If you use glyphosate that will kill the grass too. You need a lawn weedkiller.

The cutting garden 2016

Posted: 03/05/2016 at 22:48

I've made a cutting garden in the vegetable garden. OH put up a trellis for my sweet peas. I've sown clarkia, ammi, calendula, larkspurs and cosmos directly into the soil and they are just showing. I have more plants still in the GH which will join them, more cosmos, antirrhinums, zinnias, lavatera Silver Cup. I bought bare roots of gypsophila in February which I potted up and are now 3 good plants.

Wollerton Hall vs. Snow Goose

I have Mme Alfred Carrière, it grows pretty tall, probably too tall for a front door. A friend of mine has Snow Goose and loves it. It would be the right size for a front door.

Morning all. Cloudy. Had a GH shuffle this morning after feeding the horses. Now the coldframes are full as well as the GH.

I never noticed mucking out clearing the nose, but my horses don't live in. They have a field shelter so mucking out isn't enclosed.

Hands are aching from weeding. Still have 2 more beds and some tidying to do.

How to have a garden with spring and Summer interest?

Posted: 02/05/2016 at 22:48

I do the same with snowdrops and hostas. I also use annuals in summer, like salvia farinacea, to provide long lasting colour in gaps where I had tulips and forget-me-nots in spring. I plant bellis daisies and violas in front of borders in late autumn to flower from early spring. I plant dahlias and daffodils side by side.
