New rose bed

You should be able to get Mycorrhizal Fungi  in any good Garden Centre. David Austin Roses sell it on line, along with their lovely roses. http://www.davidaustinroses.co.uk/english/Advanced.asp?PageId=2153 

Roses love horse and pony poo, but it must be well rotted, black and crumbly, no smell. You can add it to your compost heap.

Talkback: How deep to sow seeds

Posted: 13/03/2015 at 22:47

I don't sow beetroot or nasturtiums as deep as 2 - 4 cms. I sow them about 1 - 2 cm.

Have a lovely time Liri.

They also have dressage competitions in Pompadour, I've been a few times. Dressge horses are so beautiful.

We had a lovely late birthday lunch out, bought OH's piano stool and a secateur on a pole for pruning climbing roses. Much cooler today, drizzly, 8°.

I went to the GC today and looked at an azada, but it's handle seemed quite short so I would have to stoop to use it which would give me back ache. Are they meant to be like that?

 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Sounds a frustrating day, Lunaria, at least you got in in the end. Nice surprise getting the plants though.

I've done nothing in the garden today. It rained and I took OH out for a late birthday lunch.

Reviving an old slightly tired garden

It looks lovely, chicken chaser, well done. Has anyone suggested choisya? It's evergreen has white flowers and the leaves are perfumed. It comes in a golden variety too, Sundance, and a smaller one, Aztec Pearl. Very different from bamboo and phormiums so would be a contrast.

Hello John. I live in Dordogne in France, which is an area of rolling hills, forests, rivers, chateaux (castles) and history. Here are some photos. In one of them I am in a boat on the river Dordogne, which is a lovely river for swimming and canoeing but it's about an hours drive from me. There is a lot of limestone so a lot of the houses are built of limestone and are very old.

They have them here in France. I've never used one, but it's tempting to go and buy one now.
