MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 19/03/2013 at 20:45
Trying to be tactful is not my skill I'm afraid Brumbull.
I'd much rather discuss plants.
When I say "everyone" I mean we all enjoy both your comments and Geoff's.
As a kid my dad always made us "put on the gloves"......boxing..to sort out our issues. I got quite good at boxing so clearly I had a lot of issues. Ha ha

Brumball, I believe you....how about starting a thread "morning....?".
I have a habit of putting my foot in it....done it on this forum and do it in real life. ,it's difficult sometime to see the offence caused by not realising it.
Someone has to step back......
If I see your thread amended by replacing "FORKERS" tomorrow morning I will be delighted to respond to it. Everyone will be very relieved I'm sure

COME ON FOLKS. THIS IS NOW VERY SILLY. BOTH THREADS ARE EXCELLENT, COMPATABLE AND DESIRABLE.
MORNING FORKERS IS A COMPLIMENT TO FORK HANDLES.
I REALLY LIKE BOTH
BOTH ARE GOOD FOR A FRIENDLY FORUM
I HOPE THIS ISSUE DOESNT BREAK UP THIS FRIENDLY ENJOYABLE FORUM.
??????????????????

I think there's room for both threads. Fork handles will always be there..although I rarely contribute to it I always read it. It's brilliantly different...unique even.

This thread is just what the forum needed..a catalyst for renewed friendliness and goodwill.

Brumball, you did the right thing. Everybody MUST complain if service is poor then standards will improve.
I recently received an order from Perhill Plants. They specialise in small plants....alpines, perennials, etc......and they are excellent. Huge range of plants. I buy plants that I know will be small but will grow quickly. The plants I reeceived were immediately,potted on Imto bigger pots and already are growing apace.

At this time of the year my berberis Darwinii is lovely. Orange flowers for several weeks on small evergreen foliage. Easy to control and prune. viburnum burkwoodii is another evergreen to consider as well as the varieties of mahonia.
I love my grasses....miscanthus variegatus makes an upright whitish impact grass ....I cut mine now and it will grow to 7 feet by autumn and keep,it's framework over winter. Calamagrostis brachytricha and Overdam flower late spring/early summer and throughout the summer and, again, with winter skeletons. ,all these grasses are well behaved, non invasive and stand up well against the wind.
Pampas grass? Yes it has it's place but it's a thug, difficult to cut back without cutting your hands and does not associate well with other plants.

Bev, I do feel seaweed spray is worth it. Not sure but I think it also has a deterrent effect on some pests and diseases
