When should I pot on my lupins

Posted: 11/09/2015 at 18:48

I would echo what all that Verdun has said. I find they are only good for the first three years, then the flower spikes are not so large, so bare in mind so you can sow more seeds in time for replacements.

i am now turfing out the first ever ones I grew, have more to replace them with in the Spring, then I shall sow another lot to replace the next years, and so on.

Is lawn edging popular?

Posted: 11/09/2015 at 18:38

I have used the cheap naff log roll edging, you can't see it, it's sunk in to ground level, the grass is cut up to it and the gap behind filled in, not the cliff edge look. The plants are allowed to spill out,over the grass. Only thing now, it's been in almost four years and some is rotting away.

it serves the purpose of grass not growing in the borders.

You're right there Hosta, there's times in winter gales when we can't even open doors for the force of the wind.

plan sounds good for Friday, a walk around the lake would be fantastic, 

Wont go without a fight....

I loved furby, my daughter spent hours teaching hers to speak English.

They will be worth a fortune in a years to come.

New lawn

There is a difference in the treatment though Verdun, you don't want to feed the lawn now with stuff you would feed in the Spring. As I said, and Verdun,  just treat the odd weed now and do the rest in the Spring, they won't grow much as the weather turns cold for the winter.

I think Nut has the right idea, as soon as you see the flowers start to die, cut them off and throw them away, in the bin, then they won't drop seed.


compost bins

I do keep the green for the bin, just throw any the roots. We have a good council service, they will collect five big bags of waste a fortnight for free.

Garden maiden, was it you who sent me the seeds last year, I only had one geminate, still hoping for more to come,but I don't think so now.
