Independence Day?

Posted: Yesterday at 21:59

Well what a shambles.   We are out of the European cup as I guessed we would be.      I should have  had a bet on them going out, at least I could have bought some plants with my winnings.     

Independence Day?

Entertaining though isn't it Lou !!!   

What with the footie, Wimbledon then the Olympics and of course Politics.   Well !!!!    I don't have any time for gardening until at least October.     

Lets not fight between ourselves.   What's done is done.   History has been made and can't be undone.

Aym.   That plant is a Phacelia.   I grew it last year, the insects love it.   It is a green manure and you just broadcast it to enrich the soil, but I like it because it attracts lots of bees and insects.     Some of it has come back this year.  

That first picture of a dahlia is splendid.   What is it called Aym ?  I would like one. Love that yellow cacti, it's petals look like tissue paper.

All lovely pics on here as per.

Tabitha.    A very tidy and very pretty garden.  Lush.  I love your greenhouse.   Thanks for sharing . 

SHEPS.   You've put in a lot of work there.   Love your Terracotta pots.   You will have lots of colour when they all 'kick off'.    What did you plant in the pots SHeps ?  

Wish me luck

Below is a picture of a fir tree.   I don't k ow it's name but it is growing at a rate of knots and will soon be to big for my tiny back yard.    I have been told that I will kill it if I prune it.   Is this true ? If not when can I prune it and how ?

Beautiful flowers EVERYONE.    Love that pale pink rose.    

Philippa.   Your Passion flower is amazing.   Enlarged it's like something from outer space.   All our gardening lives we have known what certain flowers look like, but every year I'm still amazed at how beautiful they are.   

Niobe.   A cheap one from Lidl.

Same plant, twisted around a small 

apple tree.  

Fuschia, Picarde, £2 Morrisons. 

It has grown 6 fold in a few weeks.

I don't know of any plant or flower that will have year long scent.   You could grow several as you already are, that throw out their scent at different times.   

SArcoccoca is a wonderful scent throughout winter.   I bought one last year.  

How about going on the thread My perfume garden by Happy Marion ( you can post it in them search box at the top,p of the page)  I'm sure she has a host of ideas for you and would only to be happy to help.

KAi-63.    Meant to say it will be Zaluzianskya OVATA  that you will want.   

I can't recall who posted about it but here is a picture.

You beat me to it Alan, I have 5 of those on order from Hayloft Nurseries.    

They were talked about on the forum and I couldn't resist.  

They grow in poor soil and stay quite small but with a knock out scent at night.   Common name Night Phlox.  

KAi-63 take a look and see if it's what you might be looking for.      I can't wait for them to arrive.
