Come September has just been released. Order it now!
In Virginia Bickel?s second book, she turns from
historical fiction to mystery. Come September is the
story of Daniel Lindsey?s quest to identify the young
woman found unconscious in front of his store, and to

This shot was taken in the afternoon of 10th
August 2000. It contains all the cuttings that are being grown on
as bushes. These bush type plants, which are standing on the ground, are
now all in 5" pots and have been stopped three times, they are
bushing out well and will soon be ready for another stop. The next stop
may be the last one until next spring, we'll wait and see how they grow in
the next couple of months. They will stay in these 5" pots throughout
the winter period.
The next two photos were taken in the afternoon of 10th
August 2000. they display the standards from two
slightly different angles. Please note that more than half the plants are
now in 6" pots and have had the growing tip pinched out to make the
head begin to bush out. This is a very good stage of growth to be at for
this time of the year. We should have the heads partially formed before we
have to put them in the greenhouse for the winter.
Please note on this picture that to the left of the
screen you can see a backside clad in jogging pants. This is my latest
photograph, however it's not my best angle :) . I happened to be
bending over to move a plant when the shot was taken, and the photographer
caught me in the picture. Also take note of the larger plants on top of
the concrete structure, these are plants of the fuchsia Herald which are
being grown for this years shows.
This one was taken in the afternoon of 10th
August 2000 and is a shot looking from the middle of the carrot
patch up towards the house. Please note the four standards of
"Waveney Sunrise" standing to the right with the pots inserted
into heavy pieces of clay pipe, I will be entering the best of these in
this years Ashfield Show on Saturday 12th August 2000 in an attempt to win
a prize. Wish me luck.
Another photograph that was taken in the afternoon of 10th
August 2000 and is of the two large plants of "Star of
Pink" that I am growing for this years Moorgreen show. The plants are
now coming into flower and, given the right weather conditions, they
should be in full flower for the show on the 27th of August 2000.
