The thin areas were caused by me scarifying! The lawn wasnt too yellow, just needed an overall good raking to let air and water in to the roots.
Thankyou for watching my video - I am Esther

Lovely garden Diddy, but boy am I glad it's you that has to water all those pots and not me!
It's very easy to do take just about half an hour to water, even when it rains,as the foliage is like a parasol over the roots. the OH thinks i'm bark raving mad,But then as i have said in another thread of mine is,she would kill a plastic plant.USELESS!!!!!!!!.
Wow Lilylouise thats a fabulouse garden it looks like you have to put lots of time in to it each year,and i bet your greenhouse is constantly full.It would have to be to keep on top of everything,but its a credit to you both Pam.
What time of the year do you start your bedding and baskets off and do you use heat in the greenhose?If so which form of heat do you use and what did you find the cheapest?Lilylouise.
Thankyou for your kind comment Diddy
I keep one of my greenhouses frost free over the winter -I have a thermostatically controlled electric fan heater -with a paraffin one just in case.
I am just finishing taking cuttings of Marguerites,trailing Geraniums,Felicias,Brachycombe,Plectranthus,scented Geraniums etc.etc.etc -about 30 trays plus loads of pots.
i start sowing seeds in mid February and plant my baskets up in April. I buy plugs of Begonias,Petunias and Blue Salvias and grow Cosmos and Ageratum from seed.
Have you used the seed swap thread Pam or have you put up a list of what you may have.
That front garden must take ages to sort out and plant.What compost and feed do you use and how often do you feed.
Dont be ashamed of your garden, everyone starts some where.There are also some great people on here that can give you ideas on planting etc.My garden has been ongoing for over 11 years and you are realy never finished in your garden anyway,there is always room for improvement/
Certainly need that umbrella today Dave, I look like a drowned rat...
Awe!!!!! have you been out in all that nasty weather? what have you been doing?

i wouldnt of thought that is was a problem with the wall there,love the chucks did you hatch them your self?.sorry i didnt me that you sat on them yourself lol.
I love the sunflowers,Have you got any seeds from the seed swap?
you have a good size garden dont you Em?I could do loads with that much space.
It's about 30ft long. I don't hatch the chooks myself (;) ) I get them from auction and local breeders. The sunflowers were bought as seedlings from the local car boot - £1 for 12. Wish I'd have planted them further apart, didnt realise there were multiple flower heads on each plant. Hope they produce seed, I'd be happy to send you some
that would be nice of you Emma,they do produce seed.
the garden wall,is it always in shade? if so i could send you some hosta seed.
No that's 'her' wall. It's always sunny on my side lol
Ah I suppose she complains because my garden isn't ordered, with rows of plants standing in straight lines. Since when did straight lines occur in nature? I prefer it natural
rightly so em,i used to have a mate that used to plant tulip 1 every 6" apart,i used to lagh my sock of over it.
