Ponds with rock edging and pebbles

Your pond looks great Lucid. I think the main thing to consider is to make sure there's an easy exit for things like hedgehogs if they stop by for a drink.

I'm very ashamed.

If I'm feeling particulary lazy on the day I find them, I just chuck up in a pot and cover with soil to deal with later.


I've just discovered blood fish and bone so everything gets a sprinkle of this

Should I did up or leave ?

  it is indeed! Hateful plant, no qualms using a weedkiller on it.

I'd get that creeping buttercup out of there. That's a spreader and a real pain

Excellent freebies, they look really healthy

night scented stocks seeds

Posted: 12/05/2016 at 08:28

The seeds of the night scented stock are tiny so I've never tried collecting my own. I had the best results last year with fresh seed. I got mine from seedaholics and had far better plants when I direct sowed instead of in strips/ seed trays. I might even sow some more so I will have them all Summer.


Giving them a  light trim seems to keep them going. The seed heads look to me like little antlers after the flowers, I cut those off to get more flowers so have never really tried to get them to self seed.


Not heard of Zaluzianskia before Ladybird, thanks. I love these night scented plants, great for moths. I got few white scented phlox on the go too

cosmos plugs

They are half hardy plants so could be  killed off if there is a frost which really does depend on where you are. I would say it's unlikely now where I am.Mine are in a open coldframe. It does sound like them being too wet, they don't mind dry conditions and can get battered in heavy rain.


I love the look of the antiquity ones btw I normally grow the mixed but this year I have some poppy ones, yellow and oranges too
