MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 22/06/2013 at 08:17

Good morning all,

Have Verdun and Monty ever been seen together in the same room? It's strange that Verdun mentions plants that are then featured on GW. Last week  it was geums.

I'm a bit worried about Nigel. He always seems  to be lying down. Not normal for a young dog like him. It could be he's bored silly with the filming.

Have a good day all.

 

 

LEAVES YELLOW EVEN WHITE

Just looked on the RHS website about contaminated manure. Apparently some pastures are treated with aminopyralid which does no harm to the horses but passes through them into the manure.

Hi Lynne,

I believe there's been a problem with some manure bought from garden centres. It  may have mixed with straw that had been treated with weed killer when growing. It was suggested to try to sow some quick growing seeds such as lettuce to see if they germinate in the manure.

Need help identifying trees please

Hi Robert,

Could it be amelanchier? The berries are edible but the birds always get them first.

Good morning all,

Lovely and sunny here in Verdunland. Looking forward to going to the Royal Cornwall  Show on saturday.

I spent yesterday erecting a temporary rabbit proof fence. (just about 12ft long not hundreds of miles like the one in Australia) . The rabbits have been giving my plants a Chelsea Chop but hopefully once the plants have grown a bit I can remove the fence.

I quite agree with MMP about dogs. They are happier when they know their place in the pack.

This is my German Shepherd with his security blanket. He's nearly 11 now and according to the on-line dog age calculator that is 87 in human years.

How did you get on at the vets with Max's paw MMP?

Today I feel so happy....

I was lucky enough to go up to London last year to see 'Warhorse'. We stayed overnight with friends near Oxford and saw lots of red kites. We have lots of buzzards in Cornwall but it makes the news if a red kite is spotted here.

Over the last few years there are lots of greater spotted woodpeckers about. Really pretty birds. When the electricy poles on our fields were inspected they said one had to be replaced as woodpeckers had been nesting in it. I thought it was a joke at first and laughed when he told me. Why dig a hole in a electricy post when there are lots of trees about?

I'll try that this year big ed, or next spring when they flower. Never thought about eating the flowers.

MMP you made me laugh when you said you passed the phone to the parrot. I've asked my dog to 'speak' at times when these phone calls come in but he hasn't got the vocabulary of your parrot.
