Hi all this has been growing at the front of my house since almost forever. I'd never really seen it flower before so decided to chop it to the ground last year.

It has come back like this, the flowers are very pretty but I was just wondering what it is, the photos were taken today

Neighbour has trashed our beech hedge!!

That should thicken up quite nicely over the Summer. Most beeches look like that in the dormant season.

HELLO FORKERS!

Hopefully the stuff wont be in there too much longer :P

We very VERY rarely got a frost after the last week of April so another 4 weeks or so and I can think about starting to plant out some stuff and then get some toms and chilli's going!

HELLO FORKERS!

What a lovely morning it was here, horrible now though.

Can't complain as we need some rain (never thought I'd say that)

Washed out all my pots and trays and built up a potting bench.

I'll have to take some photos of inside the greenhouse, it's so full already!

I have way too many canna's, the tuber I used last year just got stupidly big so I had to split it into about 10 plants.

who is sowing what this spring?

Ditto Mike. Usually giving more away than I use myself

 

Better to have too many than not enough!

 

I have only sowed 1 tray of annuals so far, Lobelia,Bidens, Gerberas and some Zinnias which germinated very quickly in the heated propogator. I popped them in the greenhouse today as I dont want them stretching on my windowsill.

HELLO FORKERS!

My mum likes the softness of the leaves, thats why we bought it, it was ever so tiny and looked so innocent :P

Haha yes Fairygirl, I thought that was some kind of joke when I first read it as I'm Welsh :P

Windy here today and it actually rained this morning for the first time in a good few weeks.

Repotted my Lambs Ears into a much bigger pot, didnt realise they got so big haha.

 

Sat in my greenhouse at the moment, surprised the router signal reaches the back of my garden

HELLO FORKERS!

A VERY busy day at work today with the 20% discount on all Gardening and Decorating.

Nice to be busy in the garden centre sharing all my advice with others (and selling plants of course) 

Picked up some ready grown Ranunculus to brighten up 1 of my pots too
