Morning all.

Poured in the night, woke me up. Raining now. Garden needs it, but I hope it clears up, lots more weeding to do.

 Choisya Aztec Pearl. Don't know where titles will end up and my photos usually turn up in the reverse order of how I posted them!

I've started edging the beds but haven't done the ones in these photos yet.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Come in for cup of tea. Have been weeding and edging, nearly finished the middle bed. There is now a big gap in the middle of it. Wonder what was there last year? Must look at photos. At least there is a home waiting for some of the homeless plants.

Must go and re-pot some tomatoes and sort out a cold frame - remove overwintered perennials, weed it (has sand on the floor) and put weed supressing fabric in it. Then I can get some annuals out of the GH to harden off. No frosts forecast for the next week and the CFs have lids anyway.

Good morning Marion.

Loads of bittercress here in France too this year and I've been digging up celandines too. Also watered the broad beans!

Another lovely lot of photos from you, thank you.

Morning all. Cool and foggy here.

Oh, DD, I hope the vet can do something quickly. I always think of tick fever first here, quite common and has symptoms like that. Are his gums pale?

We are off to the DIY place to get something for a roof for the place where we sit in summer, for shade and to keep rain off. Was covered with a vine that has died.

Happy Marion is in Bristol. She is lovely, in her 80s and full of energy. http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/my-bristol-garden-in-2015/582543-32.html 

Dianthus dying over winter? Please help :)

Posted: 24/04/2015 at 07:35

Mine have died too, I bought them as plug plants and they looked quite healthy last summer. They were Dianthus plumarius, modern garden pinks. I have now looked them up and found that they aren't always hardy in cold wet winters.

Planted small trees, what to grow in between

Bulbs and annuals are great for that sort of thing. You will have to water the young trees regularly anyway.

What´s in a rose?

Posted: 24/04/2015 at 07:22

Roses don't all have the same leaves, some are red when young, some bronze, some green, some quite big, others smaller, some tough looking (like Rosa Rugosa), some looking tender. New leaves don't look the same as old leaves either.

Back home in France.

Dog has been very happy with the house sitter, but plants less so, well, some of them. Some of my big pots very dry and some seedlings in the GH really unhappy. Gave them all a good soak and I'll see how they are tomorrow, but water just runs straight through dry compost. But HS did make our evening meal which was nice of her.
