woman found unconscious in front of his store, and to
find out what she was doing on Mesa Street, in El

We are now
into the middle of the month of May, it's been much warmer than usual this
year in the UK, and the plants are looking exceedingly good for the time of
year. As you can see from this picture the standards have a nice tight head
of green foliage. These particular ones are two plants of Herald to the left
of the picture, and two of Star Of Pink on the right. These plants have now
been stopped at least twice, and we will most likely be able to make another
stop and still have them ready in time for the shows. I have high hopes that
the two Star Of Pinks standards will do well this year.
is a picture are some standards that are stood amongst the conifers that I
have growing behind my greenhouse. I place them there because they aren't
as far forward as some of the others. Keeping them sheltered from the cold
and high winds will help them grow on faster. The pale one at the front is
Waveney Sunrise, a favourite of mine that I have been growing for many
years now, behind it are two plants of Hawkshead, this is a hardy fuchsia
with very small white flowers. We saw it growing in a friends garden and
told him that we thought it might make a good standard. He gave me
cuttings, and last year was spent growing the main stem and forming the
head, this year we will let it flower and see how it looks. Wish me luck
with it, I'm going to need it, it appears to drop it's leaves at the drop
of a hat.
shot is of the interior of the greenhouse and shows some geraniums and regal
pelargoniums that are growing in there. Most of the fuchsias are now outside
hardening off so it gives me a chance to bring on these plants, get
them flowering and ready for placing around the garden for decoration. When
summer comes I like to have most of the plants outside. I'm a big believer
in growing them hard, and when the frosts are past, all my plants go into
with questions or comments about this web site.
