Proffessional garden design - worth it?

Posted: Yesterday at 22:27

Perhaps you could do your own research, spend the money you've saved on plants and let your garden evolve. You will make mistakes and some will be pleasant surprises, but it will be your own garden.

Stuck my bare do it roses in a bucket of water three days ago. In attack of hubris, I thought that I would pot them up the next day. It was cold and I'd gone off the boil.. This morning, I decided to do the decent thing, went to get them out of the bucket and discovered they were frozen solid. I considered using a hair dryer, but put them in the porch instead. By late afternoon, they'd thawed out and I managed to get them out of the bucket.They've been planted in  pots temporarily.

If they survive, I'll put them in the ground in the spring. I wish I'd left them safely in the box!

The road to he'll is paved with good intentions.

With regard to the law of clothes shopping if buying for OH, you select a maximum of two items:

"Here, try these on. That looks great. You go and pay for it.I'll just have a look around. Meet you back at the car."

I liked Sean Bean in Sharpe, but he's gone to seed now I'm afraid. I shall transfer my affections elsewhere when I get round to it.

Can I trim a bit more off the roots so they fit better in their temporary pots?

MU : some bloke in a pub in Ireland gave OH the puzzle last week so I doubt there'll be any more - unless that bloke is a GW lurker

Well done MU

How did you do it -algebra -guesswork?

What's this 'indeterminate'? If you have a bunch of things you can't define then the definition lacks definition.
