Blackcurrants for me too Edd. With lashings of cornish clotted cream, cornish ice cream and in porridge. Still have plenty in the freezer
blueberries.....nothing better eaten fresh.....and gooseberries eaten green
Tetley, Dinah has just told me to buy more plants so what can I do? However I am overwhelmed by your kind offer.....cuppa too
(expecting to be treated to a meal tomorrow so I will save some cash for more plants If I don't buy Big Issue this week I can save even more ....always solutions)
Glad you enjoyed the weather I sent you Lyn
Dago, a big false economy to use grow bags for a second year. Why? They are cheap. Best to use them as mulches...as already said
I have several clumps of tall iris flowering right now....unknown variety but pale blue. Been flowering for a couple of weeks. They just wont flower next month that's all
GG, no these plants are in a minimum 1litre size and pretty cheap too. Always have great plants from them. However, I will take your advice and open the "album of the fabulous things"..........I do have lots of photos of me
Philippa, Philippa, Philippa....wot you like? It's MARCH 1st
Well said and worth checking now Philippa.....I do the "gentle tug" thing on susceptible plants at this time of year. Lots of nasties have enjoyed this winter.
LG, I think your holly will recover......hollies are pretty determined to grow.
You want a lollipop.....not offering sweets I hasten to add ......so I would take a lopper to it now to get a semblance of shape before new growth starts. Wont look worse than it is now but in your head you know it will come good.
a generous feed and mulch too.
during the growing season just check on how it is performing. Some shoots will prob be stronger than others.
a supplier has just sent me a mail to say he has loads of new plants now and in the offing.
Well, I wont look at his catalogue . Won't be tempted . No way jose . I have enough plants . I have spent a fortune already . I will delete his mail without any Iota of curiosity to look
heck! That is bloomin' rude. he took the trouble to write to me and I'm going to ignore it?
nope! Going to be strong. Got a casserole to check on
I'll take a quick look see
