Verdun, that is brilliant
There was a young farmer of Leeds,
Who swallowed six packets of seeds,
It soon came to pass
He was covered in grass
And he couldn't sit down for the weeds.
Not technically a joke...
£12!!! What do they use- gold-plated courier vans?!!
Crocus? Really?! I had a bad experience with them too Thanks all, think I'll avoid RHS then...
I can't see your photo - drat! But I'm sure all the experts on here are right
I saw some iris next to a friend's pond - looked lovely reflected in the water. And dogwoodfor winter reflection in pond.
Thanks Welshonion, but my bed won't have any grass in it whatsoever as the seed mis I'm going to use is 100% cornfield flowers and they are also all annuals, no perennials, so no need to mow.
Or do I need to mow annuals too?! If so, I stand corrected!
Oh no! That's a shame. fellow nice gardening neighbours are the best and I've only ever had one of them, who is thankkfully still around.
If your new neighbours are nice (in spite of screaming kid), I would try giving the kid some seeds, like sunflowers, as a gift, maybe in a small pot or something - see if you can get them interested - many a screaming child has been pacified by a spot of pottering themselves
You have a very nice neighbour, Noob! And you sound like me, itching to get out there and get muddy
Apparently come Monday of next week, we are reaching the heady heigjts of 13 degrees C - brace yourselves and get out the Tshirts.
Thanks Geoff. Won't they come up in Summer if I plant now though?
oh, I forgot to mention that in the fututr, when I'm more organised (!) I will try to sow my annual meadow in Autumn rather than in Spring, so ideally I am looking for bulbs/corms that don't need lifting, dividing etc in early Spring, as this would disrupt my seeds.
