Am I grumpy cos.....

Posted: 13/04/2015 at 09:38

I think there will be a lot of disagreements here! But I agree with KEF - don't like Skimmia. Also hate hellebore foetidus and plants with green flowers. There is enough green already with leaves and grass. Hate ivy, Virginia Creeper and Vinca Minor because they want to take over my garden.

I.D Tree please !

Looks like a young, but dead, weeping willow.

hosta and geraniums

Posted: 13/04/2015 at 09:32

Hostas are hardy and can be left planted outside in the winter, but as those have been in it would be best to harden them off first and give them some slug protection.

By geraniums, do you mean Pelargoniums or hardy geraniums? It's too soon to put Pelargoniums out, not frost hardy, but hardy geraniums are hardy so harden them off and plant them.

Anyone done any gardening today?

My raspberries seem to like rose fertiliser. If they are in a container don't forget to water them regularly.

Ooops, all this talk about cannas and I've just realised mine are forgotten in a box in the garage. Wonder what I'll find.

Sorted the strawberry bed when we got back from the lunch party. Soil had gone very heavy, what happened to last year's manure and compost?  Dug in a lot more and planted some new strawberries.

Toscana Strawberries

Posted: 12/04/2015 at 22:39

I think strawberries can rot if planted a bit too deep and the winter is wet. Has happened to some of my ordinary strawberries in the ground, but not with the Toscana, which are in a pot.

My Toscana are pretty, but I don't think the fruit was that sweet, rather sharp in fact. Still going strong.

DD it's looking great.

Any idea what this is?

Posted: 12/04/2015 at 22:31

Could it be a wild salvia or clary? There are lots growing in my paddocks, less than an hour from you. http://gallery.nen.gov.uk/asset64116-.html
