Just to say i have successfully grown 6 foot bamboos in both pots and troughs, creating a living but portable barrier. Need watering occasionally, but never fed them - seemed indestructible.
Not getting in to the rights and wrongs of border disputes ( don't know enough to comment) , but as a planting solution it might work

Problem with editing posts

Posted: 02/09/2013 at 06:55

seems to be ok for me (i'm on an iphone) when you submit for the first time.

i didn't know you could edit something once it was submitted - do you mean there is a way for me to correct my typos after all??

Morning all 

work medical later so not allowed brekkie or ( more important)  cuppa tea

first plum from our victoria tree ( not just this year, but ever) - littlest chicklet got to eat it - she is the fruit monster in our house- and declared it delicious.  Plenty more where that came from!

Plants to identify - grasses and some sort of monster

Many thanks - I knew you would come up trumps.  OH wanted me to go and hunt out the owner of the garden - I told him I knew a better way !!

Really enjoyed Sussex Prairie Gardens - pictures on the gardens we have visited thread - but here's a flavour:

 Now thats what I call a drift !!

Lots of plant stalls there too, so came away with a light pink sidalcea and some liatris, plus OH got some tall grasses with red feathers.  Need some stuff identifying too - will start another thread.
