Another nursery supplying semi-mature trees is this one - I've found them very helpful in the past - why not give them a ring?

Which Cornish Garden to visit in September?

Posted: 13/09/2015 at 07:51

I've long been fascinated by Castle Drogo but have never been - however I don't think this is the trip that will change that. 

We visited the Eden Project a few years ago   but have never been to Heligan or Trelissick - I've a feeling that they'll be the gardens of choice this year, given where we're going to be based - that is if the weather isn't suitable for constant sunbathing and paddling on the beach

Thanks for the ideas everyone

How big do you want these borders to be?  Blackberry bushes and hawthorns grow very big indeed.

If you let us know the space you have perhaps we can make some helpful suggestions

Too late to grow anything in veg patch?

Aquadulce 'Claudia' broad beans can be sown in late October - they'll grow slowly over winter with no need for protection etc, and give you an early crop (around late May) and that way they usually avoid getting black fly

Wont go without a fight....

Will I stay awake for the bobbing up and down and the hornpipe?
