Good Evening FORKERS

Bit like here in France, the people in Brittany are in their own country too.

The red peppers show "hot" threads, but don't know why they are hot. Perhaps Daniel the GW website editor knows.

I want to hide the houses at the end of the garden

Laurel grows quickly and is dense. Would make a good screen but not too close to the boundary. Some people aren't keen on it, but it works. You could always keep the garden rubbish area behind it!

Problem with my shrubs

Have you watered them? Don't let newly planted shrubs dry out.

Do you water them with hard tap water? Rain water is best. They need feeding with acid fertiliser. Flowers can turn brown because of frost or morning sun after a cold night.

Thanks Bev, I'd forgotten about Beechgrove.

Can anyone identify this plant?

Actually, I haven't either, but I saw the head gardener at Hyde Hall (I think it was) getting rid of it there on an old Gardener's World. He had to get the bed ready to plant for the new season. It was green and he sprayed it with Glyphosate.

You don't have to hold back on planting the erysimum, as lazy gardener said, it is hardy.

The garden varieties would be much better. Here is a site to click on which tells you about them and has lots of different ones to look at.

another plant/weed ID!

They pop up in my flower beds, if anyone tells you it's a weed you can tell them it's a wildflower!

You really don't want horse tail and it has deep roots.The best way to get rid of it is to spray with glyphosate, but don't let it touch the rose.
