Obelixx,  good timing for me to read your view on those varieties.  If you could  recommend your favourite which one would it be?

Serious! Really

Seriously lily?  Yes you will need to turn the volume down.  My singing is AWFUL.  I am loud.

Punkdoc.  I agree totally.  Brum, it's down to you.  You did say you would agree to the single FORKERS thread for good reasons.  And the change was made when you weren't here. .? And it was voted favourably on?  Right now it's isolating everyone. I stick to the new one because that's how most people voted.  I would like to chat to everyone on one thread..........que sera sera....but I actually have to skip morning and evening FORKERS to avoid being compromised.  

I will pm you Brum to hopefully agree something 

Yes pottie, the stuff washed up on the beaches is alarming.  Haven't seen it on mine but will keep my dog off for a while

Look, if the storms come they come.  I am not convinced they will be too bad.  This past week the forecast was dire but we have had 2 fantastically sunny days. We will survive whatever happens folks so don't worry.

Yep, good advice fairy.  As a matter of fact superb advice!  Wot a clever, brilliant, nice......FORGIVING.....fairy you are 

Seriously, a temporary windbreak of netting etc. is the way to go for a season or two whilst your hedge is growing rubber

One carrot to,supply you for a week farmergeddon!  Sounds impressive though 

Despite warnings to the contrary, I find large carrots, if grown well, taste just as good as smaller ones.  deeply cultivated, fertile soil and stable water supplies equal good carrots, carrot fly permitting

Can't stop the runs.....................

The paniculatas obelixx said......can be pruned as hard as ??ou like and prob best to go for.

Lily, me too. ,tempted by a new variety of paniculuta but need to identify perfect spot first.  What variety did ??ou get?

Raymond.....could be few reasons why your,hydrangea doesn't flower. ....prob as already stated but they need good moisture to do well.  If it's dry there it won't flower. 

bought 10 litre plant but received 7 lt. sellers says its a 10 lt in a 7lt ??

I agree with all the above advice.  Why not name the company here?  Tell them that and how they respond will be documented here. Naming the company helps us too and perhaps others here have had similar issues with them

Hello FORKERS.  

Astrantias will be dying back now...strangely one variety is in full flower and leaf whilst others have already died back.  they will be fine Stacey ...just don't put them in a dry spot.

Dry here but storms forecast for weekend......hmmmm!  No likee 

Will get some more wallflowers and bulbs in before the rains. 

Dove, I have a diahorrea in my garden ...the Angels fishing rod .......I'll get my coat, shall I?

Hope everybody has a happy healthy day
