Today I feel so happy....

Posted: 04/05/2013 at 19:02

I have had a very happy day, the sun shone, everything is growing, including the leaves of the beech trees. Planted out a lot of freebies, some aqulegias, grape hyacinths, londons pride, all destined to the bin, but now they have a new home.

What did you do in your garden today?

Sorted through and planted out lot of freebies, did some weeding/digging and generally admired the garden in the sunshine.

Lovely pictures both, the tulips by the front door look really smart

Mother in Law's Tongue

Hi Tim, mothers in law's tongue is part of the succulent family. It's a bit cold for them be them outside, they are indoor plants really, although they do like being outside in the summer. I would say that they do best in a sunny window sill, they don't like be overwatered in the winter. Is the soil really wet?

Hello everyone, the sunshine is still shining here, hoping it's going to continue into the weekend.

Spotted an other Echininciea through today, very pleased as grew them from seed last year. It will match the other 2, I like odd numbers in the garden.

GG, what have you got growing? I think I can see some sweetpeas.....but can't really see the rest.

Wilting lavender - help!

I would say the same, a lot of the plants that you buy from supermarkets etc tend to be pot bound and not watered enough. It is a hardy plant so you could plant it straight out. I'd pot it on, give it a good drink and then plant it out when it's recovered
