Paint colour for this wall?

Posted: 08/09/2016 at 10:28

Green is fine for oil tanks - it's the giant plastic bit that's a problem! 

And white and cream flowers would be beautiful in front of it....

Sorry Gal2 - we seem to have taken a slightly different course on your thread...

Autumn Lawn Feed Question

Posted: 08/09/2016 at 09:46

Normally you need a few days after mowing before applying so perhaps check the product first. The spring/summer ones recommend that anyway.

How weedy is your lawn? If it's not bad, you might be as well waiting till spring, and starting a good programme of weeding and feeding, but it does depend on your climate and conditions. If you feel it will be warm enough for the next month or so, I'd reckon you can apply it as the grass will get a chance to recover and grow on a bit  before winter. It's more of an issue if the area you're in doesn't get much rainfall.

I never remember to do autumn feeds

I don't have any fuchsias LP. Do you mean the broom behind the Phormium?

It's my favourite plant in the garden Joyce - Phormium Cream Delight. Mine is in a west facing border, so it gets sun through the main part of the day.

They take a bit of shade, but you might lose the variegation if there's too much.

Turned your pic for you LP

Pretty display

I slightly agree with Hosta on this - for me the standout thing to address is the oil tank!

Ooh - think I've slightly misunderstood - thought the OP already had a Mahonia in situ....
