They are in dappled shade, perhaps the summers here are just too hot and dry, though I do water the beds.

Winter work on moss?

My lawn is too wet, I'm leaving it until spring when I'll use moss killer and fertiliser.

I have 2 Bergenia in different places from different sources, one really old, the other is about 3 and neither has ever flowered. Don't know why. The leaves aren't very big either.

So pretty Marion. My snowdrops aren't really out yet. Nothing is. The daphne has pink buds though, it's new, haven't had one before. Looking forward to smelling it. What are the pink flowers in your vases?

You have a lovely garden puncdoc, send as many as you can! I love looking at people's photos. About time we had some from Verdun.

Actually didn't rain today! Forecast is heavy rain tomorrow.

plant spacing rules in border, for different plants

I would do as already said and plant the herbs in pots, I have sage, thyme and oregano in pots so I know it works.

I would search Google and gardening books for herbaceous perennials that don't mind heavy soil. When it's dry enough then dig in plenty of compost and rotted manure. My veggie garden was clay and after years of digging in rotted horse manure it's now more loam than clay.

£60 sounds a lot, was it being coloured too? I hate going to the hairdresser, usually cut it myself using my folding wardrobe mirrors to se the back. When I go to hairdresser I'm never pleased with it and when I do it myself friends say it looks nice.

I love my car, red Renault Megane Estate but it's the de Lux version, got it 2nd hand. It carries everything I want it to in the back and it has great acceleration and road holding.

Are French Marigolds still in 'Vogue'?

I love French Marigolds in pots or in the veg garden, bit bright for the flower garden though. I plant lots that I grow from seed all around the tomatoes and beans, makes the veg garden pretty as well as keeping aphids away.

fixing fleece / closches

Posted: 31/01/2014 at 11:06

I don't attach it to the wire arches, drape it smoothly over them and then pin the fleece to the ground using either tent pegs or special metal hooks for that sort of thing, sold also for pinning down weed suppressant fabric. I suppose you could use clothes pegs!
