Are you sure it is borage and not alknet? Borage is not difficult to get rid of but alknet definitely is!

Green is the colour of the sparkling corn when we rise, when we rise - he missed out a bit in that clip. Boy, does it take me back.....

You can move them now or in the spring. If you move them now they will have a good chance to settle in while the soil is still warm. Youu can cut them back a bit now and then hard back in the spring.

wooden planters

I agree with all of above. I would also put some broken up pieces of polystrene in the base to help with drainage( on top of the liner) and keep down the weight - be sure where you want to put these barrels as they are going to be heavy and difficult to move later. What are you thinking of putting in these planters - seasonal/permanent planting as that might influence the type of compost you use.

Am I posting too much?

Overpostitis - never heard of it! If you've got the time, inclination, knowledge, interest, do it - it's up to everyone else if they read it!!

Jean, is that a label attached to your 'jasmine' ? If so, what does it say?Like Lottie I'm not convinced it is jasmine either.

What's the weather like in your area?

Essex - it's tipping it down - empty water butts now full! Had to turn the lighs on to read it's so dark outside - winter is on the way...I might even check the central heating's working  

Talkback: Growing raspberries

Posted: 23/09/2012 at 10:39

Who's Leo? 

aandpsclare, that's how raspberries reproduce - they throw up new shoots from the base and the these shoots can be quite a distance from the main plant. They are usually grown in their own bed and restricted - just cut off the shoots that are out of place or dig up a new plant for a friend. 

What is this plant with purple flowers ?

Posted: 23/09/2012 at 09:47

Yes,  I agree. Often sold as a house plant in M&S but can grow into big bush.  Seems to be hardy in London in a sheltered postion and flowers well. Mine is about 3ft tall, my niece's over 5ft - both flower well in late summer though I always think mine is dead in May as they are such slow starters - they make up for it though at this time of year. 

Brand New Garden - 1 Year on

Lovely choice of tree - crab apples are beautiful. Great that the land will not be built on as you can borrow the view. Your pond will bring in wildlife in no time
