Fairygirl maybe go for one of them small colourful ponds I saw one at a pond place near the GC very small and sit on the ground no need for digging

Stacey thanks if you want to send any more then please do. I have collected some seeds of a plant from the station which look a bit like cow parsley white, think it is called angelica but guessing if you want any I could send you some

Nutcutlet - thanks I did not know what it was - looks really pretty though

Stacey - thats good need some orange in the train station garden

I potting up the other day some red dogwood which I cut earlier in the year and put in a bucket of water as someone said on another thread and it rooted nicely - that will be going to the station,  I have been looking around the garden seeing what can taken to be planted in the station garden as large garden and needs lots of plants to fill and not allowed to spend much money on it

Evening all

Here is some from Parham House and Garden I visited last Sunday

Nice full flower beds

Bees are loving the sunflowers in this pic

Really like the white and blue flowers

Hollyhock large very good for back of border

What an amazing view in this bit of the garden

Here is a pic of a large caterpillar moved really fast across the path

and here is a butterfly the garden is a great world for insects

another great view really like the plant colours here

oh and all these plants I ended up buying that are in the trollies and even a few bits in a bag, mainly for the front garden. What a lot of lugging plants around and feet were sore from all the walking

Here is a pic of brunnera macrophylla jack frost - that I brought and a butterfly on it already in my back garden

Here is my plants from Stacey Docherty Thank you very much labelled with you name ready to go to the station in the next couple of weeks. What I think they are is Crocosmia is that right stacey?

Evening forkers.

Stacey, got seeds and plants.  Amazed today when plants arrived, didn't realise you were sending them.  Can I just check what they are, I think I know but want to check.  Thank you sooo much for sending them.

All planted up in pots awaiting the chance to take them to the station.

Sieved some nice home made compost which isn't too bad.   Bashed up some bricks to help clear a pathway down the garden.  Sowed some seeds and watered garden as no rain here.

Evening forkers.  Went off to Parham House and Gardens today.  Well, day started a bit wet then dried and warmed up with sun later on.

Georgeous gardens filled with colour, bees, butterflies and a large caterpillar spotted as well.

Got to talk to Pippa Greenwood and she remembered me from last year which was nice, and she answered my questions about veg.

Well I did buy some plants - well quite a lot - for the front garden (and the back) and so tempting to buy more but had to stop, if not I'll be the one in pain digging the ground to plant them all.

Will post pics later.

Did see something planted like that on tv before think it was one of the gardens for the yellow book not sure they dug out stepping holes to be able to walk up the slope to plant

Try grasses you can get alsorts and look lovely in the wind and ask at local GC if they have any plants that they would recommend to use to help
