Is it worth having a garden professionally designed?

Posted: 22/03/2013 at 16:57

A compromise I thnk ..using a landscape gardener for the heavy stuff, own design and work at it over the seasons. 

Over ten years my garden has eveolved as it has grown with me and family needs...from more veg and lawn with small pond to more pond/water feature, terracing for sitting out, extended lawn and now as much vertical planting as the three fences will hold, includung raspberries which 'creep' about!

Love it...researching plants, digging in the wet, visiting open gardens, lifting flagstones ...GW....talking to you all...   sigh... what is this  life if  carried away there

abreak in the clouds...time for fresh air.

Thanks BB

Talkback: Growing Verbena bonariensis from seed

Posted: 22/03/2013 at 11:36

Hello, my one plant seeded and blew into paving-crack  - left them there - potted up - grew on (in a sheltered corner) forgot about them until now!

So..onwards with re-potting.

The original plant just keeps dying down and reappearing. Soil not been fed, a bit stony.

Grows next to fennel, mint and offshoots of rosemary...narrow border against a fence.  probably growing in defiance of the cramped conditions!

GG, I too enjoy the Shrewsbury and Malvern Shows..will look out for you ...


Lizzie, me too, dalhias are stunning in their own right....

...reminds me of grandads allotment.

ahem ... I use as a filler (should I say that!)   when this pesky weather spoils my regular borders and save the tubers (as a novice said with ptide)


Ooops! this should be a rant!     erm,  no rantings to be found...I'll bow out.
