I like the sound of a 'fairy protected wall'!!!!!!!!!

And it isn't dry now!

Main difference I notice with being here in Fife is that the seasons are about 3 weeks later than down south - esp. noticeable with spring bulbs. And there can be a weeks difference between here and my friend in Morayshire. Best thing to do is check out the Beechgrove garden programme. You will find Jim planting his tatties and beans later than Monty.

There is a problem on the forum with our pics. Don't worry - no-one's pic is showing.

Winter Readings

 The book on Highgrove Gardens is a few years old now but very good and interesting. Esp. the hen houses!

How about a printed quiz with a flower theme? Twenty questions whose answers are names of flowers. I'm sure the internet could throw up some questions for you if you searched. Would cost nothing to organise but offer a fiver for the winner at 50p a go. Or 'free' prizes like an hours weeding, bag of home grown spuds, lawn cut etc.

Water Hose Pressure

Or do it very early in the morning ie 5-6 am. Amazing how much difference it makes to the water pressure when not so many people are using it.

Trimming Lavender and Wisteria

Yes, I would cut to the lower red line for your lavender.

To-do lists

Posted: 25/10/2014 at 22:05

I am a list maker. As soon as I have as many jobs to do that threaten to overwhelm me, I make a list. And yes I have been known to add things on that were not on the list but which I had done, just to get the satisfaction of scoring them off. That counterbalances the fact I score one off then add at least 2 on! Lists are great! Except when I get to over 20 jobs to do in the garden  then I get depressed.

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