Where to Go?

Thank you to all of you for the ideas.  I'll research them and make my decision.  Again thank you for your time. 

Where to Go?

Hello,
Sorry if I've chosen the wrong Forum for my query.  I'm looking for a lovely old manor house/hotel in England with gardens where my husband and I could stay in May 2018 for 2-3 nights. 


I'm sure on Gardeners World about 10-12 months ago the TV programme featured a fantastic family owned home/hotel with magnificent gardens but I can't remember where it was. 


Can anyone help with a few places that would be great to visit and stay for 2-3 nights?  I've looked on the Gardeners World website pages/forums but can't find anything.  I've also searched the Internet but I'd rather take a recommendation from Gardeners World.



I do hope you can point me in the right direction and again apologies if I've come to the wrong webpage.  But you all sound like a lovely lot of folk and very knowledgeable. - Which I am not! 

What's this?

Thank you to Fairygirl and Phillipa smith2 for replies.  


I'll stick my Phormium seeds in some gritty compost in the greenhouse and see what happens!

My elderly aunt has sent me these seed pods.  Does anyone know what they might be, please?  She says the "tree" grows to about 10' with sword like leaves.  Flowers are black /red.  Should I plant them and see what I get?

After following David Hurrion's brilliant video in the "Secret Garden" at the beginning of the year re pruning wisteria we were amazed to see how many flowers we were going to get this spring.  Sadly, we think the frost has got all 4 plants on the pergola.  All flowers are brown and grey. Presumably, that's what frost does?  Can anyone think that it could be anything other than frost damage? Will we lose all the plants? Should we cut all the dead flowers off?  Prune again? Leave? David Hurrion's video does not cover frost disaster!

Laying Turf

Posted: 08/06/2016 at 13:13

We have taken up decking and have a drop of varying degrees.  At some places it is 18" deep.  We would like to lay turf but how do we do it without filling it all with top soil.  Any suggestions welcome please. 

Lining a Vegetable Trug?

Lining a Vegetable Trug?

I have bought myself a lovely raised veg trug. It measures 1.8m*80cms*70cms and the wood is treated.  Before I load in my compost do I need to line the trug with plastic, or anything else and should I add stones for drainage in the bottom of the trug? I am new to growing veg and with a poor back the raised trug idea seems brilliant.....I hope it is. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you - brilliant advice.  I will try and find a good gardener to take up the decking and put some paving slabs down.  Again - thank you.
