Help for flooded gardens

A sunny morning bump to you all

Hedging advice pls

Posted: 21/03/2014 at 09:22

If it does not have to be completely solid, how about some Compassion roses or other climbers. Also Clematis; there is a huge variety, some evergreen.

Tree advice pls

Hi New G, may I suggest that you look at 'pleached trees' on google and see if that is the effect that you need. Then report back here and I'm sure you will get lots of advice on how to do it

Verdun, is it Nepeta Walker's Low that you are thinking of?

Garden design - help, we're stuck!

I'm not really getting a feel for the area from what you have given us. Is there a terrace behind the Barn, which I assume is your house?

Could we see a pic from end of garden looking back at the house? Possibly a pic from a high window?

I am so glad that it is all working so well

Jeannie, don't overdo it will you?

I have nothing large enough yet to be moved and planted out, but will have soon I hope.

A lot of people do this kind of thing in an old, shallow ceramic or stone sink/trough. Sedums and alpines I would imagine are the things to plant. The effect can be very attractive.

Cosmos seedling problem

Posted: 20/03/2014 at 17:55

Quite a few of my seedlings have done this too; the tomato newsletter that I get suggests a drop of water issued via a pipette, but frankly, the seed casing will fall off soon anyway

Here we go again.
