HELP! Something is growing on the terracotta Pot!

Posted: 27/11/2015 at 09:39

I can confirm what pansyface says. Big old terracotta pots in gardens often have that white deposit on them. A lot of people like them like that, gives them an antique character look.

Morning all.

Punkdoc, I lost my wedding ring on a gravel path when gardening. I'd lost weight at the time. My daughter found it 2 years later!

Frosty, -3°, sun shining through the mist. Maybe I'll get out in the garden this afternoon.

Tomorrow I'm going to Bergerac for a meeting, then in the evening OH's choir is having a Christmas sing-a-long with fish and chips. Tomorrow we are going to lunch with friends after church. Won't have much time to come on here.

I like deciduous too, but it won't hide the horrible wall in winter.

Thank you for all your kind comments. I suppose, that having lived here so long, I was sort of defending the French! But when I visit gardens in England I'm always amazed by their beauty. That is a bit of my garden, it won't fit in the photo, it is quite hard work though.

There are some blue irises, 2 sorts, and a clematis MultiBlue.

I would go for evergreen, Choisya, Eleagnus Gilt Edge or Euonymus.

It will be in May. Here is a photo of part of my friend's garden, her main herb bed (not open day) and also a photo of my garden on the day that it opened when the Cecile Brunner climbing rose was coming out.

I've been outside too, taking the summer annuals out of 14 pots on the kitchen terrace and adding some fresh compost. Will plant up with pansies etc. tomorrow.

Al those who are worried about Verdun - he is still posting on the gardening threads. Has posted today. Probably just doesn't feel like chat at the moment.
