If you can wait for weathering the new one will eventually look like the older part. Otherwise look for some woodstain the right colour.

I always pinch the tops off. Works quite well.

I'd never heard of Hylda Baker. In something called "Nearest and Dearest", I looked her up. They spelt it with a y. I was too busy with training to be a nurse, and then working funny hours, to watch TV.

Love your white rose, Wintersong.

Joybell, the red wavy lines are because of spellcheck, your computer thinks you have made a spelling mistake. It doesn't agree with a lot of the names on here!

Too hot to garden today. Have done ironing in the sitting room as it's cool there, thick stone walls, high ceiling, was a barn.

Hello all. Pippin sounds a lucky girl.

Been out at a friend's. She's decided to become an agent for a company selling Aloe Vera products. Ordered something for my elderly horse who has rubbed himself sore because of flies.

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.
