HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all

It's not calmed down much here. The car-port roof is spread around the garden. We'll check everything else when the wind subsides.

I'm so so bored stiff

Garden Jeannie, seedaholics anonymous really exists does it? I shall have to check that out. 

Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 14/02/2014 at 20:01

I've usually got some spare plants around and I can always make more. I wonder how we can find out what gardeners will need. 

Have we forum members in the flood area? If we have, they're probably not in a position to respond at the moment. Members in or around the flood area could perhaps update us when the time is right. For now, I'll get growing.

I wonder what the time scale is here. Forecasters are talking about a change coming but it will take a while to get back to normal

Lucky Verdun, they take so long to start into growth here that it's too late before they get round to flowering. 

Planting akebia (chocolate vine)

Hello pariate

I agree with fidget, akebia has interesting flowers, said to smell of chocolate?, I've never had enough flowers to smell and no seeds.

They often turn up in the herb section at our local GC.

if this search copy works there are a lot of suppliers there, otherwise google lemon verbena suppliers

Potato tree

If you're talking about Solanum crispum it won't kill an apple tree unless it totally covers it in growth so that the apple leaves can't find the sun. 

 

What damage has the wind caused you?

Posted: 14/02/2014 at 11:56

The downside to a good view. We're pretty exposed but in the east we rarely get anything like you get in the west.

The Javan dust and our floods and winds  bring it home to us that we're not really masters of the world

What damage has the wind caused you?

Hostafan, that's bad. Where are you, it looks very exposed. 

No real damage here, masses of small and medium sized sticks to pick up, but no floods or structural damage so far. Tonight's forecast looks wild again.
