Cheers! Sent you an email.

Waterlogged Garden never gets the sun

Posted: 03/01/2015 at 10:13

You won't get flak from me pansyface because I was going to suggest that. But the drainage must be sorted first and there must be a means of drainage afterwards. I've read that the paving over of people's front gardens for car parking has caused drainage problems and now there are rules about how it's done.

There could always be a sort of bog garden up to the paving with plants that like being damp. Pots on the paving could have lovely leafy plants like hostas and heucheras that are OK with shade. And a seating area.

Morning all. Grey and drizzling +3°, so a lot warmer!

cangranmafixit - I've only just replied to your PM. I didn't get a notification from GW about it.

I haven't had email notifications about posts for months, miss them, but this is the first time that I haven't for PMs. Does everyone else get them for PMs?

Lovely pic, Chicky, may use it as my avatar pic, if I can remember how to do it! I will stick to my name then.

Dove, I've been having fun with Google and B&Bs. I know Southwold of course, because of Granny and we want to go to Beth Chatto and Bressingham Gardens, among others. I will contact you though, but it's now bedtime.

Get if off your chest.

That's better news Philippa, good luck, hope it works out.

Has Anybody Got This Rose?

Posted: 02/01/2015 at 17:47

I haven't got that rose, but now, having seen the link, I want it.

There are lots of roses growing in big pots in David Austin's garden and I grow them in pots too, just need to keep them more fed and watered than ones in the ground.

Been a horrid, cold, grey, bleak day. I've been hibernating, ironing and searching Google for B&Bs in Suffolk in July.

Also found my plug plant catalogue on line and there was a note in it to say they aren't doing classic Busy-Lizzies anymore as the fungal disease has now hit France. I grew mine from seed and they were fine. BUT - should I now change my name? I'm not a fungus, but it seemed to fit so well as I am a Liz.

If there is anyone in France looking at this, (DD, but I've told her already) I've had good plants from http://www.promessedefleurs.com/vivaces.html  and https://www.jardinexpress.fr/
