I knew there was some sort of punishment for going to the GC twice in two days! I'm stuck in the car park waiting for thd Green Flag man to come and rescue me ... i think that fuse has blown again   Garage couldn't find anything wrong when if blew a month or so ago, but ...

The lads are back - the Skyrockets have been replaced by fastigiate yews ... possibly 'Standishii' - far more appropriate for that garden.


However, the white lilac, which is just bursting into bloom, is being felled and shredded ... some people have no soul 


I have to go to the GC now to get more module inserty thingies for my pricking out ......... can I pick up something for someone?  

Laurel Hedging Issues

I agree with Lyn .... reduce their height by half - you'll get a nice thick hedge from top to bottom that way, rather than thick at the top and bare stems at the bottom. 

Chicken sabotage!

Mmmm  young men, tipper truck, shredder and Juniper Skyrockets have disappeared  ... climber remains propped up by back door ....... have the junipers been rejected by neighbours?  I did think they would look rather incongruous in their garden which is smaller than ours ...........

I've got some stuff to do out the front too Joyce .............. but I think I'd better get on with pricking out the tomatoes ... the stuff in the front will have to wait.

Tomatoes shouldn't be fed until the first truss of flowers has set fruit.

We don't have any curtains Joyce ................. large windows with wooden blinds a bit like these http://www.wooden-blinds-direct.co.uk/stores/product/premier_simply_natural_venetian_blind 


Uninterrupted view out but they can't see in - but if we're having any work done it's amazing how often their side garden needs weeding -  They're very nice tho' - we like them - always happy to take a parcel in etc.
