Early pruning advised?

I'm leaving mine for a bit, as Chicky says.

Cold frames

Posted: 15/01/2014 at 23:10

My OH is about (I hope) to replace my coldframe lids. He'll be using polycarbonate. Lighter and more insulating than glass.

I used a membrane covered with sand - it was what I had.

They are phlox drumondii, I think, David.

I remember Busy-Lizzies! I still grow them every year from plug plants. Had a few ill ones about three years ago, but all OK since. Perhaps France didn't suffer so much.

A Very particular rose

This is what I came up with after searching Peter Beales site.

I don't think any rose is really evergreen. You don't give a colour.

I've met you before here Lisa and there are still people here who were there when you last came. The odd one has changed her name though, like Matty 2.

WW Waterperry is beautiful. We went in July 2010.

HELLO FORKERS!

Good afternoon all. Been catching up.

I don't care for toad in the hole because I like my sausages fried evenly all the way round so they are brown. Probably a hang up from childhood, having been told that the skin was made from intestine! But I like sausages.

About the wedding flowers, was that the question I answered and sent a photo of my daughter's wedding flowers?

I loved the herbaceous borders with Chris Beardshaw (who is nice to look at too). It's what I've been trying to do for years, but never managing quite like those ones. I've been to Waterperry, beautiful. My sort of gardening.

I really enjoyed this evenings programme, perennials with Chris Beardshaw. That's my sort of gardening, except mine doesn't turn out as good as that!

climbing plants

I mix up earth, rotted manure and compost for more substance and nourishment for the bottom and middle of the pot and fill the last few inches at the top with ordinary potting compost, so I don't get weeds.
