MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 16/05/2013 at 09:08

Good morning all.According to the weather forecast here it's supposed to be raining, but seems to be avoiding us, just grey sky, will have to water if this keeps up. Glad your weather is getting better, it's about time!

Aha, I see, but there haven't been any Kitchen ads for a few days now, I think they've got that under control.

Don't like the stickiness or deadheading petunias either, although the flowers are very pretty. I've swapped them for Million Bells for my baskets.

Pash, could you explain what "bump" means? Is it a plant?

What did you do in your garden today?

Put plastic hoods over my hanging baskets so they don't get soaked, planted another basket with million bells, scattered californian poppies on a spare bit of bed and in gaps inbetween plants. Strangely, the promised rain hasn't come yet.

Because Frank/Dad-they are all useless. No one has any common sense at these companies and they don't give a flying toss either.

That's because they've all got a degree but no common sense!!!

seedling help?

Hi Lisa, sorry you were lectured, it was unnecessary, but maybe LG just got out on the wrong side of the bed this morning!

Another thing you can plant now, i.e. as soon as the night temperature is regularly above 10°C, are french beans and runner beans. They can be frozen too, so could keep you going over the winter.

Have fun trying everything out and don't hesitate to ask again if need be, most of us are quite friendly.

Good Evening FORKERS

Nothing much done today, planted some gazania plugs out and moved a few tomato pots into the sun. Am catching up on all the posts and looking up all the plants you all mention with latin names for ideas for next year. Watching a repeat of Saturdays BGT on the side.
