daughters new garden

Posted: 23/06/2013 at 18:27

I did a makeover on my daughter's very narrow 2 1/2m wide garden a few years ago. It's grown a lot more now with bushier plants and roses on the arch.

 My daughter's garden is very shady especially on the left. I removed all the grass and weeds, dug it, added compost and organic fertiliser and re-sowed the grass. I made a zig-zag path to make it wider - but your daughter's garden is wider. You don't state the aspect or type of soil, which would be good to know when planning.

Just seen what Bob the Gardener said about Jeyes Fluid. They don't sell it in France and I have just bought some here. Does it upset polycarbonate greenhouses? That's is what I bought it for - to clean my pc greenhouse.

Morning all. I rather like lysimachia punctata (yellow) as it reminds me of my childhood. Also the deer don't eat it. I love rosebay willowherb, but not in the garden. A few years ago we went up a mountain in the alps on a little train and the countryside was pink with it. It looked so pretty.

I love Pashley Manor, Merriments and Nymans too. Been to Pashley and Merriments several times as my mother used to live in Battle. She's no longer with us now. May go to Pashley if we have time. OH has never been.

I've found that Morning Glory does like a feed, but they also like warmth.

 The roses weren't out yet at Hever although it was their rose week - weather again.

The day after Great Dixter we went to Hever Castle. The castle is more like a beautiful, comfortable Tudor manor house inside and the gardens are lovely. There are mini gardens, each with it's own character, down the sides of the big Italian garden.

For those who have just arrived on this site, I live in France and we are on holiday in England visiting gardens.

The oak tree link won't work so I'll leave this post and start again and see what happens.

Morning all. If anyone would like to see some photos of Great Dixter I've put them on Gardens we have Visited 2013  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/gardens-we-have-visited-2013/80843.html

Having a quieter day today, weather not good anyway.
