Do I talk too much.?

Mike, Mike Mike.  Clearly you are loved here.  Polite, knowledgeable and apparently kind.  

Occasionally I take a different view to you.....but then I do with everyone and I am an argumentative so and so......but I enjoy your posts.  Funnily enough I once posted a similar thread...same title if I recall correctly.......

Have great day Mike.  Keep posting 

 

 

Decision of the day

Dove, I'm in a similar situation. Want to apply lawn fertiliser but ground was too dry few days back.  Decided to wait for the rain yesterday.  Dry now and later so will apply later anticipating more rain but, in any case, will put sprinkler on.

However, I would not water this morning preferring to do this in the evening.

You do realise I will have a greener, lusher lawn than you this year, don't you Dove? 

HELLO FORKERS!

Pouring down now.  Good steady rain for few hours now so will do lot of good. Warm though.  

Jacobs Ladder & Japanese Camellia

Nice......free Mikey?  Grow a variegated polemonium...Jacobs ladder...and love it.   I would keep camelia in pot.....acid soil if you can....but plant out Jacobs ladder in good soil soon.  

Dying Red Robin?

I would wait a while longer....ESP with rain about now.  It may pick up.  If so, I would prune it back.

Photinias are a fickle plant.    They suddenly seem to be "ill".  I have Pink Marble though looking good amd little red robin looking fine.  Photinias drop an awful lot of leaves too

Got some planting done......eryngium Jade Frost in a group of 3 and a trio of osteospermum voltage yellow as well as a group of linum perenne.  Now it's raining but tomorrow will reveal a lot of growth because of it. 

Starving.  Usually eaten by now but my niece is cooking.......so have to wait a while longer!  Mind ??ou got a couple of Easter eggs to snack on.

Hello forkers

Easter Sunday again......time goes so quickly.  Only seems like a year ago when we had the last Easter Sunday 

Dry, sunny but short lived according to the weatherman.  Rain by end of the morning so will get some planting done and lawn fertiliser applied 

Lots of pear blossom on back wall promising plenty of fruit 

Hope everyone has good day

Looks like a repeat of yesterday's soooooooperb weather.  The warmth is making everything grow pretty fast now. Starting to repot things again.

 Lots of stuff in large pots to go out.    Will plant up a few containers too....fuschias, diascias, bidens,,etc........exciting, right?  

Ground is pretty dry now.....could use the rain tomorrow, if it comes.  Will apply lawn fertiliser later in anticipation of it.  

Veg patch is almost entirely under fleece for moment.... Seeds, sets, seedlings protected from birds, pests, cold etc.  always nice to remove fleece to expose rows of veg.  

Be healthy folks

32 meg broadband David?  Mine is barely 3 so very, very jealous. Fibre optic 1/2 mile down the road and 1/2 mile up the road.  

What to plant in VERY tall, narrow planter

Posted: 18/04/2014 at 20:10

Hi pariate, 

Libertia goldfinger is an evergreen, olive/yellow/ red grass like elegant plant.  Your planter is not that tall but Libertia would look classy in blue container.  Stipa Tennuissima too would look great in it.
