Potted plants for winter?

Posted: 26/08/2014 at 09:32

Just got; Hebe Green Globe x2, Winter pansies and 2 Heucheras to re-do some pots that were looking uninspired.

Look up super tufa on youtube, it will tell you how to do it

No longer receiving email notifications

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 20:09

I haven't had email notifications since Spring 2013. I've spoken to the techy people; they got them back briefly, then they vanished again. I use a laptop and all the right bits are in place, so I kind of assumed that no one was getting them.

It would be very useful to have them back again.

Two plants that I need IDing.

Just looked that Aster up; the Prostratus version is really stunning.

Rude but funny.

Is the French for 'small man' 'omelette'?

For small formal shapes, you could consider Hebes as well. Whatever you get check on final height/spread; you don't want to be spending a fortune a few years down the line with a tree surgeon

Doesn't it get dark early?!

Growing vegetables in the driveway with cars

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 09:45

My lovely neighbour in London was worried about this as we were only a mile or two from Hogarth Roundabout, which is supposed to be one of the busiest in Europe. He was a member of the RHS and had a soil test done, presumably testing for levels of lead etc., and found that the soil was safe.

I suggest a barrier between cars and veg; a 1.5 metre trellis with something dense like winter flowering jasmine growing up it.
