Help with design

Bear in mind that biennial flowers won't flower this year and perennials from seed can take a bit of time to get going, may not flower this year and won't be a decent size for 2 or 3 years. Much cheaper than buying as a big plant but needs patience. I prefer to buy small plants from the garden centre and pot them on until a reasonable size to plant out. Otherwise slugs and insects may get them or they may just disappear.

Meconopsis can be tricky, needs acid, damp soil in a shady place.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 22/03/2016 at 21:54

Sorry to hear that Archiepem.

Was a lovely day. We spent some time this afternoon wrestling with the Star Jasmine (not spelling the Latin name!) I decided to re-pot it when I saw a very big pot in the GC sales a few weeks ago. It is now a lot bigger than me and we had quite a job to get it out of its pot and lift it into the new one. Needed doing as it fell over in the gales and went crooked and I couldn't straighten it. It's climbing up a rose obelisk in the pot.

Morning all. Dog woke me at 6.30am. I am not a morning person, but it is lovely and sunny, wasn't at 6.30. Must go, committee meeting.

We often have mini powercuts that messes up the timing and OH keeps putting things on the planner which clash and spoil my recordings.
