HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 28/01/2015 at 08:56

Fritillary, your penultimate sentence clearly shows you are RICH.    We all get down and it feels like the end of the world but then life picks up 

morning folks.  Hope this imminent cold snap doesn't affect you too much

got a scare last night.  My Barclays online account was all over the place with funds missing.  Suspected hackers.  Then investigations showed Barclays were having computer issues.  Relieved that this morning all is well again.   My £5 million is safe

 

Dying Yesterday Today and Tomorrow Tree

Posted: 28/01/2015 at 08:46

Over the years I have seen "professional gardeners" mutilate and even kill all sorts of shrubs.   Customers pay large sums of money for Cowboys to come in without any real knowledge and destroy their gardens.  

Probably this  is an area that needs now to be properly regulated.

It's my birthday

HELLO FORKERS!

Light drizzle at times today but not too bad.  Not liking the forecast though.  

Igrow, the moderators remove posts for very good reasons.  Often because they are offensive or mischievous.  Their role is essential to keep forum functioning well 

still sorting stuff re my mum and decisions to make.  Been reading a book my mum was writing about her life.  Making me smile and see her in a different......even more respectful...way.  Her sense of mischief, her comments and her descriptions of the way things were so many years ago make wonderful reading.  My niece has pinched it now............

Hellebores

some of my hellebores are a little late this year for some reason.  Others are as normal.  But, yes, loads of time for hellebores to do their thing.

dividing hostas

Posted: 27/01/2015 at 13:00

Used to sell plants and dividing hostas was a regularly successful thing.  For me division could be done at any time of year.  However spring is safe and, as Obelixx said, a bread knife is perfect.

a large hosta divided and replanted as a group looks far more effective than the original plant. usually hostas respond very quickly

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

How big are vine weevil grubs?

Posted: 27/01/2015 at 08:30

No Chicky.  Nematodes for warm weather use only.   They will only be supplied at the appropriate time anyway

Are they any good now

Posted: 27/01/2015 at 08:28

Bekkie, it's not really just about viruses.  

Barry, if it's about sentiment for your neighbour how about taking just one plant? on a practical level new plants will be easier to plant and be more productive 

 

Overgrown shrub- can I cut back safely?

Posted: 27/01/2015 at 00:27

Because it's such a lot to cut back I would wait until spring.  New growth could be damaged. We are getting mild spells then cold then mild again so new growth could be affected.
