Plants for new border

Posted: 10/03/2014 at 20:43

I saw all the piccies of Hellebores on here and couldn't resist getting a couple.  We went to Wimpole Hall for the day in the lovely sunshine and they had plants on sale. £7.00 each. 


Tracey your piccies are great. 

Since joining GW forum,I have been overwhelmed with all the support & advise

I didn't make cake, but I made soup to go with that lovely loaf of bread. 


I agree with everyone. Great forum for info, a laugh etc. I particularly like the photos.

Planting for cut flowers

Posted: 10/03/2014 at 20:16

Hi. I would also like to grow cut flowers and am going to set aside a patch at my allotment.  So far my ideas are Cosmos, I like purity which is white, delphinium, salvia (cant remember exact type)  Dwarf sunflowers,  sweet peas. Dahlias. Any other ideas greatfully received. X  I have loads of seeds ive collected over the last few months and will just try a few of each.

Still have lots to do too. New plot on allotm

ent  to tidy up. Mainly digging over ready for next spring. Probably going to put potatoes on much of it next spring.


I want to redesign my back garden too, work on making the borders more interesting. OH made me a new raised bed this summer which worked out great so I'm inspired to do more.

Most of the above for me too. New plot on the allotment needs refencing so OH to help with that. He's just built me a two bay composter at the weekend. The rest of it needs digging over completely as the previous tenants hardly touched it for months. have made a good start though.

May try and redesign the back garden a little and plan it to have more colour next year. Large apple tree also needs pruning. I have still got 4 clematis to go in but can't decide where to put them.

Will also refer to seeds catalogues.
