Hallo Steven, I agree with chicky, also, azaleas only flower for a short time in Spring. Can definitely recommend fuchsias, there are some lovely hanging ones, ask in your garden centre. They won't mind a bit of sun in the evening.

MORNING FORKERS

Good morning everyone

For some reason the "view latest post" isn't working for me today, Grrrrr!

Hoping for some milder weather today, have to pot up some plugs.

Have a good day Forkers

Why is the radish red? Because it's so "hot"!

Bad translation from German, sorry!

Fuschia seems unhappy

That's a shame, Blackest, how annoying for you , hope they survive. I've been lucky, received petunia plugs by post last week, the carton was freezing cold and they were all shrivelled and died next day. I complained to the supplier and they apologized and promised to send another lot. Just hope it's above 0 deg. in the next few days.

I wonder whether people's sheds are like their houses for order & tidiness??  (We can't throw away anyhting "just in case" & our house, loft, garage & shed all reflect that)

Ah, someone after me own heart, sounds just like us, Jeannie. Main thing is that it feels like home!

 

MORNING FORKERS

Morning all, hope you send that sunshine over to us soon.

Slightly foggy here this morning, but still very cold. The first red kite circled over us yesterday, so maybe Spring is on its way after all. All the birdseed and fat balls have been eaten up, so the birds are on their own now!

Jobs today are cutting back and repotting the Lantana and Plumbago, which are just starting to sprout little leaves. So happy that they've survived the winter in the front porch. And am expecting a parcel of double hellebores from the postman, yipeee!
