Tree for the garden

Posted: 13/06/2015 at 08:08

Enjoy your tree Llubber 

Some nice climbers will be great for screening that fence - a few shrubs will give you year round interest and the birds and insects will love it all too.

emesmO- we all make mistakes. WillDB's advice is good. Hopefully you can make some progress and any shrub or plant can always be replaced - it's an opportunity to have a little change. It's all a learning curve!

Morning all.

Dove - what a horrible way to start the day. No matter how ill someone is, the shock is still enormous for the people who are close to them. Thinking of you today. Woody -  I know how important your garden is to you - I think Mrs Woody would be very proud of you right now. I hope tomorrow is fine and bright and you have a tremendous day after all the hard work. Just watch out for those visiting forkers pinching your plants.....

Rain hasn't arrived - yet - but I'm sure it will appear at some point. I want to get the ground properly finished to sow grass seed but I need a full day as I'll have to net the whole area 

Thanks for all the good wishes for little fairy. Didn't have any calls from the police so I assume they all got their taxis back to the friend's house where they're all staying overnight. 

More tea needed here.

I love a thunderstorm - we don't get many, so they're even more exciting when they appear. 

Got a bit teary seeing littlest fairy this evening ....stupid old mare 

Did some more bits and bobs and now relaxing. Keep me some of that ice cream Dove - sounds delish 

Off to look round and see what's been going on here today

Lovely pix Dacha - hope you enjoy the forum 

Haven't read everything you've all been doing but will do so later

Been out emptying the compost bin onto a border - off now to take photos of my 'little' girl before she goes to her Prom....I did have a shower first 

Sun's gone so hope it stays dry for now.  

What would look balanced in large ceramic boot?

That's what I was going to say David! 

transplanting peonys

Posted: 11/06/2015 at 07:40

Yes - don't plant too deeply. As sanjy says - prepare the new site thoroughly - a bit of Blood, fish and bone in the planting hole, water the peony well before lifting, and when you lift it, get as large a rootball as possible. Water in well and keep an eye on it till established

Morning all. Lovely here again - wish I wasn't working. The nature of my job means that we're busiest at this time of year so miss spending time outdoors 

I'm sure you can squeeze a teeny tiny bit of rocket in chicky 

I just thought Hosta had been on the curry again...and with Lesley changing her duvet I thought she was the same..... I'm losing the plot....

Was Panda going for a new job? I missed that. As Lesley says - the right one will come. 

Off to work in a few mins - have a good day everyone

Hello and goodbye - not long in from the garden and going to bed in a few mins 

You were right Verd - glorious all day here   May have to sleep with the window open! Just went straight from winter into summer. Light here till about half ten and then dawn comes at about half four or so - like living in Scandinavia 

Will catch up with you all tomorrow. Hope everyone is ok
