The mystery of my Verbena Bonariensis

Posted: 22/08/2014 at 21:54

Tomato seeds will survive a sewerage plant process!

Verbena Bonariensis in my garden, does not get re-cycled through compost, but simply self seeds with or without help from birds and insects. It means that come September I will dig out all this year's little seedlings and overwinter them in the g/h.

If it is a warmish winter, like last year, then this year's plants will keep going, but normally I lose them in a cold winter. So next spring the over-wintered seedlings will get planted out.

Bag the weeds!

Good idea LP

Which fruit for shade?

For some years I tried to grow rhubarb; only had success when I put it in dappled shade

OK, who's got it?

The problem with a lot of sheds is that from the outside, you can unscrew the hinges

I'm not a normally suspicious person, but neighbours warned me that garden furniture can be 'nicked' around here. So both of the benches are discreetly chained and padlocked to concrete fence posts

Those thieves definitely need cutting down to size. The owner should get a large dog to scarify potential thieves.
