Would Choisya be any good? You can prune it too stop it being too big.

I have Vinca Minor under a conifer, doing fine. But do you really need anything under them? You could make island beds in the lawn and plant pretty perennials.

That is gorgeous. I don't have a tree peony, but here is what the RHS says about looking after it, pruning included.  https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=711

Could they have been talking about the variagated one? I have some as ground cover. It's a thug, but nothing like the weed one and mush prettier. Deer don't eat it so if you have deer it can be useful.

I have just written on Hello Forkers "Hello Forkers" is no longer on my followed threads. Wonder why? But I am now getting email notifications for the "Have you done any Gardening today" thread, no others though.


However, having written that post Hello Forkers is back on my followed threads. I had looked back over 3 days so it should have been there before.


I have changed my camera settings to take photos under 2 mb. I couldn't send photos around 5mb. I don't need them big anyway.

Going to Post Office to post tax return. Thank God it's done. Every year they change the forms and I have to fill in two, pink for English pension and blue for French. French tax is never deducted at source so everyone has to fill in the forms and pay tax bills.

Must sort out the strawberry bed today. It's full of bindwind that must have grown in from the paddock over winter. I'll probably have to give it up, like the asparagus bed.

Have planted out the tomatoes, 8 outside and 7 in the GH, and 6 sweet peppers outside. Dug manure and compost into the planting holes.

Hello all, gave up trying to get onto the site this morning so I've been in the veggie garden planting tomatoes and sweet peppers. Now must do my tax return, hate it.

Have planted 30 runner bean plants. Bit of a fiddle as they are in crosses cut in the weed suppressant fabric, but the ground was well prepared with manure before the fabric went down. Took longer than I thought.
