Pulmonarias prefer the shade. They are easy to grow.

I'm the sane one. KEF and I are the two sensible normal people here, at least she used to say she was.

Shall now go and cook a normal chicken stir fry with rice for dinner.

To Keep The Trees Or Not?

Yes, I know seeds do that but I wondered whether MJSR had planted them, or the previous owner. They just don't seem in the right places.

I've been wondering - why are those trees coming up between paving stones? Did you plant them? Did they just grow? I would keep a Rowan, I like them and trees give character and shade and somewhere for birds to sit, but I don't think they are in the right place. They look so in the middle. They should have earth around them to let rain in and to breathe and allow the trunks to grow, as obelixx has said.

Is there much more garden that we can't see in the photo? Where is the flower bed? Which bits get sun? You wouldn't want to block it all out.

When I enlarged the photo it looked as though 2 trees were growing out of the same hole. I would get rid of one.

Rowans are lovely and are OK for small gardens. I would get rid of the ash.

If only I could get paid for doing what I love!

How possible would it be to do a training course in gardening and take it from there? People would be more likely to employ you if you had a diploma under your belt.

Hello Betty. This is the thread where we chat, not so often about gardening. Some of us have been here a long time, others are fairly new. Welcome. I hope you like it here.
