Having a go at a cut flower patch...

Posted: 05/07/2015 at 22:41

Very pretty flower patch Matty, amazing how quick things grow.

Not really planned but I have a surplus of Rudebekias so I have plonked them all in a raised bed, so will have a cutting bed full of them soon

Is this a bug or disease?

I've been out squeezing the leaves now, stops the plant looking so bald

A few of my plants have this, didn't realise you could squash them inside I usually just take the leaf off

I inherited some of this in a past garden, managed to get rid of it by digging it up so hopefully you've got it all. I hate creeping buttercup too

What to plant?

You could grow one courgette plant although they can grow quite big. Radishes might be a good crop, quick growing and doesn't need to much space

You could grow courgettes in bit pots, I'm growing them this way

Too many ads in Gardeners' World Magazine?

I used to subscribe but found that I didn't really read all of it and  once I had it for a year, it was a bit repetative. Ended up with piles of magazines in dusty corners

new garden

My partner always makes curvy beds for me, much more pleasing to the eye, that way the lawn or in my case the green bit is curvy too. My garden is what I suppose is the traditional terrace garden, long and narrow. We've made seperate little areas and have to walk around things rather than one long path.

We've started to plant things that will climb over the fences etc so the eye is drawn vertically rather than just horizontally.

Can't help on the lawn issue, I'm trying to get wild flowers to self seed in mine
