Where we are. the Big Map.

Posted: 29/08/2014 at 19:50

Looking at the map again, what I find weird is that there are huge swathes of the UK, with no members: apparently none in Northern Ireland, none in a large area between St Albans and to the far west of Oxford, few in some areas of Scotland and Wales (Alan 4711, I didn't realise you lived in Tenby; some of my favourite people live there)

Perhaps it is time we had a new map - maybe the lovely people who run this site could ask newcomers to position themselves on the map as it is hard giving gardening advice when you have no idea of the growing conditions. (...and I don't really mean me giving the advice)

My first 'yarden'

Lovely 'Yardan' especially like the office type chair, so you can work out there I know nothing about the condition that you have, but I fervently hope you will be well enough soon to make more gardens and post the pics here

Only popped out for a Mat.

I love the bird scarer; a farmer near here has 2 inflatable (I think) men in white holding what appear to be guns, but those birds of prey on long carbon rods are actually quite beautiful.

I believe these can be invasive, so keep an eye on it

Edging my lawn - what to do with the cuts?!

Posted: 29/08/2014 at 18:54

I enlarged a flower bed in the spring and though I know I should have stacked the turves to make wonderful loam, I just don't have the space for that kind of indulgence So I tore the pieces up and distributed them in the compost bin. The grass was not flowering or about to set seed, so the compost bin is fine.

Bekkie, I quite like that word you invented; 'crubly', it applies to several people I know

Shabby chic

BM , but I think I should change the name to 'Water Butt Cottage' It's impossible to take a pic without water butts I've got 4 of them as I know plants prefer rain water.

Hope the pics are of some use to Harriet.

Just look at this seed head

How lovely. Will you be putting it in the g/h?

I would email RHS about that.

Pretty but tough plants to secure boundary

I was thinking that you could keep your original plants and have the rope/chain and posts

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
