The OH planted some, the ones that did germinate in the greenhouse, there wasn't an awful lot, half died, all of the blue are dead, and he's just lost half of his purple, they've almost been as much trouble as the peppers!

Gardeners who love their feline friends

Oh I am glad this thread has picked up again! I love seeing photos and hearing about your pets. I am a big fan of the older feline gardeners here!

Only today have me and the OH talked about adding a younger little one to the brood... we do love black cats!

Hopefully more photos to come from you all!

I've not spoken or seen from you before Mike, but my thoughts are with you for a speedy recovery. A lot of people will be sending well wishes to you I'm sure, judging by this thread alone.

*hugs*

What are these I potted up?

I'm glad I'm not alone in doing this, me and the OH are both guilty of this!

Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 10/04/2014 at 21:12

St John's in in Worcester, and is close to the river that burst it's banks in the central of the city, I can't tell you too much because I've not lived here long myself!

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/uk-weather-flooding-in-worcester-causes-river-severn-to-hit-highest-level-on-record-9127025.html

I recall St John, just an area of worcester being worse effected as the bridge over the Severn that connects them to the city centre was too unsafe to use and was closed to traffic and later pedestrians. People were unable to get to work, and a lot of the shops had to close early - mine included for safety of staff returning home, and of course the lack of people able to get into town! The bus service had up to four hour queues!

From what I saw on the news the flooding here wasn't as bad as in the south, but I am aware that a considerable amount of damage was done to a lot of properties and gardens, and I'm sure there are keen gardeners out there that did have their gardens effectively ruined, but I've been unable to source local gardener groups or active forums to inquire.

There's some additional photos of the floods...

Help for flooded gardens

I don't have much, but if anyone knows anyone in Worcester affected by our floods, I have some Zinnia, Marigolds and Dahlias to give away... Nothing too exciting, but it's all I have for the moment, I will have carnations and candytuft ready in a couple of weeks too...

It might not help anyone, but I know the flooding was quite bad on the St John side of things, I was a lucky one!

Plant ids please

Valerian as in the stuff cat's go bonkers for as an alternative to catnip? Will have to look into getting some myself.

OL, It's ever such a dinky house, but it's really starting to feel like home now I'm putting time and effort into it. I think I'd actually be loathed to move now, and I've not felt like that in a good few years!
