Hello and a Plant Question ... Agapanthus

I think what aggys hate is cold, wet feet; they like good drainage.

My garden is a jungle

Hello Donna. Is that tree a weeping willow? If it is, how far is it from your neighbour's house and yours (I'm assuming that your house is semi-detached) Some trees, especially weeping willows are very thirsty/greedy feeders and can damage the foundations. If it has already cracked a drain and your neighbours are pleading poverty, then I would apply to the Council for help. Also are the neighbours the owners, or tenants?

Reviving an old slightly tired garden

Posted: 24/09/2014 at 11:31

What a lot of hard work; it's going to look brilliant. I like the fact that it is simple blocks/areas and not fiddly. I'm slightly puzzled about the shallow raised area on the decking with lights in and a planter each side. Is it for sitting on?

Any wine makers out there?

DavidM, I used that link you posted, but all measurements are in old money; especially temperatures, I'm sort of geared to metric and centigrade these days.

Trip to Cambridge University Botanical Garden 11th October

Posted: 24/09/2014 at 11:11

I want to go to Lynford Arboretum near Thetford Forest as I want to find out about their composting methods. I'm thinking about going on October 5th so that I can meet the Thetford Forest Volunteers who run the place, to pick their brains when they have their tea break at 10.30 a.m. If anyone wants to meet up there, just let me know.

There are other Sundays I could go instead.

Any recomendations for a garden to visit

Posted: 23/09/2014 at 12:09

...forgot to say, it is 9 acres, but NOT Bluebells, more woodland with rare trees and shrubs plus 'sensational Autumn colour'.
