Garden Pictures 2015

Over the last few weeks Ive been giving my lawn its 'last cut of the year' numerous times, I wonder how many more I shall do before it stops growing? Anyway, I've tidied up my pots, just leaving out the evergreen box balls..

Spent a small fortune on new frost proof pots, compost and spring/summer bulbs. I discovered Homebase to be the cheapest for normal looking terracotta pots, but had to go to Dobbies for the two larger roll top pots. Managed to pot half of them up today, mostly aliums, dafs and some rather nice looking Venetian tulip collection from Sarah Raven. Placed them against the house for further frost protection..

Sorry, can't make tomorrow as I now have to do the school run in the afternoon. Shame, I was looking forward to going. 

French lavender

One of my most favourite plants, but they don't normally survive the winter for me. They aren't as hardy as English lavender.

I live very close to Pictorial Meadows and they supplied their seeds to Rotherham Council who sowed them along roadsides & roundabouts etc and they really did look spectacular. I even wrote to Rotherham council to commend them.

It's impossible to miss me nutcutlet. I'll be the massive bloke arriving in a massive motorbike. I just hope there's somewhere to change out of my biking gear, walking around in armoured vortex, boots and helmet isn't fun

Alliums In A Pot

Those photos were taken a couple of years ago, I forgot to sow my sunflowers this year. All of those plants are in pots, apart from the lavender in the foreground of the second photo.

That could work, or just compress them as much as you can. Personally id cover mine, but I guess other don't?
