Garden Update

Posted: 20/05/2017 at 09:15

If it was my garden I'd do exactly that Hosta ... but if I remember correctly DFW has two small children who need to run around and burn off some energy so for the time being he'll have to make some compromises ...........

Morning Hosta     enjoy the gardening ... maybe have 40 winks after lunch (but set an alarm so you don't overdo it). 

Garden Update

Have a look at Campsis radicans ... we have 'Flamenco' against a fence in a sunny corner ... gorgeous once it gets going ... initially it needs trellis or wires to cling to, but as it matures it develops little adventitious roots that cling to the wall

There is also a yellowy/cream coloured variety.

Yes, Common Ash ............ pull it out .................. our garden would be a forest if we didn't keep our eyes open for these every year.  

Amelanchier best kind

Posted: 20/05/2017 at 08:32

Last year we planted a multi-stemmed Amelanchier lamarckii ......... it's gorgeous and is doing really well ... lots of colour last autumn and it was covered with blossom last month and now loads and loads of berries are forming for the birds later on.  As our garden isn't large, we chose a multi-stemmed tree so that in future we can take the odd stem out if it gets too big ......... it also works well with the informal wildlife-friendly style we have here.

Good morning everyone 


LB your picture looks a bit like the view out of my back door ..... well, it being Norfolk I don't have mountains, tumbling streams and pine clad slopes ... but I do have raindrops everywhere sparkling in the sunshine ... think it's going to be a gardening weekend .......

Good morning everyone


Oh LilyP ((hugs))  take care ... hope it's better very soon!


I've just popped the tomatoes and courgettes out onto the terrace to get some sunshine ... they don't really get enough light when they're crammed into the little greenhouse like they were all yesterday ... but I may have to rush out and pop them back in again if we get a heavy shower .......some are forecast later on.

Think they're just too cold. Tomatoes need consistent overnight temperatures of at least 14C before they're planted outside.

I have that book Bee G. It's been one of my favourites for many years ... Some of the planting associations illustrated in if are really lovely; I used to know one of the artists who illustrated the book.
