What did you do in your garden today?

Posted: 04/05/2013 at 18:14

I uncovered my beetroot seedlings in the garden - the BBC weather forecast seems to say we're warming up.  I also spread some fertiliser on the lawn as advised by Beechgrove Garden.  Then it got cold and very windy.  Again.

Small urban garden......

I've tried fruit trees against a fence.  Pears, fan trained against an east-ish facing fence worked well in the last garden.  In the current, south facing garden I'm trying a step-over apple aginst a 3 foot metal post and rail type fence.  Productive and pretty - with a bit of pruning interest thrown in.

Do these grow through plants?

I think I'm going to plant some bearded irises just so I can watch them grow in the sin (see Gardening Grandma's advice).  For the rest, I've piled most of these into borders in a haphazard way and it's all produced a gorgeous jam-packed cottage garden.  What I'm not so keen on is having to stake plants - artjak - does hacking them down mean you don't have to stake delphiniums?

 

Inherited pear tree help

Posted: 31/12/2012 at 14:14

I moved into a house with a handsome pear tree a bit over a year ago.  While the tree is lovely, the pears are very disappointing - small, brown, dry and cracked - and only very few of them.  Is it the end of the line for this tree?
