MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 20/08/2013 at 17:25

Hi TT and Fairygirl,

I did google ragwort and it did say to wear protective clothing and I'm like you Fairygirl, I've got two retired shetlands and I've always pulled ragwort up when I've seen it so it might be just coincidence that I felt a bit gippy the next day.

I'm noodling too.

Good morning all,

Not posted for a while but lurk and try to keep up with you all.

That accident was horrific, Verdun. Take care. Are you popping in to the exotic nursery near there?

Hearing talk of ragwort, I pulled some up near where I live to stop it seeding everywhere, stupidly not wearing gloves. I felt really dizzy yesterday but gradually feeling better. I know it's poisonous especially to horses but could it have this effect?

Hi flowersforbees,

I think it could be knapweed. A wild flower and good for bees.

A bit cooler today in Verdunland.

Please, Fairygirl, can you make the thunder overnight?

Love the photos, Punkdoc. Heligan is my favourite. Is the pond in the Italian garden at Heligan?

Powdery mildew.

I've been spraying a clematis that was showing signs of powdery mildew. I've used milk and water and it really seems to be working.

I agree with the Cat.

They've probably been attacked by the dreaded lily beetle. I think the lava cover themselves with their own poo which will look like worm casts. 

HELP! plant identifying its ruining my life

Hi Holly, I think it's russian vine. It's also know as 'mile a minute vine' and I think you realise why.

My Blackcurrants taste like chicken

Hi Katiejane,

I do that with raspberries and blackberries and sloes, of course.

My gooseberries are big enough to cook with now but later on tthey turn red and can be eaten straight form the bush. I don't know the variety. The blackcurrants will need a few more days to ripen. The cordial sounds lovely. I might try that.

Good morning all,

Hope you are all enjoying the weather.

I know how you feel about your son, Tina. My son had an operation on his thyroid recently and had to get information from his wife. Still our babies though. He's fine now and I hope your son will be too.

Hello :)

Hi Susan,

Welcome. I hope you like cake as much as gardening.
