Morning all. Have had a shuffle in the cold frames this morning and all that has hardened off and the young perennials are now on the kitchen terrace. GH is nearly empty enough to start planting the tomatoes, won't do it today as it's sunny and it gets hot in there. Must do middle bed. Then I'll have room to get some of the plants into it.
Not a bank hol here, was last Thursday for 1st May and will be this Thursday for VE day on the 8th.
That's a good list, but sumach can be a nuisance sending up suckers.
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.
Did you take any photos Lizzie? I've started a thread for Gardens we have Visited.
11am until 4.30pm is fine, they get sun during the sunniest part of the day.
Wow, Lindsay, fascinating. Amazing photos. I hope she was impressed and didn't eat him!
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.
