Did I say ivy?? - brain dead after trimming ivy in my garden. I meant HOLLY!

Or maybe I was getting in the mood for Christmas

Holly really does work. Deters squirrels too.

Sprinkle ivy or pyracantha twigs over surface. Remove them when plants big enough to cats to lose interest

Found a bag of sprouting tulip bulbs. Is it worth planting them? They seem quite firm.

Will they flower next year?

Bare roots perennials - can I put them straight in the border?

Put them in pots for a while so that you can keep an eye on them. You are also less likely to lose the juicy young shoots to slugs etc

I put my osteospermums in the porch over winter and they have survived  but have got a bit leggy.

Can I prune them? If yes- how?

Help! I'm having problems with my Bay Tree

If you get the bugs again, stick your finger over the end of hose and spray them off with a jet of water.  Cut off any curled leaves.

Thanks all. There is always a place in my garden for 'weeds' - unless they don't know who's boss!
