Netherfield, that looks like a beautifully well kept garden.

I tried to spend the day sat on the patio under the parasol, but as ever my mind wanders to all the little jobs that need doing in the garden. Do instead I trimmed the privet hedge, mowed the lawn, supported the sunflowers.... Eventually I did get to sit down.

 Im still struggling to view the larger photos when clicking on them, is this an issue with this site, or just me?

Lupins

Aren't Lupins great. I always like to plant them alongside foxgloves. Even the tiny planted area on my front garden has them....

Designing a Garden Centre from scratch

Posted: 04/07/2013 at 12:37

I think all garden centres are missing out on my great idea....

Have a few small sample gardens all planted up in different styles, with all plants clearly labeled. Then have areas set aside with all these plants potted up and labeled.  That way customers can get inspiration from the sample gardens and see the plants growing and working well together. They can then go and grab the plants they want from the display area and buy them. 

Simples.

Lovey photo, LeadFarmer. My snake was off like a shot so not a good photo.

Well I was out with my DSLR camera taking photos of a disused WW2 RAF barrage balloon site when I came across the snake. It would have been frustrating to have seen it and not had my camera with me.

Must be great to see one in your garden. Fascinating to watch I bet?

An I right in thinking grass snakes aren't poisonous but may still bite?

Lawn edging

Or you could lay a length of timber baton sat just below the grass level, letting the grass creep over the top of it. That way you can mow over it and use edging shears against it. Not much use for curved edges though!
