HELLO FORKERS!

Lovely warm day.  Will apply nematodes to veg patch after another cuppa.  My promised lunch out did not materialise but a delicious mushroom omelette was provided instead.  It was a case of wait a while to eat or eat NOW.  

 

Talkback: What to prune in spring

Posted: 07/03/2015 at 08:35

Mine are pruned in autumn here in Cornwall ...and anything not done will be pruned now.  However, end of March is best in England!  

Miranda, you don't say which salvias but the micryophylla ...shrubby, Woody varieties.....types are quite hardy.  Same pruning as for fuschias for me.

It's my birthday

Japanese anenome

Go for wild swan instead of the jap anemone type.  Better flowers, longer lasting and utterly beautiful 

Slug..... Or is it ?

But I have seen a worm 3' long with a zig zag on its back and it was quite scary.

I uncovered plants,,including dahlias, that have been over overwintering  under polythene. wont be too cold here tonight and I feel it helps harden them off a little more,quickly. Will watch the weather over next couple of weeks though.  Everything is moving though.
