Hello forkers

Nice n sunny this morning.

A gaping hole has just opened up destroying a pavement from,Penzance to Newlyn.  All this rain is now taking a serious toll.  Unprecedented consequences. 

Have good day folks

Wouldn't it be great if we could all share our surpluses.  I regularly divide plants, for example, and it's nice to give excess away.

Forester, I suggest you buy another and plant it in more sun.....mix some compost, dried manure ( this can be quite strong so not too much of it) in early spring.  Keep,it well watered.  Actually, I would keep it in a pot until new shoots are seen and then plant out.  Good luck

Oh I'm surprised forester.  Only times I've seen them fail is on dry poor soils.  Perhaps you are right....maybe just a bit too shady.  Mine are actually in sun....most of my garden is sunny....but in good soil.  How about dividing a plant....I simply slice up with spade.....and try in more open position.?  I often try plants in different positions, sometimes just slightly removed, and the difference can be surprising.

 

Gardener come.....

Punkdoc, I'm so envious.  Should have saved my pennies better.  Test drove a fiat  500 convertible in the summer...it was a hot day and it was great drive.  Tad small though. A drive in the open air was always a great stress reliever for me....radio loud to attract the girls 

No not heard that fidget.  Seals seen almost daily just half a mile up the road though.

Stacey, what sort of yummy cakes?   Cant imclude the calories in milk.....its all that protein, calcium,vits and minerals  (im a gold top drinker and always joking, when people look, that Ive got high cholesterol and drinking gold top reduces it  .ha ha.   My cholesterol level is 3. 2 so Im happy to drink loads of it). 

Dont worry..sure the weather will be just fine for your drive
