Oh Airwaves I'm sorry to hear about your accident, all the best for a full recovery x

I will keep everything crossed for you that your husband is being a good and obedient under gardener.  Maybe he could take pictures for you especially the ones you can not see out of your window as in my experience his idea of dead heading is probably different to ours 

Please visit this thread often and update us how you are doing xx

Re the spindle- that's very encouraging Airwaves and I shall step up the watering. It's leaves are all yellow but havent dropped about 4 weeks after replanting.

Hope all is well after your op and you make a full recovery

Thank you



No problem If you lived nearby I'd have given you a spare plant of mine lol 

Beaus Mum

Aww that's kind of you  Can't you move?!! 

Thank you  NGCARDS, H.T Deep Secret, on my list. I can feel another plan emerging for extending a border  


Yes Airways,  do keep in touch  at best you will be entertained and not least the under gardener will know we are watching  scary eh! 

All best wishes


Bizzie B, yes Herefordshire is lovely place and not too far away either, we are practically neighbours indeed. Thanks for the Leucanthamum info, I am going to start googling asap to get some on order for my back garden borders. And, I want the Dianthus Crimson Rim too, they are so pretty. Oh dear, I can feel a budget blowing garden order coming on, hope MrT is sitting down!!!

My pic of my newly shaped berberis, I lost count of how many times the thorns attacked me and went through my gloves. Nevermind, should last for another 6 months, hopefully.



Hehe glad I have influenced some people's wish lists!

Beaus Mum

Well worth the pain mrst, looks lovely

Enjoy your spend up!  I haven't had a look yet but hoping they do the crimson rims as plugs So I can be greedy and have lots 

I just had a look and they have the option of 10 plugs for 17.99 if I remember rightly
Beaus Mum

Oh thank you ngcards, is that expensive for plugs? Never brought them like that before but gardeners on this forum have inspired me to try different things and I'm useless with seeds!

I think it's a reasonable price for these considering you can't get them anywhere else, but it's up to the individual I think

That's a neat piece of topairy work MrsT, looks good  

 Not sure if I can take so much off mine but must at least trim it back.



Tackling the Philodendron tomorrow, at the side of the house (but seen from the front!),  it needs some of the larger and older branches taking out. They make good 'pea canes' for staking plants. Photo just came out on its side so will have to crop it and re post.





Hi Folks, back from a spa day and just catching up on a few threads, BizzieB did you say you lived on the welsh/hereford border?  Im reading a great book at the moment called Meadowland (the private life of an english field) its by John Lewis-Sempel who is a farmer on the Hereford side of the Welsh Border.  Its a year in the life of the field and all the creatures that live there,  its absolutely fascinating and beautifully written if anyone is keen on wildlife and the countryside its well worth a look at.  The Escley River runs by the field, its close to Haye on Wye.  Thought it might be in your neck of the woods. 


 That's better, the tree in front is a hazel, the Philodendron had masses of flowers this year and their scent filled the gateway there! looked up and was amazed

 sadly finished flowering a few weeks ago.












  our posts crossed Yvie.

What a coincidence! Don't know the river as not that close to Hay but have noted the book, sounds a good, I check it out.

Oops battery going, hence the odd spaces!  have to recharge, speak later.


Beaus Mum

ngcards if you think it's reasonable then I agree  I'm def gonna order 

Hi Yviestevie, hope you had a lovely day at the spa 

Bizzie the side of your house looks lovely, it's like a romantic walkway and bet it smelt lovely when the philodendron was out 

Beaus Mum

Bizzie is it a philodendron , I just copied you and went with the iPad predictive text 

 Oops! done it again! It's a Philodelphus.   I think Philodendron is a fern.  Close!  lol

Cool this morning so an early start - heigh ho!  

Beaus Mum

 You are having an early start! Have a lovely day
