overwintering cannas

Posted: 03/11/2013 at 18:46

Me too, Swiss sue.  I let cannas dry off if  I dig them up, usually leave some in the ground over winter.  My feelings that they are such large clumps.....well, mine are anyway.....that they have plenty of moisture in them. .....never water them, sorry to disagree with Monty.  Maybe his is a heated greenhouse though.

HELLO FORKERS!

Know how desperate you feel mrs garden.

My sister gave her son a ring.....she died at 32 and he was 12.  We lost the ring on the beach.  We hired metal detectors and scoured every inch of that beach.  

Hope you find your diamond.  Maybe its on the floor somewhere?  Or in your clothes?

Fidget, I would love one of those.  What's the Latin name for it?    Core blimey, I'm a "stickler" for proper names.  

Wallflowers

Posted: 03/11/2013 at 13:15

I have some named  colours of wallflowers, as well as the mixed ones.  I plant these out in threes to make a really good impact.  In early spring they have united to form, seemingly, one plant about 4' or more across.  All pinched out, of course. 

Serious stuff......no! Really

Gardeningfantic,  I loved Benny Hill.  Still crack his jokes   I remember my dad having a dog called Trigger and when benny  hill sang his famous "fastest milkman in the west" song he mentioned a horse called Trigger and our dog would shoot  his ears up.   He was a very funny comedian but, like many others, was a very sad man in his private life.

Confession Times!

Oops! Posted twice.  Use other thread folks

Confession Times!

Posted: 03/11/2013 at 09:27

SInce this thread is just between me and the bedpost and confession is good for the soul, late last night I pinched a chocolate liqueur.  Then another, then......well, I got distracted and before I realised it most of them had disappeared.   No choice then, I had to discard the evidence so all gone now 

I now have to replace the chocs.  

Of course, this is a secret thread.  Anything you confess to will be used as blackmail...er, I mean treated in total confidence. Trust me, I'm Cornish
