Talkback: Growing hebes

Posted: 05/01/2012 at 18:41
Hi Kate, I've got a lovely Hebe growing around the base of a conifer. It came as small plant, now it is really beautiful. When it is in flower it comes out in a white flower, I have no idea what its name is, but it just gets covered in bees, they love it. I have also got purple one growing in a pot that I bought at an auction and that also flowers really well. I don't do a lot to them just trim them back after flowering but they reward me with such a beautiful display. Just lovely.

Talkback: Twelve gardening jobs for Christmas

Posted: 28/12/2011 at 15:44
Quite a few of the things on your list Adam I did a while ago. I thought I would tidy the shed before the cold weather came so I did that back in November. I must admit that when New Year is over and the Christmas decs are put away for another year, I start to get that feeling of excitement about getting out into the garden and sowing seeds again and getting colour back into the garden. As the weather has been so mild, I've still got a rose flowering its socks off. Happymarion you are correct, we are so lucky to have such good gardening weather this time of year.
Happy New Year Everyone.

Talkback: Robins

Posted: 22/12/2011 at 18:08
I've got a Robin that comes into my garden every day, he is always the first one at the feeders in the morning and is always the last to leave in the evening. 4Kate, I have heard that story as well, I agree with you, that is why they are associated with Christmas, and Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a Robin or two.

Talkback: Wind

It's been very windy here in Dorset too. luckily I haven't had anything damaged just a couple of pots blown over. More high winds are forecast for tonight so I've been outside to check that everything is secured, hopefully tomorrow everything should be where it should be.

Gardeners World

I have to say I have really enjoyed Gardeners World, and the Christmas Special on Friday was very good. I really miss it when its not on. Monty you are brilliant, well done. I have to agree with Gracelane, Geoff Hamilton was also a great gardening presenter and greatly missed.

Happy Christmas to you all.  

Talkback: Planting bulbs

I've never grown Nerines so this will be a challenge. I hope I am going to be able to them for a long time, sorry to hear that yours didnt last gardengirl6. They are just so pretty when in bloom and just what you need to see on a dull November day.

Hi Emma, that is very helpful thank you very much. I will now keep them until the spring then put them into a nice pot.

How to give feedback about the new site

Posted: 07/12/2011 at 18:07

I really love this new site but had trouble logging in today. Every time I tried to put in my email address a site for the Royal Mint coins came up. The only way round this was to just click on sign in with no email or password in, it then just told me no email address entered and gave the boxes to put it in again, then I was logged on.
