Good morning all

Very mild out there for the time of year - yesterday's top temp was 11.6C  last night's lowest was 9.0C.

An exciting day out today - going with Topbird to hear a talk by Cleve West

Modern Technology etc.

Talkback: Plants for dry shade

I find that my pulmonaria struggle a bit in the dry area under my trees - they need watering quite frequently during dry spells.  They're much happier in the damper area near the pond.

I blame you lot! 

I've just hunted out the old wire frame I used to use and ordered some more florists winding wire and wire stubs.  Now I've got to hunt out some holly and ivy on a walk down to the marshes .... I shall start from scratch this year!

.........  It will be a bit lighter there next year as well Dove, that should help. Some big laurels went through the shredder

Right, that makes sense - I thought something was different .

It's just too boggy to do anything out there in my garden at the moment  - and we're on free draining sandy loam

You've probably seen these on the website, but I've posted the links in case you haven't.

I've not made one from scratch for ages, when the children used to help me and it was more about what they wanted than how it looked. 

What I do now is to buy a plain holly wreath from the market, and then add to it and alter it.  I don't have enough evergreens in the garden to make the base, but I have enough bits and bobs and things in the house to prettify a plain one.
