Thanks chicky...lovely.  

Dove, when you said "simply gorgeous" did you mean me?  

Its been sombeautiful day today.  Took advantage to move a clump of snowdrops, split a large primrose, wash 2 cars and enjoy a long walk to the beach where the sea was calm and gentle for a change.  

No grimacing on people's faces ...everyone smiling in the sunshine

Apricot bush - when and where to plant

Posted: 15/02/2014 at 09:27

Only a couple of things to add

Apricots still suffer from,peach leaf curl so it would be wise to consider a form of cover against the rain in early season.  If against a wall a polythene sheet is effective 

Secondly.......if you have an allotment this prob won't be an issue....but a certain amount of lime is also required for apricots.

I would also consider growing it as a fan on the wall.

Help for flooded gardens

In our individual way...even privately by pm on the forum......we maybe able to provide plant material to,help re stock effected people's gardens.  Of course there are more serious issues in the world buf this is an area where we can help mitigate losses.  

In a few weeks people will know what losses they have and they will tell the forum.  It's our unique way of providing support.  

Cost of the hobby of gardening per year?.

The sheer pleasure of seeing plants in the garden, of eating home grown veg and fruit, of enjoying our own personal space, of taking delivery of ordered plants, and even sharing all of,this  on the forum .......money well spent I think

Morning folks

Welll.....it's pretty good here at the moment.  Calm and even some sun. 

What a night though.......terrible winds.  Didn't help that I also had to try amd sort out differences between my niece and her partner.  Ah well!    Things will no doubt sort  themselves

Sorry Nut about the car port.  Fingers crossed that's all the damage you have 

Keep safe FORKERS 

rotting daff bulbs

Posted: 15/02/2014 at 00:43

Lorr,

Tip them out and see if any bulbs are ok.  Those with rot should be ditched but any...and there may be some.....that look ok I would pot up again or plant out.  Just check them first
