It certainly thrives here in our well drained soil. Never had any trouble with it not survivng the winter either.

Something which looks nice in November

There are forms of Sorbus (Rowan) which stay around 1 m, and have lots of white berries.

Whoops that  did not work.

Vitax Yellow Sulphur is a reasonable fungicide for bulbs. Google it for Online suppliers.

I have been known to use this on bulbs for storing.

Possibly Liiriope spicata.

Hydrangea won't flower

Posted: 06/10/2013 at 10:36

Habe you pruned it? I ask only in that they flower next year on wood produced this year. So it is easy to prune off the flower buds. Here they never flowered as the flowering stems were always  destroyed by the wind in April.

Otherwise it is down to food and water.

Moles AND Crane flies

It does not help that the fields all round us are full of them as are the roadside verges. I counted over 100 hills in one small part of the field this afternoon. Only just been seeded with wheat too.

Seen more crane flies this year than ever before. There is so much recently ploughed land here that they rarely lay their eggs in the garden.

Does not work. They just dig a new run next to the one with the glass  in it. Our Damson Wood is on the site of an old household dump, they tunnel through that and bring up all sorts of glass and metal,
