Quick Growing Hedge/Conifers?

Posted: 30/01/2017 at 08:57

That will involve a lot of large pots - what watering facilities do you have? 

Also, top heavy pots are going to blow over in a windy spot.

Can you post a photo of the site to give us some idea of your options?

Good morning all  G'day Pat 

Damp and grey here and I think it's probably milder than it has been of late, but as I'm still in bed it's hard to tell. 

Fairy ((hugs)) 

I did the Birdwatch yesterday - more birds than previous years and a good range - good to see a greenfinch, lots of  blackbirds, a pair of robins, lots of goldfinches and chaffinches but the dunnocks and long tailed tits kept hidden. 

Beloved succulent taken to sick bed: help?

I agree - it looks like a crassula - I also agree with the advice given. They hate combined cold and wet. They also need good natural light levels, especially in the winter. Is it on a bright windowsill?

Glad you all seem to have had a lovely day. We've been bone idle and are likely to fall asleep on the sofa at any minute. 

Its raining here - it seems ages since we had proper rain ...

Good morning all  Just surfacing here. Not back until the wee small hours due to drunken trespassers on the line  apart from that we had a fantastic day - great good, lovely company and I've come home with a bag full of presents to open 

Must make more coffee ... 

Please help identify this tree?

That was my first thought too Hosta.

Good point Posy ... If children might be part of the plan, a bog garden will attract wildlife, but without the risks to little explorers.

The area at the far end of the path? I'd plant it with shrubs, ferns and native perennials to make a 'wilderness' with a wildlife pond ... Have  a seat, even an

'arbour' where you can sit and watch the birds and other wildlife that will

be attracted to an area like that. 

Thats what I've done with what was a scrubby area under trees.
