Very tempted Fg. A few days in the Dordogne might be nice. Good food and wine, followed by a bit of gentle intimidation, just the ticket.

I think there are a few of the "girls" who may be a bit handy too!

I hate bullies.

A couple that immediately spring to mind and that I have grown as ornamentals: are Chard and Kale.

Hi all.

DD you will get through this, you are a strong resourceful person, who puts most of us to shame.

Any of us in your position would feel similarly and would not be coping well.

As a doctor, I found it difficult to accept help for my depression and left things far too long, resulting in a far worse situation.

Use any help that is available, it is a sign of strength, not weakness, to seek help.

On a totally different matter, why is there a proliferation of chat sites? Seems very divisive to me. Are we going to end up with a break away forum?

When new people join, what will they think?

Fertilize penstemons?

General rule of feeding plants [ probably over simple, but works for me ]

Mulch: Spring or Autumn

General purpose fertiliser eg. FBB in Spring and maybe again in Summer.

High Potash feed in Summer for heavy flowerers.

Some people use specific Rose and Clematis feeds, I don't bother and all seems to work fine.

Try to keep it simple, there is no need for separate regimes for different flowers.

Warm enough for you Hosta?

Temperature in Grenada is a steady 27 at the moment, can't wait.

How could they manage without us?
