Garden Pictures 2016

Posted: 17/04/2016 at 10:08

  Looking great. Right plant right place David. It's still the best advice.  

Camellias grow readily here as the conditions suit them. I don't think I ever fed mine in previous gardens either, apart from when they were first planted. They get battered by  the elements all too often though, just when they flower, so I haven't put any in this new garden.

Bulbs and how to find tnem?

Posted: 17/04/2016 at 10:03

A good tip is to make a little cage of chicken wire or something similar to place over an existing patch of bulbs Paul. Other plants will grow round and disguise it.

I'm not usually that organised though, so I often have the same result as nut and fidget....

Chaenomeles Leaf Problems

Is it getting damaged by wind ommthree? Being on a balcony, it suggests it's higher up and that can often be an issue. It can dry foliage out very quickly.

Thought for Lyn

I've only just seen your sad news Lyn. Thinking of you and your family. You've had such a difficult and stressful time. 

Your walk will have helped enormously. Gives you time to reflect and remember all the nice little times and your night time chats with him. xxx

Morning all. A bit absent yesterday - had to come back early from my walk as I didn't feel well. I was struggling early on but pushed on till I realised it was daft. Had to lie down when I got home. Always  next week.

I've just seen Lyn's sad news too. Thinking of you Lyn. You couldn't have done more than you did. I doubt anyone could. Sending you a huge virtual hug xxx

Everyone seems so much farther on with pricking out seeds but it's nice to hear and see all your activities- love the mouse puzzler chicky  

RB - contact the mods if someone is contacting you by PM and they will hopefully attend to it. It's an all or nothing thing otherwise. 

doc - know exactly how you feel about the neighbour but try and rise above it. Be better than him, as we all know you are.

Morning all - hope you got that sleep Lyn. You cope so well with it all - you're a credit to both your parents. xxx

Greta news for you all too chicky - my friend's dad had a serious inherited heart condition and when it all came to a ahead, they discovered that, because he was so fit (former Marine) his heart created it's own bypass. At least you know what's happened and how it's being treated. I expect you'll have slept better last night too

Just leaving in a few moments to walk so I hope you all have a grand day. Think the car windscreen needs scraped first though ...

I'll need a simmitt or summat on the summit...

My seeds are only sown recently so that they're sturdy enough to put out by the time it's warmer. Nothing tender

Would you like the loan of a simmitt Verd?
