I absolutely agree with Fidget. It will look brutal, but that's how wisteria perform best.

You're lucky they didn't call a robot in to blow it up!

I remember my panic when I got home and realised I'd left my handbag and purse in the trolley in the trolley park at Tesco in the dark late one evening. 

I phoned immediately and they said it'd been handed in. 

When I got back there they said a young lad who collects the trolleys had handed it in - I bought him a big box of Cadbury Heroes - he was really chuffed   So was I

Yew Hedge at Back of Border

Posted: 14/04/2016 at 09:43

Hi Larkspurlady

Unless the border will be to the north of the yew hedge I can't see a problem.  Christopher Lloyd's wonderful garden at Gt Dixter is chock-a-block with yew hedges with wonderful borders in front of them. 

Of course the bed needs to be nice and deep and regularly fed and mulched, with lots of room so that your shrubs and perennials aren't actually growing 'under' the hedge ... but you've said it's a large border so all should be fine.  It sounds really appropriate for the setting.  I'd love to see photos - very jealous of a walled garden!

Still overcast and damp here ... I've got a few jobs to do then will go and sit with Ma for an hour or so.  If I time it for lunch time it means the staff can concentrate on helping the rest of the residents with their lunches.

Ribes

Have a look at Ribes sanguineum 'Brocklebankii' - it has pink rather than the more usually seen red flowers - it also has golden leaves and needs semi-shade - it's a very pretty plant.

Good morning all

Lyn, the midazolam should have given your father a restful night with no anxiety or bad dreams.  Hope you got plenty of sleep too. 

It's a relatively mild morning - nearly 8C in the garden - the heating isn't on and OH seems not to have noticed - the sky's overcast tho'.
