It's turned quite grey and dreary outside here in Norfolk - the wind has got up and the heating has come on. 


Wrap up warm Fairy, Joyce, LirI, Lily P and anyone else in northern parts. .... Speaking of which, I hope Bushman is ok ((hugs))

Bridals Wreath Spirea problem

Posted: 16/03/2017 at 15:47

The leaves do look like spirea ... maybe it's been there a very long time and the trees weren't big enough to shade the bed back then?


Rather than have to move it, have you thought about taking cuttings?  It strikes quite well from softwood cuttings, and I've been  told that you can layer it too although I've not tried it.

Don't get chilled in the wind Joyce - sit on the sofa with me - I'll put the kettle on - there's crumpets for later

I just picked a load of perpetual spinach and Swiss chard to have for supper, and found ........... A PAIR OF CANOODLING LILY BEETLES!!!   in my veg patch??????????? 

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Posted: 16/03/2017 at 14:41

I've dug everything out of the bigger half of the herb bed (including some tree roots which are closer to the house than I'd like them to be!)- the clumps forming a border of Chinese chives are in a large container in the shade waiting to be replanted.  At the weekend OH will dig the big containers of mint out of the end of the bed so that I can rejuvenate them and replant, this time in what has proved to be the damper end of the bed.  I've got some sage cuttings waiting to go in the dryer end.  


I've hoed the weeds from around the broad beans - they're looking great - 8-10" tall and nice and sturdy, and I've also planted some liatris spicata in the sunny bed.  


I've also picked a load of perpetual spinach and Swiss chard to go with sticky Asian-style beef ribs and noodles for our supper.  


Now my back is beginning to complain (think that's because of the tree roots) and the sky is clouding over, so I'll call it a day and put my feet up in front of the Cheltenham Festival and get my knitting out.
