Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

Hi all.

Very wind here already, ominous groaning from the Beech trees.

A lot of rain overnight, stream has white water.

Don't think I am going out today.

Stay safe.

The corms should not be on the surface, so as you say bury them a few cms. deep.

Can I be your friend please Dove?

I would like chips and mayo. with mine.

Trees, malus, prunus or dogwood?

I think the Crab Apples are great trees, with 3 season interest. Malus Evereste, will however reach about 7 metres tall.

Look on the net for smaller varieties.

what hedging? what benefits?

Personally I would always go for a hedge with wildlife benefits, so I would choose something like Hawthorn.

I have been told my comment was offensive, so I must apologise [ sort of ]

Gave up in the greenhouse, noise of the wind was too unpleasant.

Sweet peas look ok.

Bulbs are not tulips or daffodils, but may be Irises.

Not Leylandii. Needs a lot of work to keep it from becoming a monster and will suck all the moisture from the soil.

Name this plant please

It is a Crocus, although not sure which.
