What's the star in your garden right now

Posted: 20/09/2014 at 18:35

I particularly liked Verdun's last photo.

Sorry Clare, that didn't work. Did you use the oak tree icon, follow instructions and wait for each stage. Takes a bit of time.

Lovely tree

The weather was lovely, it went well. Those are Google pics though, I don't have one. Seen them in other people's gardens. Looking at your leaves I'm not sure that they aren't something else. Was that the tree I saw in your garden?

Plant now or in spring?

I did as Lyn, prepare ground, dig in compost in autumn, plant in spring. But if you have small plug plants in little pots then pot them on into bigger pots.

Rose garden mixed with edible fruits share same bed safe?

It should be fine, some people grow climbing roses up old apple trees. But you say you are worried about planting edible crops near fertiliser, so do you mean will the fertiliser make the apples inedible? That doesn't happen, the plant or tree uses the fertiliser for it's food but it doesn't poison it's crops for us to eat. If anything, the apples will be bigger and better.

Happy birthday Lily. Bit late but I have the excuse of the Church BBQ!

 

gardeners world theme tune

I loved the older theme tune too. Wish they hadn't changed it. 9.30pm is really late here in France, it's 10.30pm.

Plant catnip plant outside in Spring or Autumn?

Posted: 20/09/2014 at 17:40

By catnip do you mean Nepeta Cataria, the true catnip, a herb, or do you mean the more commonly grown catmint Nepeta Mussinii or the bigger Fassinii? I haven't grown the Cataria, but I have the other two which are perfectly hardy. It looks big enough to plant out, leaving the foliage to die in the winter and cutting it off in spring.

Just as I thought, all back to front!

 I expect they will be in the wrong order, photos always seem to be in a different order to how I put them nowadays.

 And these are the flowers.

 

 

I saw a tree in your garden I thought could be a liriodrendron (tulip tree) because of the flowers, but I think they were nearly over. These are what the leaves look like.

 

Does anyone know what this is?

Well that confirms it for me - Honesty.
