Laurel Rejuvenation

You could cut it down to  30cms and by the end of summer it will have grown about 60/70 cms from the bottom, nice and thick.

Had a nice Mother's Day at Karen's, went to Wyvale and another GC, bought some nice pelargoniums and some trailing plants for Karen's baskets.

Watching Seedlings Grow 2017

Posted: 24/03/2017 at 15:33

Torg , I wouldn't sprinkle those seeds direct. Start off in trays then pot on, you need to have full sun on them all the time or the flowers curl up tightly.  Each seeds will grow into a plant at least 30cms across. 

I grew them when I first made my long border, just to fill the spaces, they are too gaudy for me really, but put on a good show when there wasn't much else in there.

Dwarf forsythia - what do you think?

Posted: 20/03/2017 at 10:05

I have a dwarf Forsythia in a tub, but apart from the short time it flowers it's very uninteresting. I am not sure if they stay dwarf when you plant them out in the garden?

It's been raining a lot more now. Here's a pic from yesterday. I wanted to get all the hyhasinths in.

It wasn't very good, hubby's cut back the Pyracantha down the side, with my help.

See original post

The first house we bought was just like yours Logan, we planted a row of conifers around the border, didn't like them but it kept dogs and children off of it. We kept them short just at about 2' but it was just enough, wonder if they are still there🤔Do you have any problems?  

composting new biodegradable bags

Posted: 19/03/2017 at 16:55

The super markets have a bin outside or in the foyer where you can put the bags in for them to recycle. My SM Delivery takes them back and any other plastic bags I may have,

my GH bubble wrap disintegrated this year, just crumbled away, tiny bit of plastic everywhere.

There's no sign of buds yet on mine either, but I'm sure there will be later on. Maybe give it a bit longer, unless, as Dove says, you pruned it a bit late?
