Flippin 'eck Hosta ... you have been busy!!!!!  What a difference since we were there in June last year 

Need help with conifers

Posted: 19/08/2017 at 12:53

I suspect that in the past there may have been a third tree growing close to the others and preventing the growth of 'leaves' on that part of the tree.  

The third tree has been felled for some reason, revealing the bare branches of the tree that was next to it (they won't grow 'leaves' if they're deprived of sunlight because of the proximity of another tree).  

However I think they have a wonderful sculptural quality and would be perfectly happy to leave them if the rest of the tree is healthy.  

I.D Please :)

Keble-Martin is a wonderful resource   I've had mine for 40+ years and it's in constant use.

The 'stiff breeze' we have here today is resulting in this garden looking more windswept than tousled ... but it is getting the washing dry

Hosta ... don't go overdoing it ... I love the 'slightly tousled' look in a garden

Loved that steel retaining wall   

Love liver too and we often have it here ... my little gardening granny used to have to eat raw liver sandwiches ... Victorian cure for anemia apparently 

One load on the line and another in the machine ... the clouds are clearing and there's more than enough blue to make a sailor a pair of trousers, so I've changed the bedlinen.

Post Honey Fungus

I would get on with replanting right away ... I know several lovely gardens which have honey fungus in them ... there are lots of lovely plants which don't seem to be affected.
