Eucalyptus Tree - should it stay or go?

Posted: 11/10/2013 at 09:01

You have to dig it up now., eucalyptus grow fast.  I've seen so many planted too close to houses one requiring professional removal

Hello FORKERS.  Bit late.  Busy bee.  Well done Dove.   We can now all keep up with each other, avoid reprimands for posting  elsewhere and avoid confusions 

Been lovely today...out of the wind it's been fairly hot ....



Design ideas for a very small garden

Posted: 10/10/2013 at 13:44

What type,of tree is it?  Can it be removed?  Don't do's usually horrible, slippery and dead. Use the money for a nice swing and slide 

Such a small garden needs to be simple too....just a couple of nice evergreens as structure, I think.

Think it best to buy perennials you really want rather than a hotchpotch of the supplier's choice

Taking the plunge

Blimey that's a lotta bulbs AJK. 

Yes, you could  make some cash in the spring.  Good idea.  The polyanthus you referred to in another thread would sell well too if you pot up into 9 cm pots

You can divide small,clumps too, of course, AJK.  Very small pieces can be replanted or,potted up.  Yes, seeds too.  I would sow in early spring

Bit cheesy Stacey!  

Is it time....unification of evening and morning FORKERS?

Posted: 10/10/2013 at 13:02

Since we are all overlapping now and posting on both evening and morning FORKERS.....I do it too it now time to unite the FORKERS?  (glad there is a spellchecker there )  Maybe keep the FORKERS bit, say "hello FORKERS" .  It would still respect Brumbull's place as the originator.  So, what do you guys think?  Shall we have a yes, no response and nominate a proposer?   I nominate Dove as she slipped me a fiver earlier 

Good Evening FORKERS
