I will be watching, curiosity, and I like Alan and I like gardens.

Help with controlling weeds

If you want wildflowers then membrane is not a good idea. If the brambles and nettles aren't dealt with and got rid of they will sent roots sideways which will crawl along under the membrane and pop out at the edges. A lot of wild flowers won't want to grow in the shade of the trees or the dry earth under them, so you need to research what to plant.

Thank you Runny beak, I hope others find it. The last 2 years threads have had some lovely photos.

We will be going to Suffolk in July so I'm hoping to post pics of Beth Chatto's garden, Hyde Hall and Bressingham Gardens.

1 could be a Kolkwitzia and 2 could be a Weigela, but like the others I can't see well enough. 3, I agree is phygelius and 4 is a hebe.

Please identify these flowers

They are peonies. They took ages to download. Are they big photos or is my laptop playing up?

I watched the beginning and the end but not the middle. As long as the owner liked it that was OK by me, but wouldn't have been my first choice. Glad she was happy.

Congratulations Lily Pilly. Aren't we lucky! When is Star Gaze Lily's due? My new grandson is Henri.

I've been picking raspberries, but it's got to dark to see properly. Bumper crop this year. Also picked blackcurrants to make into cordial tomorrow. Have made redcurrant cordial, lovely on a hot day.
