royal poinciana

Poincianas are flame trees that grow between 5 and 12 metres. They grow in tropical climates. Is that what you mean?

Need to replace what I think is box

Now that I've clicked on the photo and seen it closer up I agree with Blairs that it is not box. I think it's a euonymus. They can get damage from vine weevils but usually re-grow.

I'm lucky to have wild land as well as a formal garden. I trained my Border Collie not to wee or poo on the lawn in the garden area. Take him to a wild bit or out for a work and when he performs give lots of praise. Teach him the word "No" as soon as possible.

I agree with Dove, but leaning more towards the crab apple. Blossom in spring, fruits in autumn, right size for a front garden, variety of colours.

Morning all.
No particular plan for today. Could do more ironing sitting in front of telly, could hoover sitting room floor.

-3° this morning, but no frost, cold and grey. But warmer than yesterday when it was -8° with a frost.

HELLO FORKERS!

Don't let a certain person upset you KEF. Not worth it. Have another wine and enjoy your family gathering.

Whenever Mike posts like that it's always late and he's wallowing in self pity. Has he been drowning his sorrows? I lost my husband when I was 47 with 4 children at Uni and school. You just have to get on with it and life picks up. Do some voluntary work and think of someone else.

What decorative stone to use?

Posted: 29/12/2014 at 16:13

I don't think I understood what you meant by "decorative stone". Do you mean stone like gravel or chippings? I thought you meant paving stones. We have pea gravel (on a membrane to stop weeds) around OH's shed, looks good, cheap and easy to do.
