I try to avoid the red hot pokers too
Not today, but I often "sit" on plants - when you plant close together there is no room to bend down
Lots more weeding done - amazing how liquorishy agastaches smell even when they have lost their leaves. Potted up some bareroot sedums, achillea, asters and geraniums to fill some gaps next year. Also decided to plant my alliums in pots - i know i have gaps, but I can't remember where - this way I can slot them in next May.
Time to read some more of my book - a fascinating account of how someone round here recreated a jekyll garden from the original plans. Will visit next summer, but thought I'd learn the story first - bit like reading the book before you go to the movie
Still looking really fresh Fairy - lovely
Our Fatsias are now monsters - but the bees love the flowers
Flumpy - Daniel gave a good update and explanation yesterday on the "still waiting for updates thread" - think its currently on page 2. its being looked at, but might be a little while yet
I'll leave til the spring anyway - but it will get lots of looking at and cooing over in the meantime
Mr Chicky has just announced he is going off to get the replacement panes we need for the GH - yippee. The no-nag policy (but lots of subliminal messages ) has paid off
Just been out to look - it is quite a way from the mother plant, so probably a seedling, but possibly a sucker. Would i have to treat it differently if it was?
i guess if a sucker it will be a true JP, whereas if a seedling will be pot luck
How exciting - thanks nut and Berghill. We have a new baby
Hi Lizzie - there are hundreds to choose from, but I would suggest you send for a Bowdens catalogue - lots of pictures and information about conditions needed, eventual sizes etc etc
You might need to look at ones that do ok in drier conditions, as I would imagine your cherry tree will take quite a lot of water from the soil.
