Help wanted for planters for front garden

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 22:32

Google the plants I've noted and see what you think. If it's 3 feet then that probably isn't enough room for 4 rows.

Advice on filling new raised veg bed

Leave it as it is. Most veg like soil that is loose and not compacted.

For the big one you will be a bit limited for colours by the shade. Will you be watering them? Because there is dry shade and damp shade which can suit different types of plants. In shade it can help to have foliage shape texture and colour. Plants - Hostas, Astilbe, Brunnera "Jack Frost", Pulmonarias, hardy Fuchsia such as "Lena", Epimediums, Heucheras, Primulas, Astrantia, some of the hardy geraniums.

As I live in France I really enjoy the contact with English gardeners. Joined the forum a few years ago.

I wonder if there are bluebell woods in North Suffolk or South Norfolk? Where's Blickling Hall, Nut? We are going to our cottage near Diss in April.

Welcome back Topbird.

Lovely day, I've been gardening.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 17:07

Warm sunny day.

Washed greenhouse shelves and put up the temporary shelving on trestles for my plug plants which should arrive this week. Put out the heated mat, turned on the heated cable in sand, plugged in the 3 electric propagators and the little electric heater and put all my baby plants from last month and last week's sowing in the GH. They had been on window sills but some started going a bit leggy.

Planted out mangetout peas, sown 1 month ago and sowed some more directly in the earth in veg garden.

Then finished weeding the kitchen terrace beds, and swept a lot of twigs off the paving, fallen off the lime tree.. Kitchen terrace is 15m x 15m.

Planted out some violas and 3 erysimums in the greengage bed.
