May In Your Garden

@debbie11.. yes leave doors and windows open.. i have had mine open through the night as well.. thou close door slightly as the pesky sea gull gets in there..

also..and this may sound strange.. but is use old net curtains to shade mine.. they still let light in and are cheaper than proper shading.. and i just hold in with insulation clips..  thou on one side that gets full sun all day it has proper stuff on outside as easier to fit..

@inkadog.. well they look good.. i love natural stuff in the garden

May In Your Garden

Posted: 28/05/2012 at 18:36 have been busy.. can i see stone walls in the back ground.. if so gorgeous.. would love those in my garden.. but cant convince hubby on them.. he is such a sour puss at times

@wintersong.. right. thanks.. this is first itme have one.. so have no knowledge of all hints and knowledge welcome in my corner and would love to see picie of your hostas.. love htem.. have loads in up and coming woodland shaded garden... i am after a ghost all white one.. to go with all the green.. should stand out in the shade.. as i think white always does.

i have not done garden much..too so burnt on arms yesterday..they stung in the sun today.. so stayed in doors and poted up my varigated yucca.

i have been using j arthurs bowers 3 for £11.00 they are 6olitre bags.. best i can get.. i do not buy cheaper that that as no good.. i have not found anything more than small bits of plastic on one and few twigs.. but last eyar i found they were all fir/hairy type stuff.. which clogged my seive.. took them back and got a replacement.

must say all my plants are doing well (mind you need some rain) and seedlings have done ok this year.. not really any diff from last year.

well they never tol dme that when i bought it.. oh well i will leave it where it is.. as it gets tall they tol dme and will be great back drop for other plants when it does finally flower

wintersong.. i also move plants at least once.. as it takes one year of flowering to see if it fits... i try to move to much as my mum says they do not like it.. but it is the hardest part.. all right if starting with a clear fresh patch.. can place them better.. but not when it is well up and running.
