@jeatacake I've got 2 or 3 already established in the garden and I'm sure they're all from Mozzers and they flower greatly. This little one is going near the back and slightly in a corner. It needs room to grow of course but I'll plant wisely. Looking forward to spring or at least this awful storm passing over 🙄
Ah, I see I'm preaching to the converted here about these lavateras! 😁 It's been bad here, as I'm sure it has there too. 2 fence panels damaged (one completely destroyed) & half the roofing felt stripped off the shed. Going to Skipton on Saturday, so hoping it's calmed down by then 🙏
@jeatacake I don't know what's happened outside greenhouse wise. Last time I was out I put any loose things away or in the bin. I've got quite a collection of plant pots 😳I intend on using as many as I can for seeds as I don't think I'll have enough trays. I've got loads of seeds to sow 😊😊hopefully when this weather's passed I can make a start. Hope it's a good day for Skipton for you. I go to Whitby on Sunday really looking forward to that 😊😊
@jeatacake 😳Yes, and and Mytholmroyd (not sure about spelling) poor folks they really are having an awful tough time. A pub there from the inside of the pub the water level was about a foot above the window. They also had a hole in the window that had a hole in it which was spewing out more water in the place. You would've though someone would've tried to plug it. They only re furbed this pub after the 2015 flood and it's happened again. Just awful for them. The wind's whistling and howling
@jeatacake Oh they do Ambassador they're always in those flowers and there are so many of them. I'm pretty confused about the poppy seeds 😕I've shaken heads but nothing. The lids are still on. This is all new to me but I can't have lost them can I? Have you harvested any seeds yet?😯
@jeatacake What a relief!! But they look so withered as though they should be ready. I'll check again 2m as I do each day. I've been plant buying today and bought a big flowering Scabiosa. I think I'll have to put it in the new patch because it doesn't look right in the border. Other places are too compact and dry. I'm going to have to have a move around oh start again! It'll have to wait until 2m 😊😊
We had rain fbis e ening. Not a huge downpour but fkrsg rain fir ammost 4 weeks. Hope you get some there. Most of my big poppy seed pids are ready now. Maybe Patty likes to keep everyone waiting? What is 2m by the way?
@kimguy Thank you. The Lavandera is amazing this year alrhough a bit 😃out of control!! The flowers have really come on strong this year it must be all the sun we've had. They'll get a good pruning after season 😊😊and those cute little drumsticks don't get me started!! I'm really pleased that I've got them here and there in the garden. I just need even more next year 😊😊
Yes they do get very leggy eventually & any strong wind can usually flatten them 😮 Thanks Christine. You too. I'm off to see an exhibition of the Terracotta Warriors from China tomorrow at Liverpool Museum. I never got chance to see them when in China a few years back.
As I was saying @jeatacake I don't suppose you'll be able to take photos of something like that will you? When I went to Egypt many years ago they didn't like you taking photos in the tombs. I got one or two. Did you walk along the Great Wall of China? I love things like that. Have a great time 😃
Thank you. Looking forward to it. 😊👍🇨🇳 I hope I can take photos, or at least a few sneaky ones 😁 Yes I walked on the Great Wall. It was unreal being there, but very busy with thousands of tourists, mostly from other parts of China. Would like to go back one day.
