Gardeners World Live tomorrow

Posted: 18/06/2013 at 10:53

Sorry it wasnt as good as expected. I really dont think I'll be going again to a GW Live show, they do seem to be a bit of a let down lately dont they.

The one in 2009 was quite good and I ended up coming home with a new greenhouse! But last years was poor, even the GF Show was bad. Seems they are really going down hill.

What did you do in your garden today?

Potted on 30+ sunflowers, most of them kindly given to me as seeds from Lilylouise.

I was on my hands & knees crawling through the borders pulling them out. Then of course you find a stray bramble, and a nettle....

Buttercups

I might carefully spray them with weedkiller and leave that to take effect in the roots, then dig them up.

Yeah we seem to have had loads pop up too :-/ darn things... I left them as the leaves looked a little geraniumlike to me now I know it was a giant error (( 

To be honest, I thought they were geraniums as well when they first started showing. 

whats this plant?

Strange how some of the nicest looking plants are regarded as weeds.Imagine if dandelions were difficult to grow, we would be spending a fortune on them.

 

Does look like willow herb.

Buttercups have found their way into my garden this year, they have flowered before I got around to pulling the out. They look quite nice actually, but I assume they are invasive perennials that need removing immediately?

Heres the buttercups in my garden...
