Do you think I'd win a prize for the biggest carrot at the local show?


Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 16/06/2015 at 21:34


Done my first bit of gardening since we came home from the New York trip. Have deadheaded 3 climbing roses and done some weeding in the veggie garden.

Before and after.

Wow, what's happened to Dove? Is that just from visiting Wonky's garden? Shall post her avatar here in case she changes her mind all of a sudden!


Suggestions for ants in flower bed

So do I. I haven't heard of that before, wonder if it really works.

I have had that problem before, especially in dry weather. Ant powder was the only thing that worked, but usually I don't use insecticides. Case of needs must!

Sweet peas

They can be slow to germinate, old seeds are unreliable. But that is rather late to sow. I sow mine in the autumn and again in early spring. Also I sow mine 1cm deep.

This used to be my avatar, some time ago. Very typical of me - buying plants! Then I thought real Busy-Lizzies would be prettier. But I think I was a rose in between.

What I found really surprising was that he didn't have any protective clothing and he put his bare hands into the swarm!

Morning all.

DD, as someone already said - if the edges are cut and the lawn mown it will look fine. I always feel that is so unfair, I spend hours weeding and it looks a mess, then OH rushes round with the tractor mower and it looks great! If you like I could come and cut the edges with my edging shears.

I must go and do something about the knee high weeds in the veggie garden, but at least there isn't a deadline to meet! And the earth is soft after the rain.

No I didn't, Marion, although I knew about it. There wasn't time for everything. The first couple of days OH had to go to choir practice, then there was the Concert.

I hope you enjoy the talk, I'm sure you will.
