Thanks Wonky. I've made several gardens in the last few years. When I left my first there were a few tears, but I've learnt over the years, gardens can move with you. This place feels more secure so off I go again. Good luck with yours too, there is something very exciting to start off with a blank canvas (once the weeds have gone).

Take some pictures as you go

Anyone done any gardening today?

Laid up with a very stiff and sore neck so only managed to shuffle round the garden looking, still things are growing and on the whole doing well

Beautiful gardens on here, lovely to look at. Your patio is stunning Francis and love that Clementis in the pot, looks so health. You must have had some lovely times out there with your plants.

I live in rented accomadation and have moved fairly regularly these last few years. Here's some pics of my new plot. As sure as we can be that this is more of a permanant home, so been cracking on with the garden


 


 


 The first pic was at the end of March and the last one was taken this week. Things really start to grow when Spring is here

 

My neighbours dont want me to use my land to grow a garden

Be good to see some pictures of your plot Shirley. I wouldn't give in without a fight, don't let them put you off. The idea of fencing and then planting a wildlife hedge is a good one.

That's lovely Invicta, enjoy them together

What is my plant and can it be saved?

I'd give it a good hair cut and get rid of the straggly brown bits. Cut it back to the new fresh growth. They are perennial so should pull through

Looks a bit like penstemons to me. If there's new growth there is hope
