Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 10/10/2013 at 19:47
Evening peeps,
Sorry fairy, I don't want any more buddleias, got a whole over town hedge of em. Actually its bud n laural, both overgrown but its ok for now. We have a gennel (pronounced Jen-ill as in poorly jenny). Others of you may say ginnel (, as in give nell) or snicket. Anyway it runs down the right hand side of our garden and the bud/laural do a good job there.

Nothing done but work today. Very tired and a bit anti social if I'm honest. ok, ok I'm just a mardy cow. ( anyone know that phrase, im told its local so apol if it doesn't make sense). Having bath to chill out. Wine later maybe to cheer up. But got greenhouse to look forward to! Wonders how thought of wine can bring happy thoughts...
Night all if im not back later.

Is it time....unification of evening and morning FORKERS?

Yes please, great idea. Thread title ? Forkers and diggers? no seriously we don't need the stress of who likes what, im happy to stick with first idea whatever it was, sorry waffling...
We will need to regularly post a message on other threads so non regular s will get their email esp those who hibernate over winter...and know where to come.
Could we also have (any) title in capitals ( uppercase if you will) so its easy to find.

BL - snap, I planted wall flowers and pansies yesterday, or was it at the weekend? Wallflowers 3x orange, 3x cream and 6 orange pansies. Small patch in the border though not a planter, probably needed 4x as many (always make that mistake) What colours did you go for?

Greenhouse sorted (happy smiley). Buying one from eBay. Aluminium frame, sliding door. 6 x2'. Rails fir seed trays but will make shelves. lean to type but back panel included which will need as against bamboo fence. Glazing unsure about , it says 'ultimate glazing system' so whether its glasss , polycabonate not sure. not as perfect as my bespoke design, door seems to be only vent, but very happy.
This year I've worked out how to prune my buddleias. Need em high but not bushy at bottom. Will cut to 1-1.5' below fence height. This will grow 3' above fence, perfect. Keep base / width in check by cutting well back throughout summer ( OH did this so he could move about, I told him off, but it worked well). Does that sound an ok plan?
Night all.

Tina bet you find a use for the boxes now... Party bags only have blinkin sweets in em these days!
massive buddleias along my side fence, great sceening but hard work.
Happy news, friend having day off with me in my b'day, not sure she'll enjoy garden visits though, most aee closed by then anyway so perhaps a diff plan?
Eye test today says I need more specs, only use wm when I work but knew they weren't right. But its plant money isn't it! Even 2 pairs fir ??79 at boots, how many plants, greenhouses, bulb planters would that buy?
