HELLO FORKERS!

Thanks folks.  Such nice people 

HELLO FORKERS!

Hot today.  Lovely 

My niece got her dream job .........they told her just as she got back here.  Her deceased mum, she was born just 15 months or so before her mum died, would be so proud of her.   Difficult not knowing your mum 

Great weather now folks

Not for me phiippa

If mine I would prune it ...yes, to nice shape but to buds lower down to encourage density. Forget flowers for next year.  A light organic feed....fish, blood and bone, the small element of lime won't affect it.....and a generous watering.  I would, however, use ericaceous john innes when planting and then a spray of epsom salts.  A position away from direct morning sun too. 

should be an arisaema

Scary isnt it Dove?  Hope your son has sorted it with the bank.  Even with the best security these guys seem to be able potentially to get our details.  I check bank, barclaycard and PayPal at least twice weekly.  

Sounds exciting concept MrsG.    Snowmound ....as I used to grow it....is just a small variety of the bride. Check out Calamagrostis for growing in a pot.  Karl Foerster is a great early flowerer as is my preferred choice Overdam.  This is a bright variegated, 6' tall upright grass and looks very good

Clearly, I have a lot to learn about arisaemas.  Any pics folks?  

Hostas

Probably best to keep hostas apart Hostafan.  

Tend to feel that viruses can be beaten by resilient plants....and people.....thereby making plants resistant in future.  If they survive the virus initially.  

What's the star in your garden right now

Fascinating aren't they Fairy?  Got a few on different varieties.  Lots of excitement re garden now.....veronicastrums, dahlias. Heleniums, agastaches,  etc. etc., etc., all vying to show off very soon. 

What have you learnt this year in the garden?

Posted: 11/06/2014 at 08:32

Morning nin

Not sure I have learned anything this year....so far.  Maybe to sow more peas.  Only have a few this year because I was too hasty and impatient.  Nothing like early peas

Beautiful morning......feeling the warmth already

"dancing shadows" Dove.....you have a fun  garden 

Sounds like spirea snowbound MrsG. 

Have already thoroughly watered plants in pots and in conservatory (pelargoniums, nothing grand in there)

Becoming obsessive about hosta gold standard now..constantly checking and assessing what any markings may mean.  

Giving moral support to my niece later.  She has been invited for interview for accountancy position with big firm.  She has just started ...one week....a new job  and told the would-be employer this.  I'm sure there will be a tasty nibble in it for me
