And my front lawn is undergoing it's second year of 'restoration' following having 3 builder's skips and some Big Bags of sand and gravel on it for a considerable period of time.

I will turn it back into a lawn without having to dig it up and start again - I will - I will! 

What to do with rhubarb?

Yes, I'll give mine another feed of Fish Blood & Bone in a week or so, and another in the autumn before  I mulch it with manure.

It might, but what about slugs? 

Honeysuckle problem.

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 08:22

I'm afraid that it in the nature of the plant.  Honeysuckle is a woodland plant that scrambles up through the undergrowth to the hedge and treetops to reach the sun where it flowers.  It's not good at being thick and leafy at the base. Coupled with that, it really likes its roots to be cool and damp - this is difficult in a container.  

My best suggestion would be to plant some herbaceous perennials in front of it to hide the lower stems.

Hope that's helpful.

Help to tidy up garden borders

Hi Justin   What a lovely garden 

As Artjak says, weeding's the main thing to do at the moment, with a bit of cutting back for some plants after they've flowered, to encourage them to flower again this summer.  

Also if they've not had any fertiliser this year a top dressing of Fish Blood & Bone (according to directions on the pack) and water that in if you don't get a good downpour in the next few days, will also encourage flowering into the autumn.

Can I suggest that you take pics of each flower/plant and make a list of what you've got - then we can give you more help if you need it?

If you can't identify the plants that's no problem - post pics on here and we'll have a go!

You'll have to wait until I've had my shower and got dressed!
