Any ideas what to do with this patch?

It's probably too late now, Philip, this thread dates from July.


I have had dogs and daffodils. My dogs have lived long and not touched the daffodils.

It's so cloudy here I don't think we'll see the supermoon. Bit chilly too, was only 7° this afternoon while I was gardening.

My dahlias are in the ground too, apart from 20 that I grew from seed and planted in 2 troughs. I dug them up today, now drying off upside down. They had developed good tubers. I've added more compost to the troughs and planted bellis daisies for the spring. I've emptied 2 more troughs of bedding begonias but can't plant the pansies yet because I've run out of potting compost.

Glad the site's back.


Not a good start to the day, Joyce, but hope the problem is solved now and it doesn't happen again.


I've actually managed to get out into the garden today, dug up the dahlias and begonias in troughs and re-planted - but couldn't finish because I ran out of potting compost. OH has swept up 6 big barrow loads of leaves from the kitchen terrace.

Using a SatNav is nothing to be ashamed of, Lesley, I often use one, very good in towns.


I hope, since we had before pictures, that we'll get after pictures from Obelixx, minus stripes!


Pat, we are often in bed at 8am and don't feel guilty.


We have just enjoyed a programme set in the war in Ireland. "My Mother and Other Strangers."

Does the budget run to cold frames for hardening plants off in?


You've done a great job and a nursery bed area can be really useful.

Clarice, your picture made me feel all funny! Pepsi looks exactly like my Border Collie cross, Meggie, who we moved to France with in 1985. She lived to be 16 yrs.
