Hey wood green, you sound really nice guy. I identify in some respects with no children but great uncle and a passion for gsrdening.
I started a thread recently for just this get to know something of the,people who post here. I have come to like an awful lot of them
I don't like the squabbles lately but the forum is good.
Love that bit about your late wife standing at your shoulder....that's wonderful

What has happened???

Sam, I was asked to join too if I disowned a particular member publicly
There is a big effort to close the forum down. If we didn't speak up you wouldn't have known.
I too am beginning to feel like giving up now

Scotkkat, don't know those varieties. I had success with two varieties I bought that would not thrive in the ground yet have loved vpbeing in pots.
Chicky, Heucheras do tend to die down a bit and spring back about now. Mine are shooting, all is not lost, far from it

Hiya Lynn
Prob so, magnolias won't have liked this weather much. Lanhydrock is further east than me and it's been very cold there this winter
Re Heucheras you may be right about exposure but some of he newer varieties are not too robust

Good Evening FORKERS

Well done zoomer.
Once I get started I won't stop....hopefully next week. So much to do.....summer veg sowing, ESP
Lettuce to go out, shallots in, peas growing. Always a slight sense of panic in April when so much still to do

Lyn, ??ou pinched my own words.
Scotkat I have several varieties. ..some better than others. Heucheras can be temperamental and fussy. You may have t o try different spots for them til you get it tight. But lovely plants

Can you give fuller description floyd?
Check out helxine.
It's not good time to use glyphosate right now. It's hormone based meaning the plant needs to be growing strongly with new growth. Glyphosate can be used when temps rise bit more
