Bev, glad they got to you ok, thanks for your seeds, not grown either before, so looking forward to how it works out.

Gardengirl, hopeful that my Hebe cuttings have rooted as well

 

Long, thin, narrow strip to plant up...

Hi Sarah,

I've been trying to imagine your garden. The first thing I would think about is the boundary, you say it's boring light brown fence. Boundaries really change things, I really like a dark brown effect against the green of the plants, but I do get a lot of light.

It's long and narrow, similar to the shape that I have. I would avoid planting to that shape and design.

Any chance of a picture?

Rustic trellis

Hi bunny, we used hazel as a make shift trellis type structure to block a gap in the hedge. About 4-5 verticals and then the rest was woven in horizontally.

Also used fresh cut hazel for stakes to support Lupins, was very surprised last year that the stakes started growing fresh shoots, not sure if they are going to sprout this year.

Not had any experience about willow but OH tells me they go soft quickly

Afternoon everyone, been on a little jaunt to pick up a worktop style cooker. Working perfectly and in really good condition £20! I love a bargain.

Going to enjoy warm baguettes, bacon & brie and settle down to Afternoon drama on BBC 4- Animal Farm.
