i am mostly cottage gardener.. but some times my need to be clean and tidy and smart sharpe lines takes over.. but not for long i love my plants cramme din so no weeding to do and colour all year round if i can get it....

trying to load up some new pics of garden but the usual problem of camera and computer not talking to each other again is going on.. will wait for them to get off it and try again later


i love looking at other peoples gardens.. not only are they gorgeous to look at but they also give me ideas.. for mine! lilylouise your garden is a show of love and dedication and cant wait for this years video.. makes sure you start a thread with it so i dont miss it

Evergreen Lawn

Posted: 09/07/2012 at 15:37

i get green thumb in it costs me less £15 for the front lawn instead of 2 x tubs of evergreen at £16.99 when i last bought some..  and they weed with stronger weed killer as chemicals can only be used by specialist people.. (not found in shop bought ones) and it works very fast..after 2 doings we had no weeds amazing it is green thick and lush.. and they come over 3 months.. then aireate and scarify twice a year.. lawn never been better..

That sounds like 1976 ;- )

I remember that one! Didn't it last 2 years 75 & 76? I do love the sun, but for me ideal summer would be rain between 2 am and 5am, 18 -25 degrees and blue sky with a few fluffy clouds all day. Smog all day urrghh that would be awful. Another reason why plants and trees should be a compulsory part of any town and city planning


that is how i see summer being.. rain at night and max temp of 23 for me during the day with fully clouds.. actually i would hte whole year to be like that with lower temperature around 20 for winter.. be nice.
