Front Garden

Posted: Yesterday at 18:01

I'd agree with the previous post Richard - some bigger gravel will help - the fine stuff is beautiful but it just looks like cat litter to felines unfortunately 

Sarcococca would be one of my choices for that situation as well as the yew and box.  I have some of the prostrate Gaultherias which are evergreen and have berries through the winter. They would look smart surrounding more structural evergreens like  pillars of yew or box balls/cones.

Tomatoes in grow bags

Posted: Yesterday at 16:44

Hi Jane, I don't use growbags but many people  use a string tied to the roof of the greenhouse instead of a cane  and you wind it round the string as it grows. The other end is is in the bag and the plant holds it in place.  Or you could use one of those 'bottomless' pots for tomatoes which is inserted into the bag - it gives a greater depth of compost for the plants. You could then have the cane in that. If you don't want to buy those, you could make your own using a plastic pot with the bottom cut out 

My new garden...suggestions appreciated.

Brilliant Sessi 

 I think I'd be concerned about trying to remove the roots anyway. They'll be huge. Keeping some of it and turning it into a sculpture is a great idea - and what a talking point!

You'll not need much extra planting - everyone will be captivated by your Hobbit house/sculpture!

Lily - it grows like a weed here so if you want some I'd be happy to send it to you free of charge! 

Oh - and an industrial stapler for the badges....

Back to work in a moment. Someone is leaving so there's cake to be had. Glad I've left some room for it....

Gardening with the enemy

Exactly my point OL. As the supposedly superior race, we should know better but sadly, many don't.

Scott- what is the matter with these cretins!! Good for you to hang on in there. What message do they send their children if they have any. Rabbits, foxes, slugs, snails, weevils and lily beetles are nothing compared to horrible humans and the things they do.
