My Bristol Garden in 2015

Posted: 20/07/2015 at 13:28


Hi Marion,

I live in Horfield and would love to visit you and see your plants sometime.  I think plants do have flesh of sorts! The above picture is of my back garden which is all paved and has raised beds. Our front garden is long and skinny and does have a patch of grass.  We love seeing wildlife in the garden and have regular visits from various birds ( the gold finches are my favourites at the moment) and a couple of squirrels.

I had best get back to work!!!

Hello Marion,

I went to the talk given by Monty yesterday too, I really enjoyed it and he was such an engaging speaker - I could have listened to him all day.

It was my first visit to the Botanic Gardens even though I have lived in Bristol all my life and Wow what a gem, the gardens were spectacular and the buildings were amazing not at all what I expected.

I have been following your posts for ages and look forward to reading them when I can.

I have a very tiny but colourful garden, my passion is growing vegetables for my rabbit which I grow in a veg trug due to lack of space.

Our back garden is a postage stamp , all paved with raised beds on three sides.

I dream of having a normal garden with grass and  space for a shed.

Front garden is very long and narrow with a wonky tree!

Having said that all looks rather pretty at the moment

I like cats and love seeing them in gardens (including my own) but I don't like the deposits they leave .  I'm not sure why the local cats find our garden so appealing and use it as a litter tray, I get very disheartened at times as they even get in my veg trug.

Thanks Salino, I made it for Easter and it was rather nice!

It was your instructions I used to upload the photo, I had often wondered how to do it

Thanks Italophile, I am keeping the cuke warm and I wont plant him out for a while yet.

He did loose a few leaves, but has side shoots sprouting and has doubled in height.

Fingers crossed

Cucumber plant update - its not looking any worse!

Should I cut off the shrivelled leaves?

I knew they liked being warm, but didn't appreciate they like moist air - thanks Joyce Goldenlily

Milk and water for mildew, great tip - thanks Marshmello

Thanks Lilylouise

I did wonder if it was feeling the cold, so before leaving for work this morning I moved it to a warmer windowsill, I do hope it recovers.  I have never attempted cues before, good luck with yours
