Gardening success

Best to start a new, separate thread for your query Tanya. You'll get specific replies that way  

Having said that, I'm not sure your tree would do well unless you're very, very careful about removing it. You also have to be clear to the new homeowners that you intend taking plants -it has to be in the sale conditions. Otherwise you can only take moveable stuff - plants that are potted

Those croissants look good Dove - and I haven't had brekkie yet...

I saw the forecast LP - oh well, back to the usual rain... 

Hope your mist burns away - it's sharp here. Lovely though. Thought about walking again, but I'm trying to be sensible, and the right knee was niggling yesterday on the way down....

Fingers crossed the mutts all behave! 

Filling gaps in beech hedge

Some of the Eleagnus might be ok too - need to beef up the soil probably, and anything planted will need well watered and mulched because of the hedge. 

I think I misunderstood your opening post Andy -  I realise now you're looking for a gap filler and another shrub in front.

fox poo on my rose

Sammy - how about a temporary structure against that wall? Posts and wire along the length of it to give some height. If you can deter it form that entry point, it might look elsewhere for easy pickings. It's a real pain when you have this sort of issue and it takes a bit of resolve to tackle it.

Would one of those cat scarer water things work?

I'm sure a  bit of tlc and chat with Dad will help. Great that she can do that Hosta. Worth it's weight in gold.

Small improvements Hosta - keep at it. Glad you're having a nice time with daughter. 

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

That's when I feel spring has sprung Verd - but it'll be  a while before I can do mine. 

Ground's too hard to do much today - but perhaps as the sun comes through enough, I'll get a few things done. I have some tidying, bonemeal sprinkling and mulching to do in a few places.

I live in hope  

Hydrangea is it too early to prune

I'm leaving mine for a little while Woottie - for the reason Verdun gives. They look a bit rough (which I hate! )  but I don't want to do more harm than good at this stage
