Thank you Mrs. G. Feel much better now

Truly evil weevil

Could it be something bigger than that, like voles? They live in tunnels underground and don't have hills like moles.

Dying sumac?

It sounds as though it may have reached the end of it's life. But it may grow another tree from a sucker.

Twigs from lidl.....what are they?

They could be willow. It roots very easily. Have a look at this link  you can make arbours etc with it.

Lupines leaves seem to be dying

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 10:11

It should be OK if new leaves are coming through, probably just the shock of being moved. Lupins can be fussy about being moved. You did water it didn't you? Also watch out for slugs and snails.

No to everyone who asks for donations ? Do you agree or disagree with this ?

What a shame. I think teaching children about wildlife and plants is so important and, in the long run, it is good for Garden Centres. The children will learn how to look after this beautiful planet too.

Small tree for front garden

I wonder which tree Marie chose, her post was over a year ago.

Morning all.

Great trouser joke Verdun.

Lovely acer, Mrs. G, but I think I'll join you in the sulk corner - only Chicky noticed I'm back after a week away in England. But probably understandable as I don't post much in spring, too busy. Amazing how many weeds have grown in veggie garden in 1 week.

Evening all. We got back from our week in England last night.

See it's Tracey OL's birthday today. Hope it was a good one.

I haven't read back on this thread yet but I have posted photos on Garden Gallery.

We had a good week visiting Canterbury, Oxford and London with French friends. Went to the Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park, just with OH. Of course that was the day it poured, Friday. Think we were the only ones there, but they lent us umbrellas. Lovely garden.

Unfortunately, I got a sore throat the morning after we arrived which turned into a feverish cold, so wasn't feeling as well as I would have liked. On Wednesday friends and OH went to London for the day and I stayed in bed in hotel in Windsor. At least the weather was quite mild, much better than it had been here in SW France, cold and wet here.

Housesitter did a good job, animals, baby plants in GH, and garden are all well.

I've been away for a week and have just been catching up on all your beautiful gardens.

I see Wintersong is back, I'd wondered where she was a few weeks ago.

My garden has grown like mad while I've been away and is starting to smother the weeds I hadn't weeded before we went!  But the lovely tulips are almost over, a few dark red ones left.
