Creating a wildflower garden



  • Hi Nutcutlet,

    That would be great thank you! I'm not very well-up on computer matters

    I'm afraid, so if you think you could guide me through what to do I would

    be very grateful. Would you need my email address for this?

    I think a lot of gardeners must have had disappointments this year as it

    was such a poor Spring, but thanks to your advice, I now have a lovely

    show of poppies, cornflowers and corn marigolds, which with your help, I will be

    able to post photos of here.

    I'll start with a pic

    So that's what annual quaking grass looks like - I have lots of it in one of my flower beds, but sadly none anywhere near my meadow !  Maybe I should turn my borders into meadows and plant  a few garden plants in the field that is pretending to be my meadow !!

    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.

    Hi WaF,

    collected my Cowslips green yesterday and sowed. I could only face 240 plugs, sounds a lot but won't go very far will do more tonight. Most were still green, a few and ripened so you'd need to get out pretty sharpish where you are to get green seed.

  • Hi Nutcutlet - Just to let you know I'm still alive and kicking!!! I am really

    sorry I am such a nincompoop when it comes to doing things online and

    although I have read all your PM which you kindly sent me, for the life of

    me I can't get a message to you. I have typed in your nickname and what

    the subject is about, but when I try to type my message to you it just won't

    work - I can't type in a single word and I've tried everything.!! On top of that

    I don't have the little green tree logo you mention anywhere, so I can't click

    on it. I've emailed the gardenersworldforum help team, but they haven't yet

    got back to me to tell me where it's disappeared to. To be honest - I don't

    ever remember having it since I joined GWF. Sorry to go on.....just wanted you

    to know I'm grateful to you for your help and I'll get back to you as soon as poss.
  • Hi Jim,

    Will have to get out into the countryside and see what I can find.

    Otherwise I'll use the firm you kindly recommended to me and buy them!

    Will let you know!

    there should be a reply box under the message WaF.

    Haven't you got a tool bar above the box you type in with smilies and spellcheck etc. It's always referred to as a tree. I thoughtit was a green wine glass for a long time, just a bit short in the stalk


    There's instructions on another thread re picture posting. Done by Blackest who is approximately 1000 times more computer literate than me. Maybe more

  • Hi Nutcutlet,

    No - I don't have any of the things you mention above,

    in fact I don't think I've ever had them thinking back!

    I've also tried "Blackest" as you suggest, but when

    I click on the link he/she has posted I get a message

    saying that there's an error and it won't work. I think

    I must have a lot of gremlins running around on my

    laptop! In desperation I've contacted [email protected]

    and asked them to try to get my toolbar back for me!

    Good idea, I wouldn't know where to look if mine disappeared

    I found lots of wild carrots germinating in the bald bits of field today. Very pleasing. The bald bits are down to a mix of yellow rattle and mowing the tops off large ants nests.

    I j hope you get the gremlins sorted, It's very frustrating when something only half works
