Anyone have damage from last night's tulmultous weather?

Posted: 02/06/2015 at 15:06

It seems Cornwall copped it pretty bad, just had our electrician call, he is doing the wiring for the Cornwall show and last night the marquee went over and blew everywhere taking the wiring with it, he went to check it this morning and walked away, told them he wasnt touching it in this wind! Now he has to go tomorrow and get it all done in the day as the show opens Thursday.

Those are young they will grow to 20ft, they are like wild blackberries (bramble)  they ramble for miles through my hydrangeas just too big for me to check them, so I let them fruit and eat them, they are lovely and we do get loads! They will take liberties though in other parts of the garden, probably birds dropping seeds everywhere.

thought I had seen this post before,,, it still isnt ground elder, have a look at this pic of mine, its wild raspberry, there are little brown spots along the stems, have yours got those, although, mine is wild so perhaps cultivated ones dont have those spots.


Hedge dying?

Very mucky! If that were mine I would cut all the manky stuff off, however low, it wont recover so cut right down and destroy. see if it comes through ok. I don't like sprays but maybe in this case a dose of something may help. 

What are these bugs in the pond?

It might be a good idea not to fish stuff out of your pond, best left quiet, still and peaceful.

Our Morrisons bedders are fantastic, someone or two are there to water them they are all on damp matting, at 3.00 for 2 trays, they are very good,

just bought my daughter 12 red geraniums, big enough to plant out for 3.00, not bad at all.

I would send an email to them stating what you have just said.

Knowing T and M you may never get them!

Bear in mind I think this grower is in US, maybe be different growing conditions?
