Your eight 'Desert Island Discs' plants

I will start with: Lupins, Delphiniums, Dahlias and Cannas. Picking only four more may prove too difficult.

Great thread Dove.

Montys secret history of the English garden

Just watched last night's. Magnificent.

Chatsworth is only 7 miles away, so very nice to see Paxton's greenhouse and see how he managed to get the water lilly  to flower, when Kew couldn't. London 0, the North 1.

Anybody feeling chatty?

As Dove says, Forkers is a thread for all, started by Dove, at the request of all.

It is much loved by many of us and the amount of problems we get, is very minor compared with other forums.

Ideas for a walled garden

Fully agreed with previous posts, athough not sure I would have a lawn in that small a space.

Morning all.

Still raining, two and a bit days solid, although wind has finally died down.

LiiyP., hope your back finally starts to get better, make sure your consultant keeps you at the top of his thoughts.

Finding of bracelet, did indeed bring great joy and got me many bonus points, I did suggest a Porsche would be adequate reward, but got a bottle of Prosecco instead!

Light box on and about to watch MD.

Have a good day all and hope your journey is not too bad Panda.

Did anyone see the Burt Baccarach programme last night? I had forgotten just how many great songs he had written. Even an old punk like me was singing along.

Hi all.

Been raining for 36 hours now, may need Chicky's OH to build an ark.

Thought you were as hard as nails Fg, not some Southern softie, like me.

Have a good day all.

Sad day......
