Osteospermum Cuttings?

Posted: 05/05/2014 at 06:42

Remove the buds with your finger and thumb, and take the cutting as normal.

Morning all, seem to have started waking up at going to work time again. Has my coffee outside, and made a list of jobs to do today. I think it is going to be warm and sunny, so should be a good one.

It is strange bank holidays still feel special, even though I am no longer working.

Have a lovely day everyone.

Chicky, that wall and the new bed are fantastic, wonderful planting opportunities.

Been warm here today, so have managed to get a fair bit done, why is it that weeds grow quicker than plants?

A few of my photos from the recent Venice trip.

Morning all, up early, unfortunately not to the sound of traffic on the Grand canal, and no walk to the little cafe for breakfast.

The frost in Sheffield yesterday morning has dmaged quite a few emerging plants, hopefully they will re-shoot.

Aiming to get more stuff in the ground today, and to pot on stuff in greenhouse which is growing fast.

Have a lovely day everyone, see you later.

Bouon Journo [sp. ] forkers.

Back from Venice, second mortgage taken out, but had a lovely time doing the usual touristy things, and spending a lot of time watching the boats go up and down the canals.

No Murano glass purchased, but, still seemed to get a lot of brownie points, so hope to be allowed to spend most of weekend in the garden.

Will hopefully post some piccies later in the week.

Hope you are all having fun, will try and catch up with your goings on later on.

See you later.

It seems a little strange to me, that every time we discuss Gardeners World it turns into an I love Monty or I dont love Monty.

If you like it watch it, if you dont, watch something else.

I like almost any programme on gardening, so i just want more. The recent series on botany on BBC 3 or 4 was fantastic, if you want a bit of science.

I am also really pleased we now get Beechgrove, I used to watch it with my FIL, when we were up in Scotland and it offers something different to GW.

Music in the Garden

Band most seen by me, The Clash, 7 times. Yes really, dont know if that is sad or just love.

Camping I am afraid. Had a look at glamping before I got tickets, and you would need to be a rock star to afford it.

Morning all.

KEF have you been drinking?

Dove if you have a plant in mind, there is never a reason not to buy it.

I am so excited this morning. Just has a text to say we have got our Glastonbury tickets, via the resale. I shall now be singing all day, so stay away from Sheffield.

Have a great day everyone.
