roundabouts and flowering baskets

Posted: 31/08/2013 at 20:36

The round abouts in my area are real joy to look at and are inspiring as are the all flowering baskets and tubs hanging from lamp posts and shops.The mini roundabout in the village looks a delight with different shades of pink and red with matching baskets on the shops and lamp posts.The rounabout I like the most is not full of flowering plants but a herbaceous plants that are cut back in winter ,the grass is cut round it and is very effective in the display of flowers.They put alot of effort into planting and planning and also they sell the left over plants to help support this.

I think you find it is because of irratic watering,How do I know because I have the problem because I have not been able to keep the watering everyday up during this hot weather.They need alot of water and feed when flowering.

Does anyone else have this green rose?

it looks a little like Iceberg,sometimes it has that tinge of green but it nearly always has that  bit of pink before going all white and has a lovely perfume.

I feel sorry for you,I have a similar situtation but not as bad.Its the owner at fault not the dogs and since you live next door and he has a shotgun its not an easy thing resolve without bringing in the the authorities.

Butterflies & Bees

This year seems to be a good year for butterflies and bees ,maybe its the hot weather more of a summer than of late.Certainely out on the Mendips and in somerset countryside there has been abundance of butterflies.lets hope it s a good sign for the re-turn of mass butterflies.

Rosemary edible?

Posted: 29/08/2013 at 13:53

you can use the leaves in breads and cakes and other cooking but not too much.Also you can use it as a disenfectant or if you out it the oven after baking (oven off) it will act as a freshner to the whole house or in a bowl of hot water.It likes a dry site and protect from very cold weather.
