bird nest in potato bag

Posted: 12/06/2014 at 20:14

Sadly there is no bird sitting on the eggs; don't know enough about this to figure out if nest is abandoned.

What have you learnt this year in the garden?

Good luck Mike Hope all goes well for you.

I taught myself how to do green/soft cuttings for the flooded gardens appeal; then went to youtube and watched some videos on it and blow me down, I was doing it right! My next challenge will be to take some hardwood cuttings, which will take much longer to develop. I also want to have a go at 'Tufa' - fake stone containers when I have the time.

But mostly I have learnt how incredibly generous the forum members have been, sowing and growing plants for Somerset gardens and looking out for members who have been unwell

I find that once a delphinium is established, the slugs and snails don't bother it.

Maureen, I think it is something about 'Blooms' but I could be wrong; it is mentioned somewhere in this thread or the other one; but that could be a long trawl

Perhaps just look at all Rosie31's posts?

FLAG is definitely the Charity that collects and distributes plants.

 Clematis orange peel entwined with mock orange, it takes my breath away every time I see it
