Lovely piccy's Marion, could you pease tell me..... the little round silvery leaf, just below the white hebe,  is it ...Jack Frost, I cant think of the name !

Is it usually evergreen, I would like to buy some of those, very striking.

Is that a toy boat amongst the Broom?, meant to ask the other day.

Thats really nice Tootles, its lovely to have the photos to look back on. I have one just bolted onto paving slabs, perfectly adequate.

Is there a comfy chair in there? Need something to sit on when you take your tea in there to get away from it all.

I start mine mid March indoors, here is a very good informative site, this is exactly what I do. If you follow this you will have a wonderful show right through till Autumn.Dead heading is very important to keep the flowers coming. I always pick off the first buds to enable the plant to put all energy into growing first.

RB, you are naughty  I didnt know where to look, Spring in the air in your household as well.

Our Doves are at it as well. Both male and female blackbirds in the garden but nothing in that department as yet.

Thank you RB for all the kind thoughtful and extremely helpful pm's.

You have been so very helpful and supportive to me, both in just light friendly chats and also very useful help with coping with my mums problems.  

Happy New Year to you and family

New generation of gardeners here today!

One isnt bothering with compost heaps anymore, Bumpie doesnt weed.

If I do put bark on the ground, I follow up with fertilizer, I cant afford to buy multi compost for mulching so compost heaps and weeding are still for me.
