I know the type.  The falling ones are quite well known Hosta. Hope it settles soon x

Off to t'mill to earn a crust. Catch you all later  

I'm digging a pond by hand...

Steve - you have my sympathy - about removing the pond not the proposing 

It'll take you a while - will you have some help to save your back from too many aches and pains?  The liners are so much easier to deal with though.

Our posts crossed Hosta - I didn't want to tempt fate and mention your sleeping/not sleeping situation! Great to lose the weight - I expect the weird dreams will gradually go, but it can be difficult to deal with when they're so vivid.

Morning all - where's Pat - is she ok?  

Our nice alpine spell is over - back to rain and wind. Oh well....

Hope all goes well in your new ventures Edd. What's that saying about one door closing...

Glad you had a good time with Charlie DD  

Grow bags, where are they?

Posted: 08/03/2016 at 07:53

I think it's possibly a little early ddaisy. Most people use them for tomatoes which wouldn't be at the stage for grow bags just yet. Probably in a few weeks the GCs will be overflowing with them! 

Help with filling in a box hedge

Oh - I've answered on your other thread Nichola! 

Help with filling in a box hedge

Posted: 07/03/2016 at 19:19

Many people would plant herbs in that situation Nichola. Is that something you would use or would you prefer something 'floral' ?  Most herbs prefer sun, so it would help to know what the general conditions are too, and what the soil is like.

Also - if you want floral, do you like a symmetrical look? It lends itself to that. You could put bulbs in for late winter/early spring then use perennials to follow on for summer

I've got quite a good camera RB, and a reasonably steady hand, but I also tweak them a bit once I put them on the computer. David helped with showing me how to do that.... 

What is taking over my garden

  We regularly have masses of it here too, but it's easy to yank out  

Tulips in cold weather

Posted: 07/03/2016 at 17:48

Me too Clari - they don't flower till May here normally, late April if you're lucky,  then they get battered by wind and rain unless they're tucked in somewhere  

Mine are a couple of inches out the soil (in pots only) The common ones are bigger of course. They'll take any old weather and abuse!
