HELLO FORKERS!

Pimkquartet

Many of mine....and I grow quite a few.....are in the sun.  Keep them well watered in their first year and well mulched.  With plenty of goodness in the initial planting hole they should be fine in the sun.

But Mike, it's the only time I can show off when I use latin names!  

But using Latin names ensures we get the exact plant we want.  So they are useful to know and learn

Pinkquartet, 

Could I suggest you add some mushroom composf to your hellebore planting mix and as a mulch too. Hellebores like a little lime...

Busy makes great sense.  If someone posts something that's suspicious just ignore it. We have to do that in our lives anyway....we don't always get on with everybody.  Even the spammers don't bother me.....in the morning, for example, if the spammers are there I just skip past them. Easy peasy.    I pick up on every post and comment......wisely .....on those that appeal to me.

I have no idea if Brumbull will go away soon but we have to deal with it.  

Changing a thread title is not the way...sorry fidget.  We will have to change it time and time again.  There have been 4 FORKERS threads so far.  I like hello forkers.....it is not the cause of the recent issues.  The troubles started before then....by same character too.

Its funny writing this stuff knowing mr Brumbull is reading it.  Once a friend to us all, apparently, he shows a spiteful side to hurt people he doesn't really know.  Ironically he introduced some unique threads.....ah well!  Cel le vie.  I for  one cannot begin to understand that.  But it's just a forum.....nothing scary or life threatening.  

Lets enjoy it ....as it comes, day by day
