BARNSDALE GARDEN TRIP.

Yesterday was Compost master's Conference; today a Compost Event just North of King's Lynn, so have not been able to come onto the forum. Glad so many people took pics of the gardens; they were pretty wonderful. BusyB, am so pleased you have ordered Lady Hamilton Rose, I loved the bronze foliage. Am trying to figure out where I could fit her in

Thank you all for such a wonderful day.

Ooh yes! We do love new garden projects. Good luck with it and I agree; get the lawn under control and then the whole area will look much larger. The you can figure out what shape you want your garden to have. Regard it as a 1,2 or 3 year project, before you achieve your goals.

 ...and here is the group, again thank you all for a lovely day. Seeing the Herbaceous Borders made me feel much better about mine, which are in the fairly untidy cottage style. Veg beds were immaculate (must get weeding next week)

Green M, I know what you mean and it is so frustrating sometimes to not know just how much TLC to give a plant

Removing leaves from unknown bulbs

In my experience, they self seed prolifically; though they are easy to pull up if you don't want them in that location. Some Nasturtium seeds now say on the packet; Flowers stand above leaves, as with some the flowers can hide behind the leaves. They are prone to being attacked by Cabbage White Butterflies, that is a good reason for planting them near Cabbages and other Brassicas as they deflect the butterfly's attention away from your food crops
