Hello Forkers ... June Edition

Posted: 01/06/2017 at 11:18

Hi all.

Glad we are live again.

Lovely discovery this morning. I was up a ladder trying to remove some C. alpine, that had wrapped round the TV dish, when I discovered a Grey Wagtail nest. I knew they were nesting nearby, as I see them everyday in the mud at the edge of the pond.

Now to mow the lawns, not quite a Hosta job, but takes a good 2 hours and I don't really enjoy it.

Hope you are keeping occupied Dove and are not in too much pain.

What is this Iris?

Looks like Iris foetidissimus.

If so should have berries in the Autumn.

Is this a Marigold?

Hello Forkers - May Edition

Hi all.

Beautiful morning, just had coffee outside, already warm.

Now need to decide which of many jobs on the list to start tackling. Problem is, I usually get to the end of the day, having done nothing on the list, which has also grown increasingly longer.

Help! What is this plant?

Lavatera / Mallow.

Prune heavily, 4 - 6 inches from ground, in early Spring.

No, it is Orange Hawkweed.

Beautiful, but can be invasive.

Dahlias from cuttings

They will probably flower this year, but are more likely to produce tubers if they are in pots.

By the end of the season, they might need quite large pots.

Ragwort is the only foodstuff for the Cinnabar moth, a true beauty, so always worth keeping a plant or 2.

Probably Geum urbanum, a weed, so I would remove it.
