Talkback: Growing hellebores

I started with one white and one a dusky pink. The pink one has produced more offspring.  I also have forget me nots everywhere... A testament to the fact that I hoe very little, and leave a lot of self setters when I know what they are.

Strange Soil sucked out in lawn

Posted: 17/02/2014 at 16:18

the moss means you have poor drainage. The worm casts mean that worms are burrowing through your soil, and helping the drainage. It will all look better when it warms up, and you have cut the grass a couple of  times.

If its any consolation, my lawn currently looks like a disaster zone,the birds are taking moss for nests, but it will be fine by summer for when we want to sit on it.

I potted a tray of black barlow aquilegias yesterday, put them outside to water and then forgot.  oops. should be ok, It got cold overnight but no frost i don't think. I've put them back in the greenhouse for a bit. Just a bit of TLC as they seem to have woken from the dormant state they have been in all winter.  When the roots start growing they can go out, I'm going to need the space.

 Dove has one, then I bought one. Its lovely.

I'm using Levington M3 (pro) in 75L bags. (£7.50) Last years and this years new stock,both excellent. A pallet load delivered costs a bit less per bag.  Heavy bags to hump around though.

Fire pit off gardeners world tv programme.

If you google "firepit"it brings up lots of versions on amazon, tesco, etc.

Then its a case of you pays your money and take your pick.

I think the answer is we don't know what brand Monty Don has, but there are lots of similar versions.

My OH thinks that watering cans should have a little ladder on the inside, so when a mouse drops in, it can climb out and not drown. We've had two drown so far this year. They tend to clog up the spout.
