HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 21/08/2014 at 14:00

Another quite lovely day.  Sun just blasting out  Hope the weather guys keep forecasting not so good weather.  

Been asked to recommend a plant for a pot outside.  Not so easy when choice is so wide.  So folks....for someone not a gardener, must be easy to look after, look good all year round and flowers too...?    I thought of a pieris or dwarf rhododendron.  What would you guys like if you only had one choice?

Will be treated to a meal later....so cannot eat too much right now. ......in theory  but....... Reasoned a big lunch will have been forgotten by mr tummy by 7 45 so could squeeze in a donut or two this afternoon as well.  

Re Tim Vine's jokes.........love those one liners.  They sow....sow?......have me in stitches?  .......I'll get my coat 

 

Football season - 2014

Would like to see Arsenal   do well.....but think they will struggle. 

Liverpool too.

But emglish clubs will not do well.  The Europeans have Sussex us out, no longer fear us and simply are better than us.  Anyway, none of our teams are remotely British....foreign players, coaches and owners.

I agree Matty.  Cuttings  are best if there is a lack of self sown seedlings.  Sooner the better and I would use a gritty or perlite rich compost.  And nice long reasonably thick ones too. 

good luck Matty

After a good day in the garden

I think Mr Toast would like Marmalade Orchid   

Pretty hot here again.    

Heleniums are prob the most,showy plants right now.  Their reds, oranges,,yellows, browns are stunning.  I have several varieties and all are flowerimg their socks off 

I have noticed colour differences in my frikartii Momch plants.  One is distinctly more pinky lavendar whilst,others are more blue.  I recall buying Monch from  a nursery claimiNg  it to be either an improvement or a variant but cannot remember it's name.
