What if you rant about your neighbour and

Morning Grateful Deadhead,

A  very unlikely situation I think.  There aren't that many members on here. 

If you are worried about your neighbour seeing your post just be a little less forthcoming with the info you post.  

If your forum names are not your own there is even less to connect you with anything you say.

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Cloudy, dry, still and warm......rain later they say. ,(said rain yesterday but it was lovely)

Picking tomatoes now and loads to come.  Looking healthy and good.    No cheese yet on my swiss cheese plant yet but I'm looking forward to that......cheese and tomato sandwiches.

Ooooooo!  Depending on the dianthus.....is it a perpetual flowering commonly available garden "pink"? .....it should reflower for weeks yet.  Mine flower profusely and continuously.  Do you have the label rosemummy?  I'd guess it to be a repeat,flowerimg type ....the name will reveal all. 

Month old Lavender dying, yet same age Lavender next to it is fine.

Slate on top of the soil will have no adverse affect on your lavendar FBTurtle.  However, I would leave a little space around the rootball.

Dealing with Fuschia Rust

Posted: 31/07/2014 at 19:26

With hardy fuschias and hericum hidcote (which is susceptible to rust apparently) I cut hard back every year. I recall the great Geoff Hamilton advising us to do this to shrubby hypericums for this very reason and I self boasted I was already doing that 

Rust does seem to "overwinter" well so pruning back hard helps I think

Cuttings

Think that's right hogweed.  With grey/silver foliage I try to keep cuttings wet, compost wet initially, and glass jar over them,imsfead of polythene if I can
