What is your weather like? (2)

I have prepared the garden here in Cheshire as we are expecting wind and rain,later on today so hopefully nothing will blow about. I have tidied up and removed my planters off the wall and now we will wait and see!

Dandylions are very environmental Carolyn as insects love them so I wouldn't worry about them! They also look rather beautiful when in flower. I know we regard them as a weed. I live opposite a small play field where they are plentiful and then blow their seed over to my garden so I know what I'm talking about 😊

Don't count on it GD, but you never know, it would be lovely if it was sunny for a change, especially as it is my granddaughter's thirteenth birthday! 😊

Ideas for a north border

The area does get a little sunshine and it might be worth trying something like Osmanthus. Many plants seem to do alright further along in the border. Perhaps the biggest problem will be my soil which is sandy and dry.

That sounds good Fairygirl, I will have to get to my nearest garden centre and look these plants up. The Pyracantha that was removed was huge and therefore there is a big gap to fill. Thank you for your suggestion. 😊

Thank you hogweed, I will certainly consider sarcoccocca humilis. It seems that it is quite an accommodating plant and the flowers would be very welcome in the winter 😊

I have just had a very large Pyracantha removed from a fairly shady area and would like to fill up the space left with something that will be ok to look at in the winter.I appreciative the light now coming into my garden so don't want anything too tall. It doesn't have to be evergreen but perhaps have an interesting shape for the winter months. Any ideas would be much appreciated, thanks in advance!

Lovely day here in Cheshire and I should get my washing dry. I had a Pyracantha removed on Tuesday as OH was struggling each year to keep it in check. Thank goodness the weather allowed the young men to get on with the job. I would think twice now before planting anything so prickly.🙄
