Hello Forkers ... September edition

Posted: 22/09/2017 at 11:11

Astrantias, Persicaria and Sanguisorba to start with.

If I ever got round to sorting the orchard out, I would be able to dig a nursery bed in there, next to the greenhouse. I have probably been saying that for the last 10 years.

Strange that i am still sitting here, drinking coffee.

You really need a much more free draining compost for cuttings.

I would suggest a 50 / 50 mix with Perlite.

Hi all.

Beautiful blue sky, but very cold at the moment. Autumn sunlight is so different to summer light, garden looks quite different.

Planning some plant division today, will end up with lots of bits, but nowhere to put them, further enlargement of beds may be required.

There are a number of Clematis' that will do well in that location.

I suggest you look on the RHS site, under climbers for shade, that should help.

Thanks Dove.

That is what i did and served it with roast tomatoes and Puy Lentils. If I say so myself, it was rather good. So much better with really fresh fish, than the stuff i normally buy in the supermarket.

Not my photo, taken by Ian, who runs a wild life spotting boat out of Gairloch.

Taken in his garden. Lucky so and so.
