My Bristol Garden in 2015

Posted: Yesterday at 18:45

Hello flumpy   what beautiful flowers you have. I like the sweet peas, lovely colour. They look like mine

  er, no they don't     but it took so long to upload the photo we can compare them   . Have a good weekend.

Thank you Marion  I know what you mean. After seeing your friends tiny garden and the wealth of blooms he has I'm inspired to look again at mine and plan more climbers by the neighbouring fence. 

Looking around my eye was caught with more plants which bloom time and again almost unnoticed

^ the easpalier apple survived the upheaval of the new fence being erected. The workmen were so considerate, they even  moved a fence post " an inch to your left, left a bit" were the comments I heard. There will be apple pie when the next job needs doing!  

A relaxed evening of watering the plants is in order - restores the spirit.

Enjoy the weekend

Good morning  what a lovely catch up on here. Gardens blooming beautifully! 

Such a busy month:  family visits - always good to see them as we are quite spread out: quality time   . Both garden and allotment growing nicely

  Bright cloudy day and more weeding to do   but easier after the rain  Hoping to visit Stockton Bury gardens later.

 Enjoy your gardens  

Gardening by the Moon

Where is my thinking !? Don't answer that !  Tagetes now transplanted, leaves scrushed and scattered on red cabbage (suffering from grey fly) . So busy 'watching ' the moon  : forgetting the companion plants. 

Noticed that my second planting of peas looked happier planted on a fruit day, as do sprouts and broccolli for waiting for the root day ( protected from the wind).

No tips as yet, still getting to grips with the recommended concoctions 

Thanks for this thread, always good reading.

My allotment plot is on clay, even digging it over and adding manure there were  still lumps: which broke down nicely thanks to the rain of the last few days   . Now to weed the garden. One happy gardener here!


New allotment OMG...

GWRS, if it's a yellowish staining could be a virus    neighbouring plotter has it on  her pak choi, foliar fed with diluted seaweed but finally took them out. Seem to be several virus' on here this year.

Wow! congratulations GWRS and OH     what a team!

A really busy time this month but efforts on plot worth it

 had early starts to avoid the heat and to-ing and fro-ing on rainy days to weed, plant out and stake things up. Not forgetting my very first harvest of mange tout   




Now to catch up properly

I'm in the  west midlands for weather but close to the Welsh border for the wet, windy weather.

Too hot last week, evening watering, the corn shot up, red cabbage looks good. Suprised the netting didn't collapse under the heavy rain. The garden needs weeding, lawns edged and to be cut, so an early start tomorrow - before more rain.

 Just called in plot today - mangetout, dwarf beans, purple podded peas, red cabbage and soft fruit growing sell  

Now waiting for a 'window of time' to plant out bulb fennel, beetroot, spinach , sprouts and broc.   


I'll be taking more photos and will enjoy reading about what you've all been doing - apart from keeping cool!!
