What is your weather like? (2)

Posted: 14/02/2017 at 18:36

warm, sunny and gorgeous here today in Cornwall   Same again tomorrow.....spring is almost here folks! 

Divided clumps of snowdrops (they wont mind and will carry on flowering) planted out pots of blue anemone blanda soon to flower, yanked out a deep rooted old stump and cultivated veg plot.  Soil in perfect condition.  Lettuce sown, more muhly grass seed and Sanvitalia too.    Witch hazel, winter honeysuckles, daphnes, sarcoccocas and richly scented daffodils made for a most enjoyable afternoon. 

Forum names

Hazel, Hazel, Hazel..............bribery indeed!    I am shocked you think I am so easily persuaded . Er!  Would that be cream or jam donuts?  I would quite like the one that Beaus Mum has pictured 

gosh!  Nice comments folks and so many pm's too   Really appreciated. Have missed the forum and you lovely folks.  Have looked in from time to time though and tempted to make a comment or two.  

From a Cornwall bathed in warm spring sunshine how can I not succomb to those donut temptations??  Will post again soon

Morning folks 

lovely walk to the beach..  quiet, peaceful and sun already appearing 

however, dreaded reading the forum so....

Look folks.  I am calling it a day on the least taking a break from it. 

Had a few pms yesterday morning then several as the day went on.  I think I have replied to all of them. Thank you for that support

i have done no wrong, not written as portrayed and not made mischief.  Individually read what I have written and see for yourself

someone who is "not well" and a small clique who should know better have driven me out.  I don't think for one moment that any of them, apart from the lost soul, have read what I wrote.  

I think am good for the forum.  Know how to grow plants etc and have advised accordingly.....not resorted to google as some offen do.  There are other forums out there should I decide to join any of them but I wont.  

The forum has become nasty  at times.  Not pleasant.  But tbere are mostly pleasant folk here

wish you well

Perennials in 9cm pots

Bright Star, yes into bigger pots and in cold frame.

be warned...heleniums are another addictive plant.  Get one and you will want another and another. i have a dozen or more different varieties.

you want to plant salvias and heleniums together....fine but get extra compost, extra moisture holding material for the heleniums.  They need and respond to good rich soil.

low growing plants for drive

Helxine is indeed a menace down here as fritterer said.  Almost impossible to eradicate esp if in a border

Thymes for me too Heather.  On the towans leading to the beach wild thyme grows everywhere.  Lovely aroma underfoot and really tough.  Avoid anything other than the simple green spreading form

oh!  Warm welcome Heather.
