Morning all, it's been quite a while since I have posted due to a major crash of my laptop. So I had to wait till my brother had fixed it but as of yesterday evening I'm in full controll again, yay. What seems a bit strange is that this message keeps coming up telling me the software I'm using is not legitimate.....but I still can use it..
In the meanwhile we managed to clear part of the garden of weeds, only a few perennial weeds left which seem to like our soil very much. Only two-thirds to go now. And because I still didn't manage to find a new job I've got loads of time on my hand to tackle Creeping Buttercups, Nettles and Thistles. I am planning to try some cardboard layers with compost in between to suppress the other weeds.
Lovely Cobea Pam. I tried them too and I found that they needed a lot of sunshine and watering as well. The first year, nothing. Second year loads of beautiful flowers.I grew purple/white ones. I'm no good at watering plants in containers so now the containers are getting bigger and bigger. At least that way it takes them longer to dry out.
Kate, why are you preparing for the winter already -planting season just started.
