Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 05/04/2013 at 22:51
Good luck on National day! Just make sure your horse has a good leg at each corner and the jockey is facing the right way round! If all else fails you can always set your BBQ up at Beechers Brook! (Sorry...... that was in slightly bad taste! Still..... shame to waste, eh............)

Gets coat and leaves....

All the best, Adam

That's a great price Rosa/Bjay! I just needed 20 bricks today and paid 40p each for those engineering bricks from B&Q - and I thought that was an OK price!

What's the weather like in your area?

Good idea Zoomer! I was looking to complete last year however the weather was so bad I only completed about 5 ft throughout the whole 12 months. The remainder should be fairly routine as I can run the cable under a path I'm planning on laying through the lawn. It's all good exercise which I very much need!! I'll be sort of sad when it's finished as I like a good 'project' on the go! Mind you....... I'm sure I'll find another challenge to occupy my time and give me a work out

Today was fantastic here in NG5! Still a chill in the wind but there were many moments when the wind abated and you could really feel the Sun's warmth! Was down to one layer of fleece so almost tropical, eh? Stayed out until 20:00 digging a 2 foot deep trench to continue burying an armoured cable under a newish border that needs planting up. Completed about 15ft today and dead chuffed as I'm now about 2/3rds the way down the length of the garden (165 ft). This has been a satisfying but back braking work of progress off and on for the past 3 years. Could have the cable down to the hose by year end ready for connection and lighting next year Phew!

Hope everybody else had a rewarding, warm and enjoyable day! Here's to the weekend folks!

Thanks for the tips folks! Only sowed mine in the heated propagator last night so got a few days yet before they show themselves!

I'm growing Cosmos from seed for the first time to add throughout the garden. Would like to grow the all white varieties but was seduced by 'Picotee' with its raspberry coloured edging! Any top tips or recommendations for care, other varieties etc

Evergreen fast growing shrubs

Photinia 'Red Robin' is pretty fast growing and can be pruned into a hedge form. The green and red foliage works well too!

what jobs done over easter.

Posted: 03/04/2013 at 23:05
Cleaned and de-weeded path, cleared patio, shredded and bagged up an apple tree I took down a few weeks ago, mulched two of the beds and tidied up shed. Also brought out table and chairs from the garage ....... now there's (misplaced) confidence in Spring coming in with a vengeance!

I've got an ongoing problem with a mole! It keeps on giving out confidential information to other gardeners!
