HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 14/09/2014 at 10:29

Day off for good behaviour. Little sister gone to look after Mum. Sadly second operation does not appear to have worked, so Mum is now nearly blind.

I am going to try and relax in the garden, hope you all manage to do the same.

You could over winter it, but it would need to be kept indoors, or in a heated greenhouse.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all, very foggy here.

Sadly my Mum needs to go back into hospital, as the last one has stopped working, trabeculectomy for those of you who up with the lingo.

I am driving down again this morning, so am not sure when I shall get on here.

Speedy recovery to you Dove, and enjoy your gardens everyone else.

If you have plenty of other shoots, I would not worry.

Make sure the damaged stem is cut neatly with a slanted cut, which means that rain drops will run off.

Pruning overgrown honeysuckle

In my experience Honeysuckle can take a really radical haircut. I do mine in Spring, using absolutely no finesse at all, just hacking huge amounts of stuff off. It always seem to come back strong.

I have no yellow either. Mine are labelled up, so that I can place them better next year.

Talk about daylight robbery!

Gardening is different things to different people. I get much more pleasure from a plant I have raised from seed, or cutting. By raising lots of plants, I am happy to try them in situations which may not be ideal, and am often pleasantly surprised by the outcome. I would not be so happy to do this if I had paid a lot of money for a plant.

I do enjoy an online shop though, to buy something unusual. In winter I seem to spend a lot of time looking at plants online. It is a lovely way to spend some time, particularly with a glass of something for company.

At the moment am waiting for a consignment of bulbs to arrive, always good when they arrive.
