My Perfumed Bristol Garden in 2016.

Posted: 11/05/2016 at 20:35

I think I got mine as "free" bulbs from GW with Queen of the Night and Purple Prince.

What memories do your plants bring back?

  The smell of lavender reminds me of my grandma who taught me to make lavender sachets to put amongst clothes. Also, sweet peas remind me of her.


The smell of tomatoes in a green house and sheds always remind me of the large green house cum shed we had, and my Dad.


Red pelargoniums remind me of my Nan who grew them on her windowsill.

Don't you just love freebies

Ooh lucky you. Why doesn't anything like that happen to me?

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Finished potting up/pricking out and, between downpours, all plants now put into the greenhouse or outside with self watering trays and capillary matting in place ready for hols. Also evicted numerous slugs and snails.

I'd be out ALL night and still there would be dozens of the b*******s. When I used beer traps, the only things I caught were (dead) black beetles.


If your strawberries are in a raised bed, could you erect some framework over it and cover it with netting to keep hedgehogs/children out?

Your garden looks lovely Marion. Are those orange tulips called ballerina? I have some like that in their 3rd year and still doing quite well.

I agree with you on the Malvern Show coverage. I get a bit fed up with Chelsea although I do watch it all just to get a gardening fix. I usually record it so that I can fast forward through repeated bits.


Did you get much rain in the end? We've just had a little shower and a rumble of thunder over this side of town.

Have I grown too much

nutcutlet re holidays..... It's the only time that fits in with other events/One & Only's taxi service requirements/not in school holidays. We have to go otherwise my Mum will not have a holiday, again.

I've just come in after doing a bit of plant shuffling. We're going on holiday next Friday so I have to finish potting up/pricking out and move everything currently in the conservatory to the greenhouse. This means that some of the plants currently in the greenhouse have to go outside! It's a good job the weather's warmed up a bit!


This will definitely be the last time I book a holiday in May EVER!

Your pictures look even better on the new format Marion.
