You sure woody?  It makes sense to me now......

I met a guy with 3 greenhouses dedicated to alpines.  Like you, woody, I want grow some too like that and clay pots are perfect, aren't they?  I have grown a few in troughs and want to create a scree garden sometime.  Some photos Woody?

Are your comments updating?

Planting ideas please

So much sun does it get?  Would you say dry and shady?  

However, I would suggest turning the ground again and plant wallflowers there for the winter.  You can get bare root,plants now,quite cheaply.  Then in spring spray the bluebells with glyphosate. I would then plant annuals for the summer.  At the end of the summer,hopefully you will have got rid of the bluebells and can start some permanent planting.

Where did it go to?

Hiya bigolob, agree with you.  Summer has been fantastic....still is here. ,temps around 20 I guess.  The long days of summer, lomg daylight hours,,the planning for a summer display ...where has that all gone?  I think the garden enjoyed the delayed late start and responded by delivering huge crops of flowers, fruit n veg.  (does anyone remember me saying we are in for a glorious summer back in the spring?)

Good evening folks.  To get forum functioning I submit a blank message and it seems to work after a fashion!  

At foodbank I collared cream donut and a choc bun........and, because I was deemed to have done something "nice" I was given a bag of buns as I left.  Hee hee hee.  (I may have dropped hints that I like buns....)

Been glorious day for most part. Potted up few more plants and took more cuttings.  But, everything is so "summery" it doesnt feel like a............ ( didn't say that word so I'm ok, right?) ..........  I reckon there are more flowers now than in mid summer, well, loads more.  

My order for more heleniums was confirmed today but won't receive them until April I think.  Suits me. ,more space to overwimter stuff

Oh, bit of humour!  Got another sales pitch call today...already told them not to ring again.  So I just sang a jingle in a silly voice followed by "please leave your message now" in an equally silly voice. The caller tried repeatedly to leave a message but my repeated jingle etc. left him no time to leave a message.  Had to stop though as I and friend in the kitchen started to giggle.   Childish I know!  It was fun and it cost the caller  more too.  I think they won't call again   

Right!  Let's see if this works............

Beautiful sunny day.  Stunning looking over the sea this morning.  Peaceful, shimmering water, as I sat looking at myself in the mirror I always carry.  

Morning FORKERS.

Dont expect this to post but have good day everyone.
