what's still flowering in your garden?

Posted: 10/11/2013 at 13:10

My dahlias are still flowering, i had to dig most of them up. To get ground mulched.

Picked last of the second blooming of delphs for indoor vase. Lots of things still going and the baskets in the conservatory are still very good,

They love fuchsia so if you have any of those, i would take them out of the pots and check.

If you buy on line and they are sold as plugs, they will be to small to plant out now, but you can pot them up, keep in a cold greenhouse or cold frame and plant out early Spring. If you want to plant out now, the supermarkets have some 

In 3/4 inch pots, those can go out now.

Last year our grass was a yellow carpet but after using the Westland this spring, they were gone, never had one, however, i can see a few now, so next March it will get another lot on.  i found that that is the only brand that really worked.

Its wonderful Hollie, so interesting with the different levels, it will be lovely in the spring.

I also give thanks every day for the chance to live here where we are, enjoy it but dont go flat out in the first year(like I did) take it steady, you will get there.

Choose strong wind proof plants.

I love the sound of geese, we havent any here, the sounds are so different, fox screams a bit, screech owls and night jars. 

You wll love it and you can play your records as loud as you want.! No one to annoy.

Sounds great Hollie, with regard to quiet in the countryside---- we are 1.5 miles from the nearest house. The tractors roar up and down all day, the flock of starlings that come every year are deafening, there has been a bull in the adjoing field of cows and he has roared all night(scary!). We have bats in the loft and they make so much mess you wouldnt beleive it, everything is covered in very sticky wee, like treacle, everthing has to be covered with large sheets of cardboard and it stinks. I have to shower after going up there --- oh! The joys of country living, just joking (although true) enjoy your new house and garden.
