HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: Yesterday at 16:31

Afternoon all, starting to get everything back in shape after my time away.

Have got a mole that is causing havoc. I might love nature, but there is a war coming.

Enjoy the rest of your afternoons eveyone.

White flowers

Yes Fg, I think it is the foliage that determines whether a white border works. At Sissinghurst, the home of one of the most famous white borders, it works because all the beds are edged by quite tall box hedges. Without these it would look very stark.

I think that white can be a problem, when mixed in with lots of other colours. I know that people say that white goes with everything, but white can shine out, drawing the eye too much, so that you only see the white, not the rest of the border.

White by itself can work, as long as you have lots of different foliage and preferably some white flowers which have a touch of another colour, eg white Cosmos.

This of course is just my opinion, based on experience in my garden.

Morning all, the long hot summer [ 10 points for getting the band ] continues.

I too shall have my top off today, as visiting some local nurseries/ GCs to get ideas [ I may be forced against my will to buy something

Good luck at Carfest OL.

Continued good holidays for those on them, and congratulations to SGL on your imminent leaving of the Salt mines, I must have missed that one during my absence. What happened, I know you are only a young one?

Get if off your chest.

OL, you have always seemed very kind to me, with nice word for those who need it. Dont stop, it makes you who you are.

A productive day in the garden, although savaged by midges, although of the soft southern variety.

Cooked homemade burgers and tomato/pepper/onion relish.

All this talk of tarts and menages is not good for a mans blood pressure.

Thanks for the kind thoughts Dove, and for filling me in on some recent events.

Have a good evening everyone, I am off to get sweaty [ watching the Commonwealth games of course ]

Ex doctor, fan of punk music and some of my gardening is a bit electric pink and lime green.

Dare I say.

I am sure we can accomodate all sorts on here; those who just want to read the posts [although of course we do not know who they are ], those who like to ask questions, those who like to answer them, and those who like a natter.

The only exceptions should be those who want to be abusive, or dismissive of others. Perhaps it is also best to avoid politics, religion or sex { although personally I am fond of at least 2 of those ] Many will remember the thoroughly unpleasant situation that we got into last year. Since then things have been great, lets all use the site however we like.

The baskets sound large enough, so it sounds to me as though it is lack of light.
