How to turn this dumping ground into gracious greenery...?

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 09:25

If you don't want to take up the concrete, you could use it for something else; a shed or raised beds or cover it with fake grass and a paddling pool? The more you improve the garden, the easier it will be to sell the house when you want to move on

Good luck with it and show us some pics as the work proceeds

Nut, of course - it was ARUM Italicum, but in there is a baby Solomon's Seal. (I'm always a bit vague about plant names; for about 20 years could never remember the name of Aubretia and in my head always referred to it as Anchovy)

Music in the Garden

rosemummy, I know what you mean about music on building sites; I worked on building sites for nearly 40 years and it has given me a loathing of most pop music; the worst time was in the US Virgin Isles, with 2 huge ghetto blasters, one each side of me, one playing Country and the other playing Rap!

Frank and O.L. I too love music, but my thing is singing; I'm a member of the local church choir, which is tiny, we are lucky if 6 or 8 people turn up for practice. But I've had this wretched cold since about 3rd of March, so couldn't sing. But today I found my voice again what joy! So hoovering the g/h while seedlings were outside sunbathing I was singing away from Handel to the Eagles.

Lizzie, how many times can I say this; you are a star

70 plants at the moment, am planning on quite a few more; they won't be big, but they will be viable. Am potting on loads now so that they are large enough to be planted out soon after they get to their destination.

My arm muscles are responding well to carrying everything out and in everyday from g/h and cons.
