No private club

Posted: 06/04/2013 at 07:00
Some comments lately by pm to me and on the forum suggest there is a private, invitation only club on this forum on one of the threads This is an open, public forum, everyone welcome and no cliques. GW forum is for anyone and everyone to post whatever they wish as long as the content is not offensive, defamatory or illegal. Over past couple of days I have noticed comments being made that are meant to spoil, disrupt and ridicule. If we have a breakaway club we will simply split the camaraderie and goodwill and friendship the forum has produced. Especially over recent weeks the forum has become "fun" as well as "educational"

I'm so glad I looked again at the forum.
Gardening grandma I too am sorry at the loss of your friend. Four funerals is way too much in such a short time. I've been so full of this lurgy and self pity that I didn't take your post in properly ..or anything today really, but that's no excuse.
I find your posts encouraging and kind. Kindest wishes to you

Help Need With Container Planting

Posted: 06/04/2013 at 00:02
Welcome Luke
I'm sure tomorrow there will be plenty of suggestions
In containers I would have azaleas, rhododendrons and Camelias. Daphne eternal fragrance is a new long flowering scented shrub that I grow in a container by my front door. Dwarf hydrangea's, grasses like hackonochloa, stipa Tennuissima, elymus magellanicus, skimmias, sarcoccoca , alpines like lithodora, osteospermum ( take cuttings every year in case of losses) Helianthemums, Arabis, etc. santolinas, lavenders, rosemary, too will happily sit in pots. Convolvulous cneorum s a lovely silvery, velvety plant ith white flowers. ,Phormiums too and artemisia Powys castle, golden and silver thymes.....could go on and on.....

Wood green I too have a hankering to grow alpines. Maybe we will see you on GW poking your tongue out at Monty,!! Maybe you I'll get another opportunity to see the alpine house

Gab82. I am envious if you grow blue poppy. A photo would be good if you do
I understood it to be monocarpic......sounds grand I remembered that doesn't it?....if its allowed to flower in its first year. To overcome this I bought half a dozen plants letting half flower and half jeopardising the flowered ones for next year. Didn't work, I lost all of them anyway
We all grow some things better than elsewhere and that's the beauty of gardening

Thanks Swiss sue. That's exactly what I need. To me tomatoes are the epitome of summer.....the better the summer the more toms I get
Have a good weekend too
