They're so easy to grow from little bits you pull off ppauper, and fill out very quickly.

If you need some - go on the Seed Swap thread - loads of people will be willing to send you some bits and bobs

Pat - the NY  (norwegian forecast) is used by lots of hillwalkers here for weather! Most use two or three and take the law of averages. This weekend it's the one saying sunny for today while the others have cloud and rain and lousy visibility,  so needless to say - I'm going walking tomorrow! 

Brunnera macrophyla 'Jack Frost'.

I'd love to use them because the foliage is a great foil for other things, but I hate those blue flowers   

All different aren't we?

Morning all. Cloudy and dampish here 

Do you mean Chinese Cafe/ Unchained Melody LP? I'm a big Joni fan - it's a stunning song. Makes Unchained Melody sound brilliant instead of that God awful version that's always trotted out 

Hope chicky has a great weekend - I expect she's already left

I'm off in a minute to take daughter to the train station. She going to Comic Con in the SECC with her friends . They'll get strange looks on the train with the costumes....

Hosta - are you asleep now? I said... ARE YOU ASLEEP NOW?

I'm not having a funeral so there'll be no clapping and no singing. In fact I've told them all if they have a funeral for me...I'm not coming! I can't believe they called me a grumpy old git. Rude!


Are you just getting chucked in the wheelie bin ppauper?   

I'm also considering The Crazy World of Arthur Brown ... with

Deep borders

I like a green sward too but grass can also be time consuming so I can see the other side of the debate.  

Get off the fence fairy 

When I lived round the corner from this house, the back garden was just grass when we moved in - all on a sideways slope. After we built an extension and it altered the size and shape of the garden, I terraced it and we had no grass - just different areas of planting and it was very effective. 

I've just added a lawn in the back garden here but I've also created lots of new borders and planting areas. You can have your cake and eat it - even in a small-ish space

Why? Stylish burning? Grave accuracy?


 That made me laugh Steve!

Deep borders

With smaller plants you would normally plant in groups of 3, 5, 7 etc if you needed to fill a large border. In fact, that still applies with bigger plants too.  

Use repeat planting on along border as well
