Hello Forkers - March Thread

Posted: 14/03/2017 at 23:08

Dove - there's a lot more much needed light under the conifers now. The laurels have been massacred but look good for it and thought they might as well do the buddleias (never could spell that!) for me too. But money ran out for a good prune of the apple trees so just a clip here n there. The chaps did a much better job than last time I let anyone loose on my trees!!

The afternoon didn't go as planned ( does it ever?) so once again limited gardening substituted with errand after errand. Off Thursday so may get some more done then fingers crossed.

Wonky - love the bench, remember your garden before you started but was about the time I stopped posting regularly (well obsessively if I'm honest! But nice to pop back now n then to see how you are all doing). 

It is a weed isn't it?

Hello all! Hope you have all had a great winter and today is my first attack  the garden! Loving it again. Had lots of tree work done last month which has left me with 4 builders bags of mulch to use! Some bits and bobs are coming through but not a great deal so far. Struggling with remembering what's what - a first for me, I have always know the name of every plant in my garden! oh well it's fuller now so the memory needs to expand to accomodate all the names. Also had a bit of a is it isn't it weed moment ( on another thread). Going back to the garden for half an hour then will have lunch and look for some garden photos on here to make me jealous.

Just dug loads of single bits of this out, all over the place.

But then came across it as a huge clump so thought Id better double check with you guys that it is in fact a weed and not something Ive planted? 

Thank you.

Thanks Liri, I enjoyed those pics  didn't see the spheres or parasols though, and didn't get in the floral art marquee. hey ho, two days next time! and no slow coaches in attendan e! In fact Chatsworth all planned, just me and OH (who isn't interested so won't be wanting to dilly dally, he'll be under instruction not to moan, to indulge my oohs and ahhh, carry bags, provide cash, agree with everything, keep at my pace and follow appreciatively - well that's the plan! send him to beer tent is plan b, while I'm in proseccos and champers tent!). can't wait!

Aym, they are fab! and great that they don't need constant watering (lazy gardener here). I haven't seen lavertera as seeds before only the big pink tree ! so I'll be on the look out - when did you sow them and in trays or direct? will alos be converted back to nicotiana too ( always disliked the yellow washed out look).
