Snowdrop Walk - East Anglia

Posted: 09/02/2014 at 19:53

So lovely to see you all .  And the snowdrops look jaw dropping too - miles of them.  Were the large drifts all the "normal" ones (still the prettiest imo) or were there any big clumps of fancy named ones??

and did you spot any hard core galanthophiles??

Lovely hellebores on here - particularly the pink one at Ashwoods.

went for a long walk instead of gardening - one of the views is below - mother nature's very own prairie planting of swaying grass in front of white multi stemmed birch .... isn't she clever .....


Tree stump removal

We had 20 leylandii stumps - all quite large - it took half a day and was about £200 - he charged by the hour.  The kit was impressive, and our job took a while because there were so many individual stumps to do.

Morning all - survived my day in London - actually had a really good time.  Sunny today, but windy.  Might try and get out there to do some sweetpea sowing - think i have collected enough loo rolls now.  Hope the snowdrop walkers have a lovely day - we want a full report

Hope your head is ok now KEF - i've PM'd you.

Only just caught up with this thread - what a nightmare Hostafan.  Was there much in it ?  Hope the insurance delivers, but what a hassle.  Think i would shed tears if anything happened to my GH.

john Mc - my Gh only gets sun for half the day at the moment.  I can grow most things, although tomatoes take an age to ripen.  We are moving ours to a sunny spot later this year as part of a bigger garden redesign
