Talkback: Collecting fallen leaves

Posted: 09/12/2011 at 09:10

Having heard good things about making leaf mould in bin bags, each year we have lived in our current house I've made a mental note to collect the huge piles of leaves that collect on our front drive.  However, each year my husband, who isn't normally proactive when it comes to the garden, has got there first, cleared them all up and taken them down to the local tip......... and expects 'Brownie Points' for doing it aaarrgghhh

Plants still in flower?

Posted: 09/12/2011 at 08:57

The osteospermums I potted up to put in the greenhouse and forgot about so were left out on the drive are still flowering despite a couple of heavy frosts and still have roses and geum in the garden.

Well into Nov we had plants from every season flowering at once.  Seemed very strange to have hellebores flowering at the same time as strawberries ripening!  The salvias flowered better in Nov that they did all summer.
