Colourful plants to put in large plant pots/urns

Posted: 08/03/2013 at 16:45

Thankyou to Busy-Lizzie and Loveto garden the pictures are stunning. I have just been given a lovely stone pot and it is now ready for planting I wondered about a half standard tree with underplanting, has anyone tried this. The planting has to withstand very cold weather as I live in the north. Ideas would be welcome. My wish is for the pot to look attractive all year. Thank you inadvance for your help

Happy Christmas everyone and a good gardening year ahead!

Gardeners' Question Time

Posted: 30/09/2012 at 17:42

I llistened to the Anniversary of the first recording, edition today. It brought back many memories of those wonderful gardeners who have given us the range of their knowledge, in such an entertaining way over the years. Like others I have listened for a long time. I have learnt much and enjoyed the cheerful banter between the panel members and chairmen( only 8 since 1947). Long may it continue

Buying spring bulbs online

Posted: 24/08/2012 at 14:42

Mail order I have found to be good if you want named varieties are Pottertons, Broadleigh Gardens, Miniature Bulbs of Knaresborough, Pitcairn alpines, and Kevock Gardens, all of whom have web sitesAs others have said the supermarkets can be excellent and towards the end of season have stock reduced. As long as the bulbs are sound late planting will not be a problem

Hedge Ideas

Copper beech would indeed be a good choice, another possibility would be lonicera nitida. Maintainence is easy, the hedge is evergreen, or golden depending on the variety chosen, and is attractive all year. Unfortunately the leaves of holly have prickles but that I think makes a lovely hedge
