What is your weather like? (2)

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.🙄

Welcome  to the forum Inglezinho. It is always interesting to us weather watchers to know what the weather is like in other parts of the world and learn how you cope with the conditions there. When I travel to hot countries I am always facinated by how plants survive extreme weather. 😊

Robert you don't say what part of the country you live in. Maybe it will be better for you tomorrow and in the meantime put your feet up and conserve your energy for later!  You seem to have lots of plans to  mull over 😊
