Jardins Ouvert/Open Garden

Posted: 22/06/2015 at 22:18

DD I'm always amazed that people are willing to open their gardens and very grateful as we have been to some lovely gardens, either as part of the NGS or a village opening for a local charity.  We always see new plants that we like and we have also found that the owners are very generous with the odd cutting.  I'm sure your day will be a great success and your cakes greatly appreciated. Good luck.

Do squirrels eat conkers

We also have had the odd conker tree growing in our pots, my carefully planted hosta seeds dug over but the best was the half of coconut that we discovered when planting up our pots.  Do they also eat rosebuds?  Rose buds on the fence seem to have been biten off

Thanks FB and TT.  The Avon thing was mentioned by KEF also.  Will looking into purchasing some and increasing my Vit B intake.

Thank you all for your advice.  I do not post much but always read the posts on this forum

Hi All,

Don't know if any of you could help but do you have any insect repellant advice other than sprays.  Seem to get a bite every time I go out in the garden.  I'm already dressing for winter so not to show to much skin.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question.

The NGS scheme is really good, we have been to a couple of gardens so far this year and plan to go again this Sunday.  The gardens have been really lovely and you do get some lovely views of the countryside. To get real value for money look for group openings where you get admission to more than one garden in the area, they usually do teas and sell plants what more could you want.

sanity in need of restoring

Bill,  I know how you feel, we found a whole cast iron bath buried in our garden, it's still there but concealed.  could not dig it out and it would have left a giant hole.  We also had loads of electrical bits.  I think possibly beware if you are buying a house from tradesmen that have used the garden as a 'storage area'
