Please help - fence disaster!

Posted: 25/02/2017 at 19:10

Agree with Fairygirl. The middle of three 7ftx6ft vertical weather board panels was taken out by Doris on Thursday. Two 4"x3" posts were snapped off. The panels are solid and heavy duty and the fence has lasted 17 years. That said, the total length is only 21ft with each end supported by 90 degree adjacent panels. The greater surface area creates greater wind resistance acting like a sail on a galleon and something has to give.

Two wooden posts (4"x3") snapped off at the base with the heavy duty fence panel in between flattening plants in the border. Numerous twigs and branches in the roads, the odd tree down here and there, neighbour's TV aerial down (Northamptonshire).

Snowdrop ID please

One of the best plants you can get for bees is Viper's Bugloss. They just adore it

You could never tell a Border had been in that garden Fishy. What's the tricks of the trade? 

See original post

None at all Mark, I just planted them and they grew  I was trying to create a woodland effect with the campion and sweet rocket.

Some really beautiful gardens on here folks, I'm envious.

You mean those gaudy things in hanging baskets? Actually I just googled petunias and didn't realise they are in the deadly nightshade/potato family
