Moving beech hedging

Posted: 21/10/2012 at 21:02

that's a lot of hedging. The reason I say this that we've had some beech "hedge" which have been moved around a lot over the last year- 18 months, they were 1ft- 4ft  and even that was hard work.

I'd be tempted to cut them down a bit at the top, add some staking,or tying to the walls let them recover for next year

Evening everyone, my lazy day did extend in to today as well, not much done but a good time was had.

By chance saw that Faulty Towers is having a rerun, true comedy just gets better with age, brilliant SCD, never thought I'd say it it but  I was hoping that cricket player would go over Jerry Hall.

I'm going to embrace  my middle age as Radio 4 is great, I do complain about the young,older comedy gets better, but I still play loud music.

Although somewhat expected, it's going to get colder

oldchippy- I do know what you mean,very poor year for daffrs this year. That's why I'm not buying any this year, all those that didn't perform I'm hoping they will they will come into their own next.

PLANTING NOW

Posted: 20/10/2012 at 17:25

Hello- I've got several clemantis montana plants that were grown from cuttings earlier this year. They are in good size pots and live in a sheltered outside position. The roots have only started to pop through the bottom of the pot.

I was going to leave them in their pots and plant out next Spring? Any advice would be appreciated as I'm so pleased with them

I've been following the Nigel threads, I do genuinely have to ask what is the good news?

When to plant spring bulbs

Posted: 20/10/2012 at 16:14

I've been planting the small bulbs like crocus at the base of annual plants where I can. I know what you mean I have stuff to go out but still have a lot of plants on the go.

Thanks for the info Obelixx, I planted out loads last year and although I had a good show, it wasn't as good as it should have been. I think the wilko etc bulbs could with a good soaking before going in.

Autumn Colour

Stunning pictures of the acers Chris & David K. I've always admired them but never really thought about getting one myself. I noticed that you both have them in pots and they do grow to a fair size. Do you need to grow them that way? I've got a woodland area that I'm planting up, the lovely colour of them at this time year would really brighten that space up.

gary- I've always loved that plant and now I know the name- really beautiful.

I do forget sometimes how beautiful Autumn is, always thinking that Winter is on the way. Whilst I moan about the Winter,I do really love the changing of the seasons that we have.

I've still got a fair bit colour going on in the garden, sad as soon as the first frost come, they will be over.
