Lily beetles

Posted: 24/05/2015 at 10:50

I  squished loads earlier in the season - they were appearing as soon as the Crown Imperials surfaced, but I've got two big bowls full of lilies in bud and haven't seen a lily beetle for over a week - but I'm still looking

There must've already been a Chelsea garden using staddle stones - it's only an extension of that - and wouldn't it be fabulous!?

What is this tree?

Wow!  Even with blurry vision - has to be a good guess rather than real identification

HELLO FORKERS!

Wow Panda!  What a social life you're having!  Hope the weather holds and everyone has a lovely day (and life etc) and that all goes well on your foreign adventure - is Bernard going with you?

How and Why does my lawn grow so high??

Posted: 24/05/2015 at 09:51

Lawns need mowing at least once a week, sometimes twice a week in the growing season.  That'll stop clumps and nettles. 

If you paid good money to have a lawn laid it's worth your while to look after it.

The Shedlet doesn't arrive until Tuesday - we will have a grand opening with cake and alcofrolics - it will come already painted and erected (hope it'll squeeze down the side path!). 

Having seen the pile of tools it's going to be expected to house, the Undergardener/Artist is going to make a sign to go over the door 'The Tardis'

What wisteria do, and what they should be doing, can sometimes be very different

Getting a good show from them relies on getting the pruning right.   But let's wait and see what it is before we go there - it might be an ash, as Nut says.
