What's the star in your garden right now

Liked alpines when we lived in Kent, there was a good GC for them nearby. I had a rockery and when the Gardeners Show was on in the village I used to do miniature flower arrangements in sea shells. Sometimes won!

What's the star in your garden right now

I don't do grasses either. Verdun won't be shocked, he knows already! Only one I like, a red pennisetum, died. I like flowers in flower beds.

Morning all. Mild (10°) and very wet here.

Enjoyed GW, but was surprised to see Monty digging up dahlias already. I thought they are supposed to be blackened by the frost to help close up the hollow stems.

Went to Keukenhof when I was 14, Easter family holiday, but Easter was early that year so wasn't as blooming as it should have been. It still made a huge impression on me.

Love reflections on water in photos.

Nice photos John, but, Verdun, I'm a lost cause. Don't think I will ever like grasses in flower borders.

Can't grow acers here either, hot summers, windy, cold winters and limestone.

Lovely, lovely photos, Fidgetbones.

A few pages ago Sarah asked about a yellow and orange flower. I think it was a Lantana.

Very weird, Stacey, could anyone have nicked it?

Please, not snow in November. I live down a farm track 1km long. Stuck when it snows. Going to England in Nov. Don't want to have snow when travelling.

I like Verdun's jokes too.

Autum /winter weeds

I use a hoe with a short handle and a head like in this photo. I kneel on a pad and hoe them and scoop them into my plastic trug. It's always risky leaving weeds. They may be established by spring. I hoe on my knees because I'm so cack handed and clumsy doing it standing up!

The ones with white gills are usually poisonous, I wouldn't take any risks with them.

Good luck Hollie, hope it all goes well for you. When is the big day? Is it nearby or some way away?
