My new whips are blackthorn - if the plebs round here won't keep their children/pets out of my garden - I'll keep them out 

Cold wet and windy here today but frost tonight so if the ground's not too solid tomorrow I'll get some in. Glad I stocked up on compost. My own isn't quite ready for use unfortunately but it's looking good.

What's your prezzie Dove? Something expensive I hope

Hello all - I've not gone anywhere just been busy. Internet connection's been a bit flaky last few days so gave up for a while 

My hedge has arrived so I may be gone for some time - 100 whips to put in...

Will try and catch up on posts sometime!

HAve a good day everyone

Some new plants I got recently- Gaultheria procumbens and the Jap Anemones 'Whirlwind' are covered in buds and flowers. The violas are lovely and I still have flowers on an oak leaf hydrangea. Dianthus too.

Good idea tonbro! I put most of my grit and gravel back into beds when I renew the contents of pots as it benefits the drainage on my clay soil. It does mean I have to buy more but I see it as a good outlay. I do the same as Jeannie sometimes - most of my pots are top dressed with grit.

Dove...Dove...DOVE....get up....you've slept in...you'll be late for work!!!!!

Wasn't around last night. Glad you had a lovely day. You'll have lots of time now to enjoy all the other things you like doing. 

When are you making us a cake... 

Morning everyone. New shoots are normal on the Irises Stacey. The old cut leaves will die off (just like perennials) and the new ones  come through.Tons of nice ones on my divided ones, so I'm looking forward to a nice display in summer.

Not a bad looking day here. Hope it stays that way. Have a lovely day everyone.

Serious stuff......no! Really

In the seventies, there was a man who used to come riding where I work called Mr. Tuckey.

His first name was Ken.

I kid you not

I have huge buds on the rhodie at the front door Verd. Alliums all sprouting and the Jap Anems 'Whirlwind' flowering their hats off! Little polyanthus I got for a few quid in spring have  barely stopped flowering all year.

The poor plants are just as confused as we are 

Dinner almost ready - I'm starving. All that grafting's given me an appetite

Glad you had a good time nut. Our walks that weekend made up for it. What made my partner angry was that, as it was a busy time of year, we didn't have many choices of quiet locations in the area, and the blurb for the place was a total pack of lies. He told them when we left though! My 89 yr old Dad could have made a better job of the meal we had that night!
