Where are all the ranters?

Posted: 07/05/2016 at 16:26

If one or two of them could join me in the garage looking for the extension lead for the mower that would be helpful ......... otherwise the lawns will have to wait for tomorrow when OH is sure he'll be able to find it

I suspect they're all outside in the garden like me  ... it's that time of year and that sort of weather

Have been searching garage for the extension cable for lawnmower - in the end I phoned him at work - he says he'll find it and mow the grass tomorrow 


Hosta, have a lovely laksa   glad the knee's improving   BL I'm sure tomorrow will be fabulous 


Wonky, I always had the sneaky suspicion that I was being taken advantage of by one or two of those young men none of whom seemed to have parents with cars

Love them, but don't tell the slugs and snails you're getting some - they'll throw a party

 Thank goodness for that -I thought it was just me   perhaps it's an East Anglian thing 

Invasive Species

Posted: 07/05/2016 at 11:36

The problem is that some people don't care - a next door neighbour at a previous house filled his back garden with Himalayan Balsam - he knew that it was invasive - he was an awkward character who loved the flowers and the bees they attracted.  He didn't give a damn about his neighbours' gardens and he was only renting the house for a few years so he didn't care about the long term effects in the garden either. 


Clematis - Daniel Deronda - odd coloured flower

Ah thanks Fidget - that explains it   I'm a curious person - always wanting to know why 


DD isn't my favourite clematis, but this one was a retirement present from a young person I was involved with through my work - she loves purple :)

Further Advice needed for a good weedkiller for gardens please??

Hopefully Davylovesgravy isn't still waiting for the glyphosate to work - he treated his weeds in 2013 

How often do I water

Posted: 07/05/2016 at 09:27

Open right up during the day - I protect some of my plants that don't like too much sun with sheets of newspaper - I take the sturdier ones out of the growhouse during the day and put them back at night - and only water enough to keep the soil just damp - not sodden. 

Clematis - Daniel Deronda - odd coloured flower

Posted: 07/05/2016 at 09:23

A few days someone posted that their clematis had produced unusual greenish flowers - I can't find that thread  but have just noticed that my Clematis Daniel Deronda (planted 3 years ago) has produced this bloom as its first of the season.


I know some white clematis have a tendency to produce green flowers, but I've not seen Daniel Deronda do this before.


Anyone any idea why?
