Montbretia eradication

Posted: 10/03/2015 at 13:19

I love it, from its first bright green shoots to its bright, blousy gaudiness. I purposely planted it when I first did this border about 3 years ago, I do, however, keep the clumps controlled or it would run riot. I find it very easy to get out.



new trees?

If they are in pots you can plant anytime, if bare roots, pot them up until you are ready. They will need watering well in pots though.

Conservatory Plants

Not Dahlias, they are best outside.0ne of ours is only single glazed so can get cold at night, I just use if for Lilly, Geraniums,fuchsias begonias etc. would like to sow something exotic for in there but I don't think any plant would like the extreme change in temp on a single glazed unit.

I may try my new Canna just up from seeds.

Edited to add a couple of pics, this does take more than a hour every single day to maintain though, so if you haven't the time, I wouldn't recommend it!


Thoughts please

We have a Cornish shovel and a Devon spade, I did try 'go faster' stripes round them but they still only work as fast as I can!

No make on them, they came from the farmers shops donkeys years ago, 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I would say go for it. We had loads of moss so we scarified first, gives the moss killer a better chance. We then used Westland Weed Feed and Moss killer, works a treat, I wouldnt use anything ese now.

what are you excited about?

Posted: 05/03/2015 at 12:12

I am excited because Hostafan is excited, mine are not showing yet.

Also Social Services brought my mum an electric reclining air bed. That was some ecitement.

A while back I was excited  because my car insurance was only 150.00 and I got two baby Oleg toys in babygros with a maggot toy.

Not sure how I would feel if a choc eclair was poked at me unawares!
