Don't put in crocosmia bulbs..........and cut everything up as small as possible so it breaks down quicker.

Empty Space??

I would just grass it over leaving a bare circle for the magnolia. Because no matter what you put in it, your eye will always be drawn first to the big bed on the left and the lovely acer on the right.

What's the best book you've EVER read ?

Posted: 20/10/2014 at 14:42

The Ka of Gifford Hilary. I read it as a very young impressionable teen and I have had a real phobia about getting buried alive ever since. One of the reasons I signed up for the organ donor scheme!

Talkback: Ivy in the garden

Posted: 15/10/2014 at 19:52

Ivy - the first year it sleeps, the second year it creeps, the third year it leaps! So true!

anyone know this plant?

Could be a sedum or a crassula I think.

Screening my fence with a hedge

Three foot is not a lot if you need to squeeze in to cut the hedge. Maybe give it a few weeks to see if you can live without one?

Can I move these without doing the dastidly deed happening

Posted: 14/10/2014 at 21:30

The bigger they are the trickier it is - and the less successful a move is. Dig the new holes first, take as much of a rootball as possible with the plants , plop in hole and fill in, firming as necessary. Give a good water and keep watered for the next month or two if it is dry. Keep well watered in the spring as well if the plants are large.
