 Hosta   a little something for your Lovely Hub and to remind us all that Brucie really was a huge talent and not just a cheezy presenter

Does anyone know what this is?

Looks like Sedum spectabile ... when the flowerbuds open the bees and butterflies will love it.

...except for the ones who live at the side of my pond.  Must be some kind of swamp ant!


See original post

 We also have an ants nest at the side of our pond ... but that area is raised and quite dry.  We often watch the blackbirds 'anting' on it.

Pour a bucket of water slowly over it ... give it a really good soaking ... they like dry soil to build their homes, so if you keep the area damp they'll move on.

I think I'm giving up on lilies in pots ( 5 minute wonder this "summer" ), but very into water lilies.


See original post

 We made the same decision this summer ... well, the first half of it anyway ... no room for water lilies in our little pond.  

Old rose bush looks awful, pruning ideas please

Have you got any roses of your own?  If so, when you're about to prune yours could you pop your head over the fence and say something like "I'm just going to give my roses a good seeing to and a dose of fertiliser... would you like me to do the same to yours while I'm about it?"


A mug of tea and a slice of home made cake and a discussion about  gardening, and a neighbour can become a friend

Fingers very crossed Hosta ((hugs))


Driving past accidents .. not nice 


Glad you got yourself a treat ... I went to the garden centre but managed to resist everything except what I went for ... hedgehog food and a birthday card.     I nearly succumbed to an echinacea but the colour just wasn't quite right ...

Totally agree Posy ... if the poster is reasonable bendable and can kneel a few hours each day ... or over a couple of weekends, should do the job.  Quiet, contemplative work ... just as good as meditation.
