Walnut tree and climbing rose

Posted: 21/04/2014 at 10:21

I thought walnut trees did something to the soil around them that stopped other plants growing (although i might have got that wrong).

Morning All.  Last day of freedom before work tomorrow.  Will prick out all my seedlings and pot on those that i did a couple of weeks ago - a GH day.  Weather nice after yesterday's drenching, so expect to see plants visibly growing today.

How about a couple of flowering shrubs, as well as perennials, to give your long, bare border some structure, Blackest??

Quick post from me - too late to catch up, but will do so in the morning.  Lovely day with family (Dad, Sister, BIL, nephew and nieces) - lots of laughs.  Rain cleared away in time for an afternoon walk, which made room for another meal .  Easter Bunny was forced indoors, but caused excitement and giggles just the same.  Love days like today

Enjoy Elgar Woody - what a treat !

Rain has arrived here too - well they said it would.  Still, plants need a drink.

Hope you find the perfect spot for your rose OL

Happy Easter.  

Rain still not arrived - but promised very soon.  Family arriving in a couple of hours - should be fun .
