I think a tent like thing hanging from the tree will make enough of a statement. Cream will soon get filthy.  Red I think is too much. It will hang where there used to be a child swing, the ropes are still there. I think we will have to have a garden party to christen it.

Following on from the new herb bed and a rim (raised bed?) around last years onion bed, steps are now being modified, to steps with a ramp in the middle for the wheelbarrow. The trouble with terracing a slope is wheelbarrows  dont like steps.

 The trouble with engineers is everything has to be perfect and gets overengineered.

My raised bed has metposts with 3 inch sq posts in each corner. It should stand an invasion of triffids.

Also, Oh has decided that maybe I can have a cacoon to hang from the oak tree, so I can loll and look at the garden at the same time.

I'm thinking a green one, what do you think.?

 

What to plant in VERY tall, narrow planter

Posted: 18/04/2014 at 21:11

I have a similar pot. I don't put a plant in it because if the roots grow it would be impossible to get the plant out to repot. Also it has no holes in the bottom. You could part fill it with stones and then stand a plastic plant pot inside the lip of it. That way you can change the plant with the seasons.

All right .... own up .... which ones of you do this?

I have been known to round up a load of big snails and put them in the middle of the lawn with some bird food to attract the thrushes. Or I stamp on them.

My OH is obsessive about switching everything off to save money. Computers at work are on all the time so backups and updates are done while we are not there.

I find it weird when someone remotely does something to a computer that I'm working on. I start looking for the hidden cameras. I'm sure that they are more likely to be hacked if they are on all the time, but that makes me sound paranoid.

The ducks are back. They seem to like the special duck food. They'll be upset again on Sunday as we're going to be away again. Visiting friends and not relatives this time.

What do you do with grass clippings?

Posted: 17/04/2014 at 20:58

ive got a lot of leaves that were swept up last year. I mix them up with grass cuttings, shredded hedge prunings and kitchen waste and it  makes compost.You can lay them as mulch around raspberry plants

It depends on how much space is between your plants. Mine won't have any gaps until I pull out the forget me nots. If I learnt how   a hoe, I wouldn't have all the forget me nots or poppies, or all the overwintered cerinthe that are just starting to flower.

I would run one of the three pronged cultivators around and then mulch.If you don't have one, you could use a hand fork or even a hoe.
