Thanks Passionate.  Currently reinventing new spaces with lots of planting ideas.

Thanks all.  Turns out there were only two colours left in the big pots so we are going with Wild Thyme and White Daisy trimmings.  I also have a few tester pots (Summer Damson, Country Cream) that I've used for butterfly house and bird tables (Willow and Country Cream).

Hi All

We are hoping to paint a new shed and summer house this week (with the offer on at Wickes at the moment hoping to buy today).

We have Cuprinol Willow painted on our dividing fences (divides patio area from main garden), and also used Willow on trellises and bird table.  

We are looking for inspiration from your photos of what we should use.  Thinking of maybe Cuprinol Seagrass or Muted Clay with white painted around window frames etc.

Thanks again.  I'm very grateful I know what it is, that it is healthy and that I can watch it mature and thrive.  

My garden is very sentimental and became quite overgrown so I'm finding my way through everything slowly.

Oh wow, that was super quick!  Thank you so much.  I guess the spots are normal then, I'll leave it be.  Oops!

Hi All

This plant is growing in my garden.  I don't quite know what it is.  It used to have some white spots on the branches/leaves so I have tried to take away most of these and the plant seems to be growing back healthier.  I have not ever seen any flowers on it.  It is evergreen.  

I would be grateful for any help.



Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

I think I've been naughty.  I have a right mess of mixed up pots of plants not doing so well.  This includes hyacinths that have not developed at all apart from a few spindly flowers.  I think they were too compacted so I have separated them from the pot they were in and put them into something bigger with some better soil and feed.  I now have a massive pot of hyacinths which I am looking forward to seeing and smelling next spring.  

I've also found rogue daffs in other pots so have reorganised them all.  

I understand they may not develop this year but I'm hoping I have done right for the future.

Such lovely photos.  Tried to 'quote' some but it doesn't work for some reason.

Are some of you really having snow?  Brrr.  

I've been spring cleaning and managed to clean two greenhouses.  This was yesterday.
