Wildlife gardening...hopes for the future

Posted: 06/10/2013 at 12:59

hi nut, think i saw the false sunflowers, really pleased they gave you a show, the bees and butterflies adore them

Got some toads here but don't see them for ages but once in a while I spot them, saw one in the flower beds a few months ago. There are slow worms here as well, earlier on this year, rescued quite a few.....they were brought home very much alive by the cats. Not seen a hedgehog though, but do have gaps under the fence just in case

Thanks for the info on this thread, grew some for the first time this year and they took an age to germinate but I have several all still flowering so no seedlings yet that I can see

I'm hoping that that they self seed and survive the winter but might cut down a couple and pot up for  winter in the cold frame.

I love my rudebekias, grew some last year and they survived the winter so added some cappuchino types and some sweet little totos, small and pretty and have been flowering for ages. Lovely flowers for late summer, autumn

Complete novice getting started

Hi Paddy, grew some veg here for the first time, all gone now but great fun and eat some veg that I grew

I have coldframes that are empty at the moment so might try with some salad leaves

I bought some snowdrops in the green and the 6 perennial offer last year. A year on and I'm very happy with them, on the whole grown into strong perennial plants.

Bought a well established Budlelia today for a good price. I'ts over a metre tall but is quite bushy at the bottom and has side shoots coming off the main stem. It's still got it's dried flowers on it

Got a good place for it, really want it to well next year, when the best time to prune it?

Thanks

It's a shame things aren't working, Cltl and F5 makes no difference, neither does clearing one's history...........think I'm going to leave it for now and come back in a few days to see if things have improved...........I might be talking to myself, thats ok, I'm the one person that makes sense to me
