gardening advice programmes

Posted: 26/04/2015 at 10:35

I think the constant complaining spoils this forum. My heart sinks when another one comes round. Three complaining threads active at the moment. It's just a TV programme for goodness sake, the presenters are just people, some you like, some you don't.

TV programmes are designed for the entertainment of as many people as possible at one time. Not for the education of a small group. Given that the small group all want something different that would be impossible.

Have to admit I'm not a TV watcher. All that celebrity stuff lost me somewhere in the 1960s

My Paeonia mlokosewitshii is nearly out Verdun. I think I'll pass on pronunciation for that one.

1 isn't a hawthorn but I don't know what it is.

2 could be Salix 'Flamingo' but it's a bit blurry when I enlarge it.

Another photo might help

I'd agree with the weed geranium and on close inspection maybe a sow thistle leaf

Does anyone recognise this?

Maybe they did Dove

I like all the yellow and orange but not the dirty mauves

The hybrids between primroses and cowslips are very varied aren't they? I was looking at some of mine this morning. There's large and multi-headed yellow, almost orange but cowslip shape and size, mauves, pinkish, upturned cowslip. There's only Ps veris and vulgaris to choose from as parents in the garden.
