MORNING FORKERS

does this count as morning i'll probably go back to sleep thou. I've reported the kitchen spam threads so hopefully they will disappear soon.  Water went off yesterday and it's not back yet.

I've reported them too, cheeky devils!

Oh, and good morning to whoever is up and about. Heavy rainclouds overhead, expecting thunderstorms later, but newly planted perennials will be happy.

Good Evening FORKERS

That's much better, Blackest. What lovely healthy looking plants you've got, wish mine were that size already.

Fell asleep on the couch this evening, don't know what woke me up, it's 12.30pm and I'm wide awake! Will catch up on all the discussions, then head for bed. Night all!

Nearly the weekend ;-)

Hooray, you've made it! Have a great time in the garden, hope you have nice weather!

shrubs for cut flowers

Hi auntie b, I  can recommend the following shrub, has green leaves with small inconspicuous flowers in spring/summer, but beautiful violet berries in autumn that keep well in a vase or dried.

Why May?

Posted: 26/04/2013 at 08:57

I agree wholeheartedly, May is great, June too. Love the delicate green in the woods.

 My new edible bed (well probably not the lavender)

parsley, sage, rosemary ,thyme, heather , mint , chives, oregano, curry plant,

 Cloche starting to be planted.

 Starting to plant the front half two the ground is full of blue flower seeds so should get interesting after the tete-i-tete die back, nice for 40 cents of bulbs.

Loads more to go in yet.

Hi Blackest, looking good, but I think you might have to clean your camera lens, pics are a bit blurred.

crocosmia masoniorum?

Posted: 24/04/2013 at 17:21

If it was me I'd wait and see what it turns into. If it's a thug you can still dig it up and cut of any seed heads. It might have lovely flowers, in which case it would be a shame to throw it out.
