HELLO FORKERS!

Hello forkers

Beautiful morning and getting hotter.  91 degrees yesterday.......lovely.  (or was it 19 ha ha )

Damp this morning because of heavy mists.......snails and slugs would have enjoyed that.  Steam rising from my garage roof.  

Hope everybody enjoys his/her day

Yews domt really like it too wet or too claggy, in my opinion.  They domt take to being tramsplanted either.  Moved many conifers but have lost a couple of Taxus/yews.  I wouldn't water for a while.

If in doubt contact the manufacturer but I too think its simply as fidget suggests.

I wonder Peanuts if your rozanne is growing in wet ground?  My own plants are mound forming.

Tempted to go for some I saw at Chelsea......some wonderful new varieties now. 

Netting for carrot

Fleece is the ideal thing for carrot fly. You can keep it in place all summer if you want to.  Keep it fairly loose to enable unfettered growth though.

Replacing conifers

Hiya Tom

Yes, they are imposing aren't they? 

I think the extra space in your garden, the extra sunlight too, would be good there.  So,,climbers on your fence?  Evergreen and deciduous .......honeysucklees jasmimes, clematis momtana, solanum?  

How do you feel about removing the conifers.?  Up to it?

I think hogweed has shown you the reason Lesley.
