Hi Dove. Hope you are well and sleep tight with perfect dreams.

How's the Daughter?

Hope all is well , with her and you (Sorry That just sounds nasty and that is 100% from what I wanted to say.)

It's been some time but I have not forgotten about you, both?. It's all been too long and I miss other people.

Are you both still here and in charge?.

I don't have much battery but thought of you and  you would know.

Time to cut the roses now Dove. (frost permitting)

Happy spring

I'm pretty much starting from scratch on the front garden, it is just stripped back to bare mud at the moment. 

I have considered planting something other than grass as a lawn. It never gets walked on, and previously the lawn was very mossy and weedy It is on a slight slope and partial shade.

Does anyone have a lawn that is not grass?



See original post

 Yes we DO!

Your situation is just about perfect.

You must have heard about the sweet smelling  Chamomile lawn !!! 

You can now get a low growing Chamomile lawn ( it's not to low but the affect and low maintenance and will take your cutter down to 3 or 4 times a year. You will want to do it twice a week in growing season  I promise you. 

Loads of my clients want this for lack of maintenance over the years and it's great.

It has proved itself to me but? It needs to be germinated and grow the seed on first. I have done this many times. Some work some do not. ( Im not sure why after 40 years) 

It's a bit like a hair transplant / but not?

It takes effort and time + seed to grow The lawn you want.

Please have a go.

It takes 2 years in the greenhouse before you could possible plant at 2" apart to get a lawn.

PS. Sorry That is why I Had to change.

Chamaemelum nobile dwarf


How good is that un cut lawn

 I'll bl**dy punch you Clarington if you has not made a better life /situation of yourself

Miss you and some others. 

Time is tight and expensive, for me. The Snow drops are through and so are the Daffs and Crocuses.

Blackthorn blossom abound for sloe this year and looking to have a good year (if no more frost) Cherry blossom is abound and we can start to get some Vit D back. Not eating Sea food for 200 years is a huge downer then? They do not have robots to find where the coil has gone!!!¬

Theresa Mary May... (lovely name!) After stalling and taking a second breath thought it was good for us!!!!!! 

Was it for us of £???

It's time to cut your rose bush/plants down unless you believe the frost will keep off. ( I do as it's a warmer place now? Is that bragging???)

Hope you all have a perfect year and don't fall in the sea. ( I'm still  training)

Kind regards.

Proffessional garden design - worth it?

Posted: 19/01/2017 at 22:56


Believe me you are the Professional garden design!

All you need is some help with bringing your ideas to fruition and if that take some labour with love then ask the person who us digging the hole every day.

Some Architects are out of work now and could not stack a pile of stones on a stack of bricks but some labourers have hidden talents that work out beautiful as they do this every day.

7 years for a A4 piece of paper does not beat 7 years digging your garden and trying to get it right.

Yes I obviously omitted the ££££££ but who is happier ?

What material to use for raised veg box

Posted: 30/12/2016 at 00:17

No Aster2.

As you say the weed suppressing membrane lets the water through so you might have to repaint every few years but the timber should be good, for a lot longer.

It's not my pup!!!!

The apology came after the pic.Topbird!

Get over it and press ignore as this is a free site.

I told you years ago that I'm as blunt as a breeze block and may often offend.

It will all be gone by tomorrow as I report myself. That is humour. Perhaps you should try some?
