HELLO FORKERS!

Fairy, there are some really clever jokes in your posts these days.  So impressive 

Today has been reasonably good weather wise.  Even spells of sunshine.  Very windy  now.

A freshly picked warmed by the sun fig is delicious.  

For hellebore enthusiasts.

Well, sounds like you had a good day fidget.

No, I doubt if there is a good true dark green hellebore.

Ooo, missed the Ribes.    Yes, leave that until June.  Well spotted (my deliberate mistake) Hostafan.  Lydiaann would have had no flowers this year.  

Beetroot Problems

But....Beetroot grown well, quickly without any check produce much tastier crops.  Juicy succulent Beetroot needs a little tlc I think

Hello GWRS

slab restriction ,in as sunny and warm position as possible is basically it.  I would scatter a little organic fertiliser there too.  Dont forget to water well in the summer....although figs can cope in dry weather they do need water to establish themselves. 

Is it Brown Turkey?

Mixture of stormy weather and quiet sunshine but the big one is coming.

Nice to see Blackest back, isn't it?  

A big Red Bull surfing event is taking place just up the road from me.....hundreds of people there.  Same time we are being  urged to keep away from the coast

Lydiaann

 leave it for now.  Maybe next weekend will be dry....possibility of high pressure then....and you can do it then.  It's still early ...far from overdue.

Those shrubs will not be worrying about being pruned or not...is just you thinking or being anxious about it.  Just relax.   ,

 

Beetroot Problems

AGree with Italophile totally

I give a couple of waterings.......late spring and mid summer....of seaweed feed.  On the basis it is a maritime crop often grown near the sea I think the saltiness etc of seaweed spray is a good tonic for Beetroot.  (great believer in seaweed as a tonic to most everything).
