How to improve drainage

Posted: 16/05/2014 at 12:17

Hi Denno

I'd use an unglazed terracotta pot (old fashioned flower pot type) with a bit of broken pot over the hole in the bottom - then I'd mix 2 parts of John Innes No 3 loam-based compost with one part of horticultural grit.  

That should keep your marjoram happy.

Three feet tall won't stop neighbours from looking over - will it 

No idea how to start on overgrown garden

Hi Nicole - congratulations on forthcoming baby   We'll do our best to give you some good advice but some of it will be to rest and put your feet up 

Can you take some pictures of the garden to give us a better idea of your options?

To post pics on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar at the top of where you type your post and follow the instructions - don't think it works from a phone - yet. 

Where are YOU?

Hi nin - I was born in Hitchin Herts, lived in Beds but parents moved us to Suffolk when I was 4 years old - all the rellies thought we might just as well have been moving to Outer Mongolia! Now they all want to move to East Anglia 

to me it is a mistery

Hi Neil   Big Shooting Stars fans here   Plus our garden's full of pigeons and doves 

Agree that the second looks like a geranium, but don't think the first is fennel - the structure looks wrong to me.  Fennel has a very angular structure with 'branches' going off alternate sides, then the ferny leaves having leaflets in opposite pairs.  

I'm wondering if it's Nigella aka Love in a Mist
