Hello Forkers - March Thread

Just popped in for lunch.

Good morning playing in the garden, felt fairly Spring like, although having said that, we will probably get a foot of snow.

Is buying plugs cheating?

Excuse me if I am wrong Verdun, but I thought that you always preached buying the biggest plants you could find.

Apologise if I have miss read your posts in the past.

Is buying plugs cheating?

Some people like to buy big, fully grown plants, to create a ready made garden.

Some people like to start with plugs, or smaller plants.

Others like the pleasure brought by taking seeds and nurturing them until they are full grown and produce seeds of their own.

None of these methods is right or wrong, it is personal choice, but for me, seeds produce the most pleasure.

Well said Dove and Liri.

This thread is a great source of friendship, support and fun for me.

That is why I start to get angry when the same people, who rarely post on the thread, and who have previously been banned from the site for their trouble making, suddenly appear trying to cause trouble.

I wish that I could be like Hosta and use the ignore button, but sadly I don't have his self control.

Love and hugs to all and get out in the garden.

Hi all.

Lovely and sunny again, that's 2 days in a row, a record for this year I think.

This is just an observation and may not actually be correct, but it seems to me that whenever nastiness and stirring is about, one persons name always seems to be present and has I believe been previously been banned for such behaviour.

There are plenty of shade loving plants.

You don't have a problem, you have an opportunity, you can make anywhere look beautiful.

Pruning Cotinus

As others have said, you can prune hard, but don't forget to feed and mulch afterwards, if you want to keep it healthy.
