HELLO FORKERS!

Beautiful sunny afternoon and evening here.  Perfect blue sky, no wind and dry 

Salvia Amistad is becoming richer by the day......deep  purple now.  The autumn suits it brilliantly.  Have a yellow leaved dogwood behind one and combo is striking.  

Went to see my mum earlier in the care home.  She was tired and just wanted to sleep.  A visitor .....known for her ability to talk and talk and  talk and ltalk and talk.....had seen her just before I arrived so my visit was wasted.  Ah well!  See her tomorrow

Prob over watering?  Would only cut off flowered stems.  Dianthus won't want watering now

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning folks.  Bit damp but quite warm 

Woody....my style too.  Exciting planting up fresh border.  When I do I think it will be so much better than the replaced one.  Usually it is but it takes the second season for me to tinker again for "perfection" 

Don't let autumn get to you MrsG. I'm in the  same boat because so much seems much like it was in summer and I'm loathe to cut it all down.  We will all catch up so relax

The thing about council tax is that too many on the council are overpaid and we see money wasted time and again but to keep services for vulnerable people we should pay  more council tax.  The Council has cut care support for those with learning difficulties down here ...affecting their families too.....and this cannot be right

Runnybeak  Maybe!  It just shows the sense of humour here.  Nice!  

 

Slugs and snails

Nematodes will be useless now.  Too cold.  Use in spring.

Pellets or hand picking slugs for now but dahlias etc soon be over anyway

what color is your garden

Posted: 23/10/2014 at 19:45

Still loads of different colours but purples and blues and hues from the grasses are dominant I guess

I could make an educated guess but there are so many similar varieties. 

I anticipate next year it will be taller too so it's prob a tall variety which would narrow it down a little.  Looks nice tho Kev ....
