Gardens we Have Visited 2014

Artjak, I think that the strange nectaroscordum type seed head is of Primula florindae,  the giant Himalayan cowslip.

Correct plants for privacy required

Anything that grows to 8m high could get out of hand. It's also likely to be too big a tree to be close to the house unless you have a really large garden.

Td immunisations...

Regular tetanus boosters are essential for all gardeners,even if they usually wear gloves.

A lot of immunizations given in childhood wear off as you get older.I have just had a polio,tetanus,and diphtheria booster.

Lol, artjak

I would love to have seen the workers faces when it was time for a pottystop.

That looks dead. If it hasn't had any leaves on by this stage in the year, you are not going to resurrect it.

Hooray. For anyone having problems with predictive text on a kindle, there is a way to turn it off.

Hold space bar, go to keyboard settings,switch autocorrect to off.

Now my trillium erectum doesn't become something rude.

Gardening Books

Posted: 14/09/2014 at 10:53

I have a kindle Fire, also a, lot of books. I have more gardening books than the local library. I prefer the feel of a real book especially for reference, but I have downloaded lots of books for my holiday, also a guide to the fishes of the east Indies. I just don't have the weight allowance for real books for holidays. Trouble is you darent leave a kindle on a sunbed while you fetch a drink. I think they're good for fiction, but no good for passing it on when you've read it.
