Is this a weed

Posted: 30/05/2014 at 21:12

I forget which one it is but it's a weed in my garden...

Evening all. Turned out lovely so I've been out all day after taking daughter for an appointment - potting on and moving stuff and planting etc etc. Daughter has done a splendid roast for dinner so you could have come round here MrsG.  Not much of it left now though...

Hope all those having cruddy times have a better weekend. We can try to make you laugh perhaps. 

Dunnock city here Dove. I have lots in the garden - I'll trade some for a few blackbirds. They are proving to be elusive but hopefully that will change. Can you get me some pots too? I seem to spend a lot of time just now shifting plants to bigger pots to get the small ones for something else and then doing a lot of washing 

The only trouble with Heuchera Lime marmalade is that it looks a bit like lettuce  I got a couple of them last summer in 3" pots at the nursery for a few quid. They're now big plants (about 1' all round) and about to flower.

What's your acronym? A guessing game......

Janet Webb - she was brilliant wasn't she?

Gloire de Marengo and Sulphur Heart are two variegated ivies which will lighten a dark area without being too rampant.

Hydrangeas welcome some shade chicken chaser. There are lots of perennials and shrubs which will grow well in containers and raised beds in shade, so if you want to have a variety there are lots of choices. Hardy geraniums will tolerate trickier sites and give you a long flowering season

Hebe Vernicosa -

 There's a little one called Green Globe (or Emerald Green sometimes) which is a lovely little 'box ball' shape

Heard that too KEF. Next week they'll tell us it's eating apples or driving at night  that causes it.  

Porridge, blueberries and a little banana for me Verd. Toast as well would be a bridge too far. I think you should have a lie down and pace yourself for later...

Not very warm here and very cloudy. Perhaps it'll improve

I'll try MrsG. I'll fit it in between doing my own weeding, digging holes, planting more hedge, cooking, cleaning, ironing and ....oh who am I kidding. I'll be faffing around and drinking a lot of tea...

Smile's looking good

I'm confused....It's all too much for my little brain 

 I'll just say - for those of you who remember the big lady at the end of the Morecambe and Wise show - G,AILYA....

Few problems, help?

Ah - at least you've got the answer. 

You need a new under gardener Dabble 

Good luck with them from now on!
