Help needed for a novice gardener

Posted: 15/10/2013 at 19:51

I'd definatley go for some spring bulbs, there's loads on sale now and they are relatively cheap. Some of them provide an early source of nectar for bees and insects,crocus, grape hyacinths, daffs etc  planted now will give you some colour in the spring. The best thing with crocus and grape hyacinths and the like is that over time they multiple and you can add to them as you go

Happy birthday fairygirl, hope you've enjoyed your day and happy anniversary chicky

Definately feel a nip in the air this evening, but it has been a glorioius autumn day. Joined an art class a few weeks ago and went today and starting to feel a lot more comfortable there. Great hedge hog stacey, haven't seen one of these for years, the cake or an alive hedgehog

Radio on for the evening, maybe not to every ones taste, but there's some great music out there at the moment. Really impressed with the new artic monkeys album ( not really been a fan before) and like the arcade fire track as well.

Propagating lavender

Posted: 14/10/2013 at 20:52

Finally started taking some cuttings recently, are lavender that easy to take cuttings from? I have one that I inherited in some very damp soil and partial shade, been gently pruning it after it flowered and it looks all the better for it. I'm not a big fan of the plant but in the right place, it might be good

Hi lily

I'm partial to a bit of honeycomb myself, although not at the moment, had the first twinge of toothache today....not good. Tend not to go the dentist up to the point I have to, at least I'm  registered with a NHS dentist.

Doesn't sound critical to me Dove
