Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 26/04/2013 at 23:36

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

Posted: 26/04/2013 at 10:51

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?

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

blackest wrote (see)

 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.

Losetto tomatoes

Posted: 23/04/2013 at 19:53

I would say not more than 3 in a 12" basket. Losetto grows to about 12" wide. Any more and the roots won't have enough room.
