Problems With Honeysuckle - Yellow/brown leaves

Posted: 09/09/2014 at 09:33

I agree with Buddyboy - give it some Fish Blood and Bone in February.

 Honeysuckle is tough - I'm sure it'll be fine.

Well,  I'm back from an early appointment  and the GP is very pleased with me  - BP down, cholesterol not too bad and 3/4 stone lost since I retired 

She said I'm a very good advert for retirement!

Hi Snoodle - what about a few apricot/rust coloured verbascums - they look great with grasses, would give you some 'spires' and would start the flowering off a bit earlier? 

Pruning Cherry laurel

Posted: 09/09/2014 at 07:05

But beware of disturbing nesting birds - cherry laurel hedges are favourite nesting places for blackbirds, goldfinches and many other birds, and in many years nesting continues well into July - this year I've seen active nests in August.

Good morning all   I went out into the garden about half an hour ago and was greeted by a frog hopping across the lawn towards me - we both stopped and looked at each other, then he  plopped into the pond 

Hefty and chums have eaten all their supper and had a party on the terrace again 

Yesterday we watched a beautiful green dragonfly laying its eggs in the plants around the pond - it must have got a bit muddled as it then laid an egg on the lawnmower

There's one waterlily out - bottom left quarter of the pic, directly under the leaf at the tip of the overhanging branch 

compost advice

Yes, but if you stir up the compost regularly they should stop growing, especially when the decomposition really gets going.

What a wonderful scheme 

The renovation of the canal and riverside sounds good too 

Oak tree problems

We get quite a few twigs on the lawn below our big ash trees - we put it down to portly wood pigeons
