Lawn revival got me thinking

Higgy, that looks superb.

 

RD - I reckon if you want to change your weedy lawn into a really nice lawn then I bit if elbow grease is needed. Ideally remove the current turf, deal with the weeds, prepare the soil and relay new turf. But it's not everyone's choice.  

Plant ID please

Its on my shopping list. I'll maybe put it by my new pond?

Maybe if I was a millionaire I would use it but a 30.00 to 40.00 a metre its right out of the question.

Thats for a pack of 5 though. So more like £8 per meter.

Im wanting to use it in-between a new cobbled path and lawn, with the lawn slightly higher than the path so I can mow over it. Im laying a curved path and the steel edging strip should make life easier.

Has anyone used this product, or similar?

Im planning on buying some Everedge steel lawn edging for when I landscape my garden this spring, but wondered if anyone here has any experience of using it? It looks perfect for edging curved areas...

It looks like purple loosestrife to me - really good for bees 

That looks a very nice plant. Ive just googled it and in Canada it seems to be an invasive weed with no predators.....

I assume its ok in the UK?

When it comes to false enthusiasm I think Carol K is at the top of the tree. Maybe she's genuine, but she comes across as false to me. 

 

This is is a great series but as often, I find myself skipping through certain sections that don't interest me such as the glasshouse section.

Thanks, maybe I ought to introduce some blue into the equation, then I will gave a red, white and blue display for the WW1 centenary. Perhaps blue cornflowers?

Poppy Fields

Well Ive purchased my poppy seeds, but I'm looking for ideas for plants to accompany the poppies, to both grow amongst them and maybe to hide the poppy foliage after they have flowered.

Any suggestions please?
