from pot to garden

Posted: 29/09/2014 at 00:08

I have had two clumps of bamboo planted 3 years ago, in the garden, they say its a non evasive type, its only just started to grow, I really wanted that swaying type waving in the breeze, will mine ever grow 6/8ft tall.  Does it take a long while usually to get established?

Thank you, I just cant think what else it could possibly be obstructing like that. Mum is quite prepared for them to say they will remove the bladder, she already has a stoma, she says another bag wont make any diference, I just hope she can stay that positive, she is brilliant for 86.

Dad is coping very well now, cooks a breakfast every day and at the moment has a tomato sandwich every day for lunch because we have a glut!

The weather is still here, just not showing at the top of the home page.

Google Gardeners World weather, then when you have selected it, put it in your bookmarks /favorites or whatever you use. Its just the same as it was.

Your poor mum, verdun, she must wonder what is going on in her head. Do the nurses think that is what is to be expected from her, or is there an underlying problem, I havent read all the posts on here but it sounds so sad for everyone concerned.

My mum is still in hospitsl, thats about 10days now, I am expecting them to say bladder cancer, but she seems so well in herself, just cant pee because of an obsruction. We will know in 2 weeks time, when they have diagnosed from the biopsy.

Not sure what to do with early growers

Those lupins grown like that since August!!

I dont think the top photo are foxgloves.

I would say that the alliums are not planted deep enough. Should be 5/6inches down, thats why they are up now.

Thanks Lizzie, I cant do links on the tablet.

The plants were advertized in a leaflet as plugs, but seems they could be grown from seeds, I love the parrot type fruits/seed heads.

I think that as dad really refuses to take anything, just something to thin the blood to avoid a stroke was the best compromize. If it had been something he had never heard of then he wouldnt have taken it at all! 

I have probably had my parents with me for longer than most on here so I must be thankful for that.

They have their choices, it must be up to them and I must not be selfish.
