Nut C; Oh my gosh I was at a big plant auction yesterday with a neighbour who wanted to fill gaps in her huge herbacious border and I am sure I saw what you are describing, but sadly did not write down the name as we were going for geums for the front of the border. But Uncle Verdun will know I am sure

Ooh yes, a name for the hellebore, it is so beautiful! Cheery PB, how about a competition for a name; you of course would be the judge.

Uncle Verdun can do anything. Even type in his sleep. I am a big fan of geums. I have a lovely orange one.

WEATHER this week

I sat out with lovely neighbours and had the first barbeque of summer this evening; ok we cooked out doors, and ate indoors, but we sat facing the sunset and enjoyed the heat. But have lit the heater in the greenhouse for the night.

Fairy girl (I've just come back from a party, so spelling may be a bit strange) I also, (sotto voce) do not like fuschias I have tried, I really have tried, but I still don't like them.

'F' stands for fritillary, foxglove and Fabulous gardens, which I'm certain everyone on this forum has or is making.

sanity in need of restoring

Posted: 17/04/2013 at 16:43

Bill, you have my sympathy, I started off with a sea of mud on a slope and had to get a small digger in, even so, I still come accross the odd sack of solid plaster or cement which has to be chiselled into bits that I can lift. The advice above is all good; gardens do take time. Perhaps for your sanity you could make a small area this summer which catches the evening sun and place a couple of garden chairs there so you can look at the garden and dcide what you want and in what order to do it. Good luck and it will keep you very healthy

Patio advice - replacing concrete

I think my builder used a jack hammer to break up a large area of cracked concrete and used it as a base for fake york stone slabs.

 Cardomom Short bread, slightly over-cooked as I got distracted. I think the carroway seed ones I made last week are the most impressive short bread I've ever made.
