Still can't decide what to do with this border.

What about a small tree? Then it's trunk will be in the lower bit and you could plant something like hardy geraniums under it. I see the neighbours have a silver birch, something like that with a light canopy would provide dappled shade. Amelanchier? Rowan. Or a crab apple would help block the view and have blossom in spring and coloured fruit in autumn. A climbing rose would be lovely too.

Questions about growing sweet corn

Posted: 01/04/2017 at 17:40

I live in Dordogne in SW France so we have hot summers and sweet corn grows fast if well watered. But we can have frosts up to early May. I sow sweet corn in the Greenhouse about mid April in pots. Then I plant them in a prepared bed in May. They seem to transplant without problems. If I sow direct outside they get eaten, probably mice. I plant mine much closer together, about 8 inches apart. They always get pollinated.

I couldn't type anymore on my Laptop. Every time the ads change the site sticks and I can't type anything and my Laptop seems to get hot. Using OH's as he is in England.

Was going to say my broad beans are just starting to germinate in pots in the GH. Whenever I've sown them in autumn they haven't made it through the winter.

That's gorgeous.

Roses always seem female to me.

Having some bothers posting again, every time the ads change the site gets stuck and I can't type.

Are they tulips?

Yes, the top one may be botanical tulips.
