Outside overwintered Geraniums

Posted: 31/03/2014 at 19:10

Have a few outside and they look good.....always leave some outside over winter here.  .  Yep, cut back but I would wait just a couple of weeks longer.

Been a pretty good day here today...some drizzle but mainly dry and warm.  

Plumbing done today so had to keep an eye on plumber and his mate.  It's the hanging around that drives me craaaaaaazy.  They never come on time do they? 

Keeping an eye on the weather forecast this week to see if the trend is continuing to be warm.  If so some plants will go out.  

Warching the final part of the Widower tonight.  What a lovely decent fellow he is   Must be hard for the families of those involved to see. 

Will dig up an old jasmine tomorrow and replace with clematis Grandiflora my fav of the Montanas.  white flowers and strongest scent.

I think I read somewhere that these flatworms carry a caustic "sap".  Anyone know if this is true?

Very informative Mike 

Re magnesium I am a great believer in Epsom salts for all sorts of reasons.  As a routine spay on tomatoes, slightly chlorotic looking plants and as a boost to tired looking Rhodos, Camelias etc.

Hello FORKERS

looking bright and sunny right now.  Feels warm.  

Fasting KEF?  After brekkie I will fast until lunchtime.    As a student I tried to emulate a colleague by fasting one day a week.  I lasted maybe 3 weeks.  It was very difficult. 

Warm week to come I think

Anthony,

Apparently anemone Wild Swan is difficult to grow but not for me.   It is a new form of anemone that flowers early summer......can be late spring....onwards into autumn.  Lovely white flowers with blue backs .......making a very attractive plant.
