HELLO FORKERS!

Busy gardening afternoon...lawn cutting, evergreen trimming and shaping, weeding and a little planting.  Lovely day with not much sunshine though.

i have 2 clematis that I am not sure what to do with them.  Planting through shrubs just doesn't appeal to me..........they spoil the host shrubs and affects future flowering.  Had a jackmani growing over a ribes.....looked sensational for most of the summer but the ribes was overwhelmed by it.  Clematis grow so vigorously here.

I feel exactly as KEF.  A living, loving, animated person to suddenly a memory.  For me its a difficult thing.  Grew up with my dad telling me "lIfe is short boy" to realising how right he was.  

it doesn't mean lesser respect or feeling but some move on quickly and others don't

Feeling increasingly warm now with sun trying to say hello 

pricked out parsley, planted abutilon, divided large cannas and planted in large pots, planted last dicentra alba.  Split couple hostas.

 

Cytisus 'Lena' shrub

Gordy, brooms really hate being moved.  Usually they die.  

How long has it been there?  If just for a few months then it's worth the risk.  Otherwise leave it alone

I like Lena too.....really showy in spring ....but really likes sun 

To one off nematode slugs or not?

Went out with torch and salt solution and picked up several snails and slugs. First time this year.  Not the nicest job in the world but effective

Ashes are tokens only........for my mum we will scatter in places she loved, enjoyed or spent time in.  Her church, her garden, where her daughter's ashes were scattered heads ago, and her favourite walk way.  It's just about respect 

I guess I'm an atheist too.  Can't imagine a caring creator when I see the problems in the world.  Can't really believe in evolution either.....for me ts an impossibility. Like throwing ingredients in the air expecting to see a cake!

No Runnybeake didn't sow radishes .....forgot . Will do so tomorrow.

planted out more lettuce plants though now drizzle has gone.  

Not exactly sure where to plant out lysimachia bougelais (?).   For 3 plants so a group or 3 individuals.  

Bought some hot chilli plants ...scotch bonnet.  Maybe Stacey can say if they are hot enough..  Potted up into 9 cm pots. 

Anyone growing sunpatiens?  The hype about them is attracting me.  Bought some for containers

For not much more Sandyr, you can purchase a buzz in a 2 Litre pot and enjoy the flowers this year not next year or year after.....if at all
