Hello all. Matty and I have come back from SW England to SW France. We had a great time at the Malvern Show and went to a huge Garden Centre. We came back on Saturday evening, but have been so busy.

My garden, which is open on Sunday, has been very busy while I was away growing masses of goosegrass and creeping buttercups! We've been trying to remove them.

It's now very hot here in Dordogne, 27° today.

I have read a bit, but 6 pages since yesterday!

Must finish packing. Charged camera battery. It's very windy outside, hope it won't affect motorway driving.

Christine, your garden doesn't have to be big to love it. My daughter hated her garden when they bought their first house. She asked me for help. Here are photos of before and then after I had a go at it with her husband. It's more grown up now with clematis on the walls and roses on the arches. Only 10m x 2.5m.

I wouldn't, RB!

Dove's Cromer day out sounds great, just the sort of day I like.

DD, I'm sure you can come and meet Matty. Glad you're coming to the Strawberry Tea. Will Charlie be coming? Most of us are on the elderly side, if he doesn't mind he'll be welcome!

I hope it can all be sorted Lily P, how worrying.

 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Been in Vegetable garden last 2 days. Have done planting out of courgettes, cucumbers, butternut squash, lettuces, sweetcorn, runner beans, French beans, French marigolds and nasturtiums around edges and planted the half hardy annuals in the cut flower bed, which already had hardy annuals coming up. Planted the GH tomatoes, but not the outside ones yet.

Here are photos of cut flower bed (also has peas), bean patch; courgette, lettuce etc area. I use weed suppressant fabric, but still get weeds between - so looks a bit unattractive. I'm not the tidiest of gardeners! The bean poles with no plants have seeds planted.

Thanks Edd, just looked at the thread.

Getting rid of brambles

Posted: 04/05/2015 at 14:02

I've just read it too, thank you, brambles are an on going problem. Verdun obviously manages to dig them out before they get big. When they are big and growing under a shrub it's impossible to dig them out.

Thanks Edd.

Chicky, please would you explain about brambles, SBK and pipecleaners.

Couldn't the wallflowers wait until they don't look good?

OH has weeded the Herb Robert out of the irises  First time I've known him do weeding!

Been planting the GH tomatoes and weeding the onions. But just walked around the garden with OH and the weeds in the long border are horrendous, full of goosegrass. I did it a bit over a month ago.
