My Bristol Garden in 2015

Posted: 01/01/2015 at 10:08

Good morning, Marion, and Happy New Year. I, too, am looking forward to your new gardening year.

Wow 13°! It was -8° in my spot in Dordogne this morning and forecast is for +2° this afternoon.

Summer flowering shrubs for shade

Posted: 01/01/2015 at 10:04

Is it in full, partial or dappled shade? I have a golden Philadelphus in total shade. These shrubs will be OK with some shade - Hypericum Calycinum, Hydrangeas, Pyracantha, Fuschia Ricartonii, Abelia Grandiflora. There is more choice, I think of spring flowering shrubs.

Morning all. Hello Stacey. Hello Tracey, Orchid Lady, now with a yellow dress. But I'll look silly if I've got it wrong!  Did you have a good Christmas, how is the business doing?

-8° again this morning - did you say +9° KEF???  Will do the flower count if the garden defrosts. All white at the moment. 

Happy new Year

Wow Lesley, looks like a giant has been blowing huge smoke rings.

I'm a slower typist than Lesley! We said almost the same thing.

Happy New Year

Thank you, Marion. Your thread has been a delight. I'll miss it next year, or can you think of a reason for doing another one? Please!
