Help needed to create a new garden

Posted: 11/06/2013 at 08:17

Verd-I'd say grasses of all types would be good because of the movement/noise and quite easy maintenance - what do you reckon? Perhaps more shrubs than annuals or perennials that need staking etc - you'll know all the best scented shrubs.  As tattiana says - they don't want to spend all their time with their daughter doing the garden.

How would you describe your garden?

 Not much to do then Brummie... 

How long do you think it would take the pyra cuttings to get to a decent size?

KEF - are you sure it's you that needs to stay out of the sun and not  the antibiotics.....

Difficult Sarah- presumably the membrane is quite deep down then and there's adequate soil on top of it? Perhaps you'd need to dig down in a couple of places to see what's there.

Until I looked back at your original post I hadn't noted that you mention a landlord - is he/she happy to let you plant up the area? That may limit what you do as well.

Good Evening FORKERS

Morning all. Dry just now but Carol says rain later this morning though not too heavy today - more tomorrow. Much needed here

Cold frame will be fine I'm sure Daisy .

Chick that's standard summer wear up here with the addition of a waterproof jacket and leg warmers  Hope you enjoy the tennis. Did you see any of the French open? Only saw a little of Djoko/Nadal- was worn out after watching them for 20 minutes! Give 'our Andy' a big cheer if you get to see him- apparently he's been doing those 'ice baths' like Eddie Izzard did for all his marathons....ouch 

 Will be thinking of you Dovey x

 When I moved here my ex OH let me bring 4 pots with me to grow things in the garden. 

Bev- that's one of the saddest things I've read in ages.

'Let you' bring 4 pots.

I'm glad you've got lots now- and good riddance!!

The pix of your garden on the other thread show just how much you've done. As Gok says- you go girlfriend!

what did I buy?

Sorry for not replying sooner break - the good weather meant I was outside all weekend and haven't really caught up yet! The nepeta should be fine once it settles in. Presume you've got the hot weather- plants tend to wilt a bit when you pot them on anyway and it's worse when it's hot.  Best to put them in a little light shade till they perk up- only a day or so normally. Plants look good and healthy anyway!
