HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 09/04/2014 at 19:47

Hello all,

Yes it's been lovely today. I missed the last ****up so please can I come to the next one?

I saw a dreaded lily beetle today on the snaky heads. I've had lilies for years and never seen one before. I checked all the lilies that were coming but but didn't see any more. There are no gardens anywhere so I was hoping they'd never find me.

Glad your mum is better. Verdun. even if they are keeping her a bit longer.

Good morning everyone,

Lovely mornin and my mission for today is to dig a sweetpea trench and  put lots of rotted pony poo in. My sweetpeas have been in pots outside for over a week so it istime they are planted out.

I love Bishop's Children, Chicky. I'm not the most successful gardener but these dahlias were so easy from seed and did flower in the first year and made small tubers. They are still going strong after four years. I leave them in the garden and cover with some bracken in the winter.

Have a good day all.

Squirrels

We've always had lots of squirrels in the maritime pines that border the garden. They can be a bit of a nuisance digging up the tulips and raiding bird's nest but I  like to see them in spite of this. Since the storms in February I've only seen one.  Has anyone else noticed a lack of squirrels?

I hope you don't have to listen to your neighbours son and girlfriends giggling outside at all hours, Kef

We used to play cricket  and the balls kept going in a neighbours garden. We thought at the time he was a grumpy old man but I can see now where he was coming from!

 Is this the daffodil you are looking for,Dove? I never planted it and it's growing in an area of brccken down the bottom of my field. It is quite low growing and hasn't really spread although it's been there over 25 years. if it's the one you want I could send you 2 or 3 bulbs.

So sorrry your mum has been taken ill, Verdun, butif it's any consolation if she's in Treliske it has an excellant reputation for stroke patients.

 

 

Window boxes

I've mentioned this before but I put a cheap disposable babies nappy in the bottom of tubs and hanging baskets. They have some sort of water retaining crystals in and can't be harmful if used for babies. I pull the nappy open before I put it in the basket and seems to work really well. It works out cheaper than the crystals bought for the purpose in garden centres.

Fooled me too. I'm disappointed it wasn't for real.

Happy Mother's day all,

Son, who lives next door, has invited me for breakfast and then going to daughter's for dinner tonight so being spoilt.

Still in bed so better get up and walk the dog and feed the shetlands. Takes the animals a while to get used to the clocks changing.

Have a lovely day all.
