Goodness Matty!!!  Thank goodness it wasn't yours (I mean, I'm sorry for the other gardener, but you're our Matty).          Phew!!!

Wonky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  But HOW EXCITING!!!!!!

You'll have to show them a Before and After picture, along with dates.  And we'll have to get some pots, bags of compost and some bedding plants

What is this plant please??

Looks like Scabiosa columbaria - aka Little Scabious, Dove's Pincushion, Pigeon Scabious etc.  There are lots of different ones, just a few here

What is this plant please??

Signing in and out

Posted: 03/06/2015 at 14:46

Something happened to me the other day and I had to sign in for the first time for ages, the problem was that it wouldn't let me - I had to go 'around the houses' to get back in - fortunately I managed it.

It might be something your anti-virus software has done at an update - or maybe you could contact the web team to see if there's something different happened their end.

Flowers for March

Posted: 03/06/2015 at 12:44

 This photo was taken in early March, albeit after a very cold winter. 

Crocus Snow Bunting planted 3 deep and as close as possible in a pot of multipurpose compost and left outside in a quiet corner over winter.

I would just place it in a shady corner outside and leave it alone.  I think it's either pupating or dieing.  Nothing you do will change the outcome of either process. 

Nature is so fascinating.

Walnut Tree, but no walnuts

Walnut trees,  like apples, pears etc, often experience the June Drop - explained here

spring cabbage

Posted: 03/06/2015 at 10:15

Plant them - you can't leave them as they are - you'll just have cabbage in the summer rather than the spring.

Is it just me?!

Can you take some cuttings from it?  That way it goes on
