Autumn is just starting and new plants are appearing, like Sternbergia Lutea (yellow autumn crocus), cyclamen and Michaelmas daisies.

My UG does all the mowing, a lot of hacking back of overgrown shrubby stuff and all the repairs. He also does all the hoovering indoors and a lot of the washing up. But he is retired.

Clearing a garden

I agree with Liriodendron, a crab apple, blossom in spring, pretty coloured fruits in autumn. Lots of varieties to choose from. If pot grown, then any time, but autumn is always a good time, will get rained in and have time to settle down before next year's growth.

Oh dear Yvie, but at least there is a time limit, the 5 days will seem very long. Thank God it's not meningitis. Hugs. Always a worry when little ones are ill.

Hello all. All socialising is over until Friday when we go to a wedding anniversary. For the moment anyway. I am expecting 100s of baby plug plants this week, violas, pansies, forget-me-nots etc. Will have to pot them on, then plant out in pots and troughs and borders when the summer annuals are over.

Verdun, how could you? Chimney pot was for OL!

Yes, good luck from me too OL. Don't think I said before. Very brave.

Rose garden mixed with edible fruits share same bed safe?

Rose fertiliser doesn't poison the food from the plant it fertilises. You can feed raspberries with rose fertiliser. Now pesticides that's another matter.
