heather is a great rockery plant that can withstand the harshest of weather.

I know its not clump forming, but Buddleja is always a winner

Is this spring worse than last year's?

Posted: 25/03/2013 at 08:10

By this time last year I'd had 3 bbq's was gardening in just a t-shirt, and we had regularly had temperatures of over 25c in my garden. Hence the hosepipe ban. This year nothing like that at all, this march is like Jan/early Feb last year.

The first Gardeners' World

Are we 100% sure that it was the BBC or in fact US that payed for Monty's cathedral of a greenhouse..? As its in his garden it may well have been payed for by Monty. 

scaredy cat plant, does it work

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 09:35

I found that cats hate being sprayed with water, I used to use my seed spray set onto jet but anything that sprays them they will hate (and of course it wont hurt them). I now have a dog so no cat problems in my garden. 

Spring Bulbs

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 09:28

I am not 100% sure on this but mostly will depend on the bulb/flower. I know that most of them take thier nutrients through the leaves and convert to food and store in the bulb for next year so leaving them is a good idea but then it can differ depending on the bulb.

Is it worth having a garden professionally designed?

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 09:23

I think its interesting that you say that a well designed garden need not rely on expensive paving yet in your garden design images on your website they seem to be mostly expensive paving and less about the plants.

I also think that trying to get a bit of free advertising isnt always a bad thing but just be upfront and honest about what your doing. 

 

Californian Lilac

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 09:04

I want to put one of these in this year but need to make sure I put in the shrub that gets to about 150cm. My next door neighbours is huge and looking nice but would be too big for the area I want to put it and the low ground spreading ones would be too low.

Seeds are up

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 09:02

I still havent started my tomatoes yet, was going to do them earlier in the year but so glad I didn't. By now they would be leggy with no chance of putting them outside in this weather. Was having trouble with my delphiniums but I think I was overwatering them.
