HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Beautiful sunny day and have spent a few hours in the garden,  edging lawn, planting foxgloves and trimming a few shrubs.  Lots of singing birds and loads of ladybirds enjoying the sunshine.

Have worked my way though half a family bag of mini eggs this afternoon

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Me too Dove, I've trimmed the front lawn and clipped a few shrubs.  Planted out 15 foxglove Albas.  Seeds are nearly ready to pot on.

Frankie, I'm sure there are lots of people on the forum who garden with a disability.  You should start a thread and invite members to share tips and advice.

Afternoon all,

Sorry to hear that your mum isn't well Dove, hope she feels better soon.

Pat, those cakes etc look wonderful, we have just finished all the leftovers from Secondborn's baby shower so trying to be good at the moment.

It's grey and rainy here this morning so no gardening today.  H*******k has been done so treated myslef and spent an hour or so looking at plant porn.  Have identified some spring bulbs that I want to plant in the Autumn, wish they would stop sending me catalogues

Plant Food

I too put Fish Blood and Bone down in Feb/March and mulch with farmyard manure.  I give roses a feed in June using David Austins rose food.  I use tomatoe feed or one of the miraclegrow type plant foods (whatever is on offer at the time) for baskets and pots and I also use ericaceous feed for Rhododendrons, camelias and other acid loving plants.

Is this the start of Escallonia leaf spot?

Mine had definite black spots as well as yellowing leaves.  Can't see any spots on yours and the other leaves look really healthy.  I would remove any yellow leaves and see what happens.
