Definitely a complementary wuss here .....although even then I have disasters. Who knew phlox "orange perfection" would turn out to be distinctly pink
OH asked the same asparagus question yesterday - checked my trusty diary, and our first shoots appeared on April 5th last year.
I think that last sentence qualifies me as a true garden nerd
I agree with the tomorite Tootles, but i use it at this time of year, when the flowers have gone over and the leaves are still going strong. I wouldn't be able to find my bulbs in the autumn
How lovely Joybell - such pretty pastels. What is the pink flowered shrub?
Loads of deer here. They LOVE tulips more than anything else . However, mine do not eat daffs, chinodoxa, primroses, pushkina, snowdrops or hellebores .....so we grow lots of them. We have also fenced off an area of garden to grow all the deer ambrosia.
if you want me to give my summer planting list too then let me know ....its getting longer each year. I plant sacrificial offerings of a single plant, and if it survives then I plant swathes of them. We rarely see them, but they visit most mornings ....it normally takes them less than 2 days to find new fodder to munch.
Thanks Dove - and understandable this year ((Hugs))
Just got the Easter decs out
4whole days with no work has got to be worth celebrating
Lucky you Pdoc. Is it HB in Bray, or one of his London ones??
Love your new garden Hollie Will be great to see that border coming together, and I have soil envy. Looks lovely and black and crumbly
Poor Flynn Hope you work out what is upsetting his system soon.
hugs for Liri and Lesley and their Mums. Hope both recover speedily
thank heavens the winds have died down. Luckily no damage here - hope everyone else escaped harm (apart from the dustbin lids - one of the advantages of a wheelie bin).
