Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 12/06/2014 at 17:49

Hello everyone, sorry I've been so vacant!  Life is a bit ridiculously busy at the moment.  For those of you on facebook, the page is Community Blooms.

I'll try and get an update on how the planting is going and post it up here in the next few days or so!

Pongo says thank you (he likes bumps)...

I'm away for a week or so now, so won't be posting.  Have fun everyone and see you when I'm back!

Newsflash - Maureen has handed over 200 plants to Zena at Shaftesbury!  Safely transferred and on their way to Somerset gardens now....

Great work Maureen!

Can I just say that one of the lovely things about this forum is the way everyone is pulling together?  For example.... Artjak started this initiative;  I did a little bit of research making contact with Andrew and the FLAG group on facebook;  now everyone else is getting on with it and plants are zipping all over the country without any help from me or others, it is just HAPPENING!!!!

You are all wonderful, fantastic people.  Big cheers!

dahlia tubers in ground through winter question.

My dahlias have just poked up out of the ground in the last week - two inches above ground now.  I'm in south wales, on clay soil, and I spread a thick (6 inch) layer of mulch (leaf mould) on the bed before winter.

Now I can see where they all are, I can start putting the other plants in around them!

Hi AJ, I'm sure that will be more than fine.  I've sent Andrew a message through Facebook too, to let him know what is happening and asking him to tell me if there is any problem.

That's right, Artjak!

I know we've now got arrangements for any plants that can get to Chicky in Guildford, and that AJ is heading down in a few days, and that Philippa is still regularly delivering plants...  but there may be other things happening too!

The only bit that I think we have really not cracked yet is a way of getting Gardenjeannie's plants down the M6.  Still looking for solutions to that one...
