Hi.

Being a novice gardener I would like to ask if anyone has some advice on whether or not I could use a brand new large slanted grit container to grow herbs in? 

 

Many thanks in advance.....

The RHS website has a plant finder facility that lists suppliers by area.

The RHS Plant Finder lists just 2 nurseries for this plant, both in Cumbria. They both supply plants by mail order:

and

Thanks for all your replies guys. I previously found one on www.treetyme.co.uk but they're out of stock. Also, I just checked www.larchcottage.co.uk and they're not taking any orders for deliveries as from today until september time.. (just my luck that I missed out of their deadline..!!). I'm back to square one now....

Thanks for your advice obelixx - I'll bear that in mind if I ever manage to locate one.!!

I am trying to locate a "cercis canadensis pauline lily' - preferably in or around Essex if possible. Any info would be much appreciated.

I crush cardboard egg boxes up and add them to my compost - never thought to add newspaper though until Frank mentioned it. A senior moment I think they call it..!!

Many thanks for your info Frank - also to you other guys too for your useful input.

Having had the recent downpours here in Essex there's still no sign of the hosepipe ban being lifted just yet so using the free news papers that regularly drop through my door each week seems like a good option - along with the 6 full water butts staggered around my garden (one of which was supplied by the waterboard for free in a water saving campaign they were running last year)..!! 

Mant thanks

TREE - Laburnum x watereri 'Vossii

Posted: 01/05/2012 at 19:46

Wow - thanks for all that information Gold1locks. It's been very usefull to me.

I'm a gardening novice (to a degree) and inherited a beautiful well stocked garden (mainly of an array of established shrubs - some of which I still havven't fathomed out what they are!) when I bought my home 2 years ago.

There was a beautiful elegant tree (don't know what type it was) of about 8 - 10ft high that was growing happily away at approximately 6ft away from the corner of my bungalow, but I "lost" it when we had the last lot of snowfall here. It's left a fairly big gap in the sounding area since I cut it down and was really looking for something to replace it with.

The gap where I'm looking to fill has a surrounding 8ft variegated laurel, an 6ft Red Robin, and an ornamental tree of some description (don't know what type that is either!!) Have you any suggestions what I could try growing there please? The area has sunlight in the morning but is shaded for the most part of the day - if that's any help??!!

As for your comment about my font - I wasn't aware that it shows up any different to yours as it all looks the same to me here..!! Hopefully I wasn't "shouting"..!! 

Many thanks

Dizzi.

Thanks for you input Paul. I envy you for being able to spend more time in the garden due to retirement..!!
