Another wet morning here , getting a little worried about the number of bulbs still waiting to be planted.

Was also hoping to split some hostas, the ground is always too frozen for me to get in in the spring. Has anyone succsessfully moved them at this time of year, I can't think why it wouldn't work.  

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Won't be room for any birds to land!


Sounds lovely, I have a few of those you mention but I think they will grow much better with you.  What about some Lily of the Valley? (Convularia)

DD I have a white corner or the garden, beware it is very difficult to achieveunless you   have the skills if Gardeners from Sissinghurst. Instead I now have a "light" garden

starts with snowdrops,onto dwarf daffs, muscari, alliums, roses then cosmos,and any white annuals that are on the sale stand!

with the perspective a "light" oval will draw the eye to behind. 

Your garden looks stunning, if you wanted to add a small sculpture to the bed you could pay small child to stand in the middle!

Please remember to post results

Lesley K you are becoming as worried about my wall as I am

Fortunately all seems well, trouble will start with the cold weather, water that has got into wall then freezes.  Why we didn't think to check the wall when we bought this place I will never know.

Woodgreen Wonderboy come in quick and shut the door it's cold today

Chicky Happy Birthday how I envy you seeing the poppies, take a pic and post,
