garlic

Posted: 26/09/2012 at 14:37

I bought a garlic bulb from the local shop and its growing madly everywhere.I am afraid I use it for gardening purposes rather than eating.

I would like advice on the perfect rose for me please guys

I have a rose  called Iceberg which is a climber and is white with a tinge of pink.It is robust and I have taken many cuttings and it flowers twice if you prune it in summer.I have one by my front door which gives that gentle scent as you go in and one in the back garden.very hardy and beautiful.

Can I start a holly hedge with bareroot plants?

Posted: 26/09/2012 at 14:24

I started my sons hedge with mix bushs including holly.They were small seedlings when I dug them up and replanted to hedge.Slow growing and tough is a holly and they need to be male and female if you want those berries.

Keeping seeds from rotting Nasturium

Posted: 26/09/2012 at 14:17

you can collect alot of the seed while green and turn into capersif you like that(pickled).Most of the seed that drops will pop up next summer all over the place.I also collect the seed if possible on a dry day and put them to dry on  a window then when dry place in paper bag or envelope.They are so numerous you wont go short of plants next year.Store away from mice e.t.c. and plant again next spring.you can also eat the leaves and flowers a gentle pepper flavor.

Planting out Lupins

Posted: 23/09/2012 at 15:34

I have some young lupins which I now plant out in tubs surrounded by slug defence.They have done better in pots as my soil is heavy(clay) and been unsuccessful in keeping them but in the pots they are doing fine,they will die back and hopefully flower next year.They are a  biannual so take two years before flowering.

wild life in the park

I was amazed on Saturday to find a lovely park in the middle of a town setting with a large lake.This housing estate is under 40 years and built on farm land and surrounds the big park.The lake had ducks,swans,gulls and more surprisingly Kingfishers,darting  to fro( in full view of people) not afraid at all.I have never watched so close and for ages these little birds,yet here in this crowded town these normally shy birds were thriving.I know we have a lot wildlife in towns but I thought Kingfishers a bit of rarity.
