Tree for small front garden?

Posted: 05/05/2014 at 09:08

That's a good list, but sumach can be a nuisance sending up suckers.

HELLO FORKERS!

Don't take any notice of Verdun, Mrs.G - he's just  with envy!

Look like gladioli to me as well, OL.

Going to have an early night, then I may wake up at a more useful time tomorrow. But will have a look round here first.

Help for flooded gardens

Did you take any photos Lizzie? I've started a thread for Gardens we have Visited.

Full or partial sun?

Posted: 04/05/2014 at 19:28

11am until 4.30pm is fine, they get sun during the sunniest part of the day.

Photos of your ponds please

Wow, Lindsay, fascinating. Amazing photos. I hope she was impressed and didn't eat him!

What is it?

My foxglove leaves are a bit furrier, I'd go for comfrey, but hard to tell at this stage.

I agree with Lyn, they look fine, but if you feel it looks gappy then plant some annuals. That's what I do too.

Last year I started a thread about gardens we visited. Some people sent some lovely photos  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/gardens-we-have-visited-2013/80843.html  so I thought I would start another for this year.

We went to the Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park the end of April. It was pouring, they lent us umbrellas. No one else was in the garden except the ducks!

We loved it last year, think I've said that already somewhere.

That wall and bed look great Chicky. OH needs extra kisses!

My OH has arrived in Stansted, he rang.

Didn't do middle bed, sorted greenhouse instead. Filled the 3 coldframes with babies so that I can plant the tomatoes in the GH. Watered them all and the pots around the house, having fed the roses in the pots for the second time. Tied up some climbing roses. Probably should have put that on the GW thread. Shall go out later and put the lids on the coldframes.
