Help with planting neighbour's bed

Posted: 14/03/2017 at 13:47

I think I'd go for a planting plan something like the one shown here (scroll down) 

As it's a US site the varieties named may not be available here, but there will be plenty similar available to you.

There shouldn't be much maintenance other than trimming back after flowering, and they should be happy in a south facing site without needing watering.

Looks to me like Fluted Scale insects - a pest - all the info you need here  

It is a weed isn't it?

Looks like one of the willow herbs to me ............. they turn into huge clumps overnight

Hello Mrs Garden    Good to see you ... sounds as if you've had a radical change ... will there be a lot more light now the tree work is done?

When to move seedlings to greenhouse?

I would 

Just have some fleece ready in case of another really cold snap, but fingers crossed we'll be ok.

Sad goodbye

I love trees too GD - I grew up on a farm in a tiny hamlet both named for the ash trees which are so numerous in that area .............. when we came to look at this house and saw  there were mature ash trees in the garden (not really a big enough garden for two ash trees!) we were smitten ... we didn't look at any more houses .........

Sophie Rudd is highly intelligent and funny and happens to be transgender - she received awful online bullying when she was in the first round of UC 

but she went on to win hearts with her impassioned shriek of the right answer with just seconds to spare at the end of the second round 

She's a bit of a star! 

Monkman has also become an online legend  - UC has been the start of many outstanding careers. 

Sad goodbye

Phew!  Glad that it's not you GD '

It's always sad to see  beautiful trees go ... 

Can you plant something in memory of them?
