A Day Out

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 11:28

Is everything else normal pansyface? on other sites, not the forum?

OL I've just checked my blocked people and it all looks much the same. 

I should probably clear it, I don't think any of them are posting now

A Day Out

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 11:07

Adblocker makes so much difference to playing on my computer.

Right now there are five blocked ads. Some of them would most likely have been jumping around and none would have interested me. 

When I visit the local newspaper site there are 14 or 15 ads blocked

I'd never buy anything that was thrust in my face. If I want something I'll do my own search.

Salvia UFO

Hello addict, good to see you.

Salvia UFO are mine and I've failed to ID them for years. Many good brains of very knowledgeable plantspeople have worked on this  to no effect so far.

Mine are failing and something ate the seedlings so when you get some seeds can I have some please

They're hardy, a very pretty mauve, 3 foot tall and don't like it too dry.

wood chips. Good or bad?

I put mine straight on the garden in winter and it's great for holding in the moisture. I don't spread them on dry soil, they'd hold the moisture out

Talkback: How to grow pinks from cuttings

Are these plants you've grown from cuttings or mature plants you've bought?

Hardy plants

Go and look at other gardens, public ones, and private ones, village openings, NGS or other charities. See what's there and what you like the look of.

Garden and nursery combined make excellent choosing places. I don't know where you live but Beth Chatto's garden (where the forum trip is hanging in the balance for this weekend) is excellent and West Acre gardens and nursery in Norfolk. You see the plants in the garden and you find them in the nursery. 

Forget -Me - Not

Forget me nots are several inches high here, self sets from this spring. Hundreds of them, need thinning and transplanting around the garden

Brunnera and forget me nots are similar in flower but very different in leaf and growth

I think they're short lived perennials, longer life in the best drained soil

Sorbaria like tree

What was sorbaria-like about it? The leaves or the flowers? and how big was it?
