Privet Hedges

Posted: 05/08/2014 at 13:02
I don't know about whatever the weather, you can choose a dry day!

I love privet hedge, I planted one in 2012, it's now about 5' tall, having been constantly picked out so it's as thick at the bottom as the top.

I love the smell of the flowers, takes me back to my childhood in London where everybody had privet.

The little seedlings will not survive outdoors in their first year, as it's late to sow, they won't be big enough to go out.
You will have slugs in your garden, they will chomp the tops off seedlings as soon as the leaves appear.

If you take them with the ipad upside down, are they upside down in your gallery, if so they wont look nice when you look back on them.

My ipad arrived today,  I cant set it up, it wont accept the internet, so got round that problem, now it wont accept my email password, its back in the box, I am back on the android.

A huge big thank you to Bekkie, she has sent  me  loads of mixed geraniums, that is so generous of you.

I am sorting out my borders this week so will do your geraniums and probably the campanulas, I cant remember, Bekkie, if you wanted blue as well or just white?

David you mean the lost gardens of Heligan. The garden is now beautifully restored to its former glory.

They dont really need to be in the greenhouse yet. Bring them back in about end of September or into October, just to overwinter, then they can be planted out next March, they will be nice sized plants by then,

Nature is hard, my daughters little froglets came out of the water(a while ago now) and a big frog eat one she was so upset having reared them from spawn.

Dont mention lawn! Ours desparately needs cutting before the rain sets in and the ride on is knackered. 

The small pond is now turning into a small lake! So much to do and hardly any spare time, dont you just love this gardening thing?

If we went to bed and got some sleep it might help.

Yes, have you seen it.

There was a lovely series of books written by a man that moved to Cornwall and grew dafs, All set around there and the ground is held in trust for the public, its gone right out of my head what they are called, have you read them, they are quite old books now, the author and his wife worked for MI5 during the war.
