HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 17/03/2014 at 08:25

Morning folks

Cloudy, misty again. Possibility of some sun

Peach trees flowering.....must remember to cover them soon re leaf curl. Tall blue irises looking nice near various daffs.  

Nice touches of pink, blue and yellow.......er, no they're the clothes pegs!  

Can anyone identify this shrub/plant thankyou :)

We  grow them outside here everywhere.  But not in my garden or in any garden if I had my way.  They are vicious and dangerous plants.  Not the easiest to eradicate either once they get large.  

Photinia Red Robin Leaf Query

Alison, I would avoid those plants.  Photinias are susceptible to many diseases.  You should always buy only clean and healthy stock of any plant.

Djjjuk

Well done.  What a battle.  What a hero.  I can see the wounded but your general hand fork and marshal gloves look tired.  Please pass on my respect to them for they have clearly given their all.  Hopefully, they will be ready for the next battle and do you proud again. 

I am sure too that you, yourself, will be mentioned on high Djjjuk.

Stacey I hope you find the ear ring.  I know such things are hugely important and sentimental.  

Peas in the Gutter

Tried it and don't like it.  I now grow in trays and plant out as young plants.  No mice problems and plenty of peas.

"see em" Fairygirl?  See what?  

Need to be careful working in the garden. Although many plants are shooting some are barely seen yet so both my trowel and size 11's need to be used with great care

well, I intended not to garden today but, armed with my telescopic cordless fine bladed hedgetrimmer, I got cracking.  Love using this new "toy"......shaped several of my evergreen bushes, as I do every year.  Euonymous aureus, pittosporum Irene Patterson, couple of conifers, pruned back berberis.  My shaped bushes...conical and rounded.....Help give form and structure to my garden.  Nothing quite like shaping bushes with good hedgetrimmer 

(cut the cable so many times in the past with corded machines that I considered it safer to go cordless)

Planted out more potted bulbs and planned where new....or tender.....plants will go too.  Got several varieties of agastaches to feature again.  And new varieties of daffs and tulips looking good 

Sun or shade?

As much sun as possible though.  It's a an lover
