Punkdoc....YOU SIMPLY CANNOT GO. 

Your honesty, integrity, frankness and openess is hugely appealing and endearing on the forum.  Clearly everyone is fond of you even though few of is really know one another.

The guy causing the issues also caused the problems a couple of years back....he has  got under the skin of most of us.  He's history.

I enjoy the forum for the fun,escapism, gardening knowledge, friendship and comments.  there is a nice group here I think....you are part of it Punkdoc

You openly talk of your depression....most of us can identify with that too....and to my mind it shows strength.

Pm from Daniel.   He has sorted the WUM.

Just typical!

Good morning Mark.  

That cold will go.  We are in for a fantastic summer......spring is looming fast.

I too would go outside a bit.  Colds always seem worse indoors

Hey, Mark, how about planning a planting scheme?  Or the rugby later?  

Get better ASAP

Hello FORKERS.....and friends 

Beautiful sunny morning.  Birds singing. Warm. Dry. Luverly 

No doubt will take advantage of the good weather but prob no gardening.

Cornwall saving the planet..........on the news it seems our indigenous black bee could help defeat the virus/ mite currently decimating the bee population.   We Cornish modestly do our best 

Have good day folks 

Winter interest for rose garden

A beautiful yellow ivy,called Buttercup would look nice there.  It really is a lovely butter yellow.  

Or, how about solanum alba?  Evergreen with white flowers in summer and autumn.  Would set off your roses pretty well I think

Tracey

Bought from lidl couple of times.. Including a potentilla that is now a superb plant so worth it. 

Hellebores are coming into the garden centres now.....get in early for best ones.  Look out for the doubles too.  Many of them are beautiful plants.  Hostas aren't too easy to protect from slugs etc but I manage to gow them pretty well.  As already said copper tape and pipe is very effective plus an occasional night visit with a torch and bucket of salt water.  Hostas are worth a bit of effort
