Camera Corner

I thought that was strange, very green for February. I hope your garden is OK Ivyhouse, must be upsetting for you. Plants can be very resistant though.

Well done Camera Corner! I thought it was doughnuts and cream buns that Verdun was addicted too.

Tracey, I don't think you're a Newbie any more! You've done well over 750 posts. You're one of us gardeners.

Snap, but Dove's answer is better. Why does everything happen back to front? That smiley was after the answer and my photos are always back to front nowadays.

Chicky, I think they will be fine. Are they just the rhizomes or have they got leaves? The leaves can feed off the rhizomes until you get them planted. They sell them in sawdust in plastic bags here. Or are they bulb irises?

You could try growing climbers up obelisks, like clematis. They vary in price or you could make your own. Could you make a trellis if you can't afford one, or a pergola? If you could find some unwanted wooden posts and treat them with wood preserver, bang them in the ground and put wires between them you could grow climbing roses, clematis, honeysuckle. Make wigwams of canes and grow Morning Glory, climbing nasturtiums, more sweet peas - cheap and easy.

Plant a tree, like a rowan or a crab apple, not too big, unless you have a big enough garden to plant bigger trees. Make an island shrub bed with taller shrubs, choisya (evergreen), buddleia, philadelphus, deutzia etc.

I agree with punkdoc. Don't let us be pushed around.

I think people are worrying far too much. We know who we like on here, don't bother about those you think are troublemakers. The dog chap was unpleasant, especially for dog lovers, but what made you think he was Brumbull or a troll/WUM? The person posting about Monty and Twitter could just have been a slightly out of date Twitterer. He/she was a bit upset when people snapped at him/her. You are bound to get strange posters on a Forum, but don't get upset, just ignore it and chat to the people you like. There are a lot of likeable people here.
