Fidgetbones I got a bag of daff 5kg from Lidl for a fiver x2 for the station 1 planted still one to go yet great load for what is spent
Been out in garden nice and sunny today planting out a few plants white campion, lemon grass and dierama guinevere grass and putting up home made plant support for the asters/ daisy
Also filled up the garden waste bin with lots of the pampas grass from the garden - cleared a bit of ground still lots to go yet
Found this moth in the flower bed ended up walking up my jumper
Also found two moth pupae
indoors trying to sort out my bug box
Panda saw mrsg's plant..... Want one!!!! Lmao....
Good one 4thPanda and Stacey like the plant too
I think it is Calocephalus Silver Sand: http://www.unwins.co.uk/calocephalus-silver-sand-plants-pid5560.html . What do you think Mrs G et al?
Get me one get me one ...... Another one for the dear Santa list!!!
i'm impressed Panda, how did you find it?
Had a read and think its needs too much TLC for my talents at the moment...but at £2, if it lasts indoors it'll look good for xmas...3 in a row with tiny red baubles
Thanks too Gardengirl but I think Panda wins this one x
I have googling skills par extraordinaire! (google image search on silver plants)
Do I get a prize? Maybe one of the plants?!
when i return to buy them i will post a picture, hows that for a prize?
omg now I really want one
Hello folks home, fed, watered and also cut OH's hair - now I'm almost asleep - why does work make me tired? You don't have to answer that .............
Calocephalus silver sand is something we can grow well down here. Perfect in a very hot dry wall
Am I first? Got lots of tidying up done and repotting of bits and pieces. Put some Allium sphaerocephalon into pots with the Verbena bonariensis I grew from seed so they'll go in a new raised bed next year. Lots of deadheading done but the sweet peas still doing their best. Prepared the shuttering for the step at the gate which I'll concrete tomorrow - weather permitting. Now awaiting dinner.
I've picked apples and plums, and cut up a tray of windfalls for freezing.
Fish and chips for tea, I've not got time to cook.
Evening all. Work all day and rain when come home from work so not even a tour of the garden managed
Steak and Kidney pud for tea - just right for a dull rainy evening!
Am hoping for a nice evening one night soon so I can pick the quince left on the tree (windfalls coming thick and fast!)
Scary day tomorrow Have an appointment with a Psychiatrist to assess what the best course of treatment will be for me. Am visiting The Priory - will let you know if I spot any celebs
Bit of a far fetched way to get amongst the rich and famous panda, but good luck, hope all goes really well and positively for you. don't forget your autograph book. The circles we gardeners move in eh...
