Pdoc  on both accounts  and I don't mean chores. Hope you are right about forecast.

Dove I haven't seen that thread but I'm not telling the poor chap it's doomed..said in Dad's Army voice.

Time to put fish pie in oven and raid freezer for last year's veg that needs eating

Help! What can I do? My crocosmias have been traumatised!

I think they flower for a long period so maybe you've only lost the first lot of flowers. Mine haven't even started to show any flowering just plenty of foliage  As PS2 says they will be back next year even if the worst has happened.

OL I think you might be mistaking the stem at the back of the male flowers for a tiny thin courgette. I usually find the first few flowers are all male and females follow. Prove me wrong and have courgettes before me

Flowers are lovely fried in beer batter.

Done all weeding I'm doing today and rest of potting on all done. Critters have been chomping all over the place, even spare beans that are on patio 4' up on staging

I knew Dove would have a sensible answer  should prove interesting research. Imagine if dark curtains were the answer, more Maltesers

I can't figure it out either Clari, maybe the people they did the research with were ones who woke because it was light so didn't wake OH by putting lights on, then sneaked downstairs for a midnight feast

Off a weeding I must go

Poppy problem

Posted: 30/05/2014 at 09:14

Hi Karen, my poppies are okay albeit a bit flattened with the rain. I did have a problem with some tulip heads rotting and I put that down to the weather.

I'm sure someone will know if it is the weather or some pest.

Hi Pansyface, it's good to be reminded of what last year was actually like. I was going to record the weather but didn't. Looking at forecast 18th June this year might also be when it warms up.   Don't you be doing yourself a mischief, we've enough with a wrecked Panda

Hope work ok MrsGarden, can't help with weeding got my own to do.

Just heard on news if we have too much light in our bedrooms we become heavier and thicker around the middle, I'd better get some curtains lol. I do actually have some but don't fully close them I like the sun waking me, now OH who would prefer total darkness is going to want blackout ones.  He's slim, so let's just see how he broaches the subject

Blue foliage

Soil here is quite heavy but it does okay in a dry sunny spot. Currently in a pot of multi purpose as it is moving when the soil dries out a bit  I'll PM you.
