Wildlife friendly suggestions for bare fences....

Posted: 14/12/2012 at 16:27

I have grown in one part to cover a boring fence a evergreen plant that came from  a flower arrangement against it.I think its a kind of variegated privet.any how it grew espaliered across the fence on its own and I just clipped it to keep it neat and in line and it makes a good cover.

Hedge or border

I have done a rosemary hedge for my son s small corner garden and its worked well,I took cuttings from his big rosemary bush and just stuck them in the ground,they took and once they statred to take off I clipped them into shape and we cut them back when they need it.As well as a lovely scent when you brush by it (its a handy for all those things you can do with it) its quick to grow,easy to maintain,looks lovely when in flower and free.

Talkback: Dealing with a waterlogged garden

Posted: 10/12/2012 at 15:03

I have the problem of a water logged lawn as I am on a hill and the lawn is on the flat bit .there is also a under ground spring that runs through the garden so all in all its like a swamp .We planted a stick off a willow tree one year and it grew and it grew ,it kept the lawn dry but it got bigger and bigger no matter how we cut it back and for smallish garden it was a disaster,it kept the lawn dry but it had to come down.I still have the trunk as a seat.
