1st I love your forum name.
2nd thanks for the advice. I had geraniums in a couple of large tubs- very seccessful but not really to my taste, so they are out. I have several pelegoniums coming along slowly and Regal that has donated several cuttings.
The Galliardi and Tulips planted in pots late last year were a great success as was the apple tree planted last month.
The little rockery has been the best part of the garden. I bought in sedums and saxifrage and other alpines and they have settled in and made themselves at home. I am so impressed that come winter/spring I intend to plant up lots of individual pots as an alpine display outside the gh.
Apart from developing my gardening skills I really need to develop patience. It's the frustration of not really knowing what I am doing that annoys.
Still- I am reminded that the man who never made a mistake never made a damn thing.
PS I planted several ferns in the border. They seem to be manageing but the Maidenhair gave up the ghost. Could I grow this in the GH under the staging( No direct sun until late evening)?
