MORNING FORKERS

Good morning,everybody.

I looked like George Clooney when born but improved as I got older.

Well, it's pouring with rain here and temperatures down to minus 3.   Apparently, its freakishly icy winds from the atlantic  Just suddenly become winter.  And I forgot to take in my tender plants.  So much for our summer

Trailing plant for chimney pot.

I grow convolvulous maritima in a chimney pot.  Maybe not evergreen but semi evergreen and cascades to the ground with velvety lavender blue flowers all summer

Hiya winniecat

Its not a big border is it?  6' x. 6'.  Small tree may be too big there esp as ??ou already have some plantIng.  However, how about a Pieris?  I grow a variety called Flaming Silver......green and white leaves, red new growth and white spring flowers.  Evergreen too.  Not exactly prairie plant but would fit in.

 

Tomato pests

Yes Mary, prob caterpillars.  I deter them by hanging a fine mesh drape across the door opening and window opening.  Dont spray....no point growing your own if you have to spray.  Often caterpillars are motionless on the stems or they are under the leaves.....difficult to see very often.  I find they usually focus on one plant.
