and so it goes on Lyn  

Non flowering hydrangeas

That's what I thought too Lyn. 

They need plenty of moisture Vivien, which is why they're not easy to keep in containers. What are your soil conditions and weather patterns like?

Another thought - are you overfeeding? With many plants, you'll get a lot of foliage but less flowers if you do.

Eucomis was my first thought too Hosta 

what does your garden mean to you

doc - it's everything you want it to be and encourages looking forward rather than back. I hope it will do that for you more and more  

I'm with you re being creative Verd. That's really the bit I enjoy most.

HELLO FORKERS!

Hosta - thought you might be  

I missed your post re the hedgehog Dove. What nice neighbours you have to look after him/her 

and raspberries too....

Hedging help please!!

Is it sunny j and h? If so, a row of Hebes would make a good evergreen hedge. Pick one of the smaller varieties like Vernicosa (looks like box) which doesn't get too big (about 2 feet/60 cm)  or Odora - also known as buxifolia because it resembles box. It gets to around a metre I think.

Thought so Verd. I had rose New Dawn in  a previous garden - in a good position where it caught plenty of sun. Could barely smell it even when I stuck my nose right in it! Thought for a while it was just me when people talked about it's great perfume...

HELLO FORKERS!

Hosta  - which are you then -  glass half full or half empty? 

If it's sunny Dove - it's because I waved my wand. Rainy - well, that's Verdi's fault

Clearing up again here. I could plant the new bulbs I bought recently. Daughter told me off for buying them - 'You have loads of those already Mum' 

A nice dark tulip for a pot - Ronaldo,  some Minnow narcissus and a few more Thalia. I love those. 

Silly me

I do that kind of thing all the time too pansyface  

To justify it, I call it multi tasking ....
