HELLO FORKERS!

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

Excited, my hostas may arrive tomorrow.  Heleniums next prob in a month or so.  Where do I put everything?  It looks like all my overwintered plants and cuttings are thriving too.  I guess I will have to take up more grass.

Every year I plan to have a better garden than last year.....don't we all?....so effecting this year ?   Who am I kidding?

Hello marion

Getting hoopoe too.  I grow cheerfulness for its scent.  You reckon hoopoe is as good?

Question about blueberries

Posted: 21/02/2014 at 23:07

Lunar Jim

I grow a few blueberries.  Alkaline soil too so mine are in large pots plunged in the ground.  I mulch with ericaceous compost or pine chips. Keep well watered and suspend a net over them to kep birds off the fruit.

Yes 3 different varieties are sufficient...no need to double up 

They are worth growing....delicious fruits.

Mr BRUMBULL.....COME ON FOLKS, ALL TOGETHER...YOU ARE A WEIRDO. 

Spain? come on old chap.  You haven't got two beans to rub together.

gotta laugh

Notice this guy cant sleep.  He posts in the early hours when his hot water bottle leaks....oops!  not his water bottle    He sleeps too much during the day me thinks.

 

well, I have his mugshot, know to an extent where he lives and we will take it from there....when I visit his area for a cuppa and a garibaldi 

Im not going to know if he posts now as Im ignoring him and his aliases to date.  Lets just alert the forum when we suspect another alias.  Ignoring as from now
