Closer to Bordon than Guildford, Hostafan.  Just outside Farnham.  One of our cycling routes takes us out that way - by Whitehill and Selbourne.  There is a fabulous Hosta garden in Lindford too - have you ever been?

I think Star Gaze Lily went before Christmas - maybe she will pop in later.

Beech isn't evergreen, but gives all round screening as it keeps the old leaves till the new ones come out.  We have several, established form bareroot whips, and they only take a couple of years to get going and merge together ...another possibility for you to consider

Morning all 

Glad you had a good day in London Dove (travelling aside). Hope the packing/spring cleaning is all worthwhile soon BM.

have seen the same weather forecast as Verd - looks like Weds night could be hairy.

in the meantime, today is a day to explore the garden and see what is popping up - mostly hellebores snowdrops and other bulbs.  Love the anticipation at this time of year.  I added a new witch hazel Pallida to the garden last year and it is flowering profusely - vivid yellow spidery pom poms ....lovely

And our new horsey friends have invited us to their field this afternoon to raid the dung heap ..... Happy Days

It's my birthday

I love this forum too.  Advice "on tap", always someone to talk gardening too, (when noone else I know in "real life" is really that interested in it), and plenty of smiles to be had.

I work full time, am out of the house 12 hour days, often have to work in the evenings too, have 2 kids, and spend every spare minute of "me time" thinking or doing gardening ....and still find time for the odd forum post.

not really sure why I felt the need to justify myself, but there you go
