Thanks Dove

Hedgehogs?

Posted: 21/02/2014 at 22:36

We are clearing part of the garden. OH has strict instructions to go very carefully as there is lean to wood and lots of leaves (very deep layer) that would be an ideal place for them to go. However have never seen or heard one here. 

Thought of Dove while I was giving out take care instructions

 

Wishful thinking probably

Hello All

Not been here for a while as my Mum passed away. Still very feeling raw so will only pop in.

Not much else to say really except today seems to be a sunny day, next 'weather' due over the weekend.

Hope everyone is in one piece especially those near the coast

Thinking of growing a Cob Nut tree

I am thinking about planting a cob nut tree. - I have the space.

I would like to hear of experiences with them - recommended varieties, length of time before I have a harvest, pruning, downfalls etc, pollination

Thanks for help

 

Whats your plans for next year.

garden plans for the year:

Make a stumpery with a mini wild life pond

Finish planting up white garden - it's finding suitable plants at right price causes delays.

plant up perennial border again (made a hash of it last year so will start again)

May not complete this but will 'do' something in an area that needs some interest added to it. Maybe put up a rustic trellis division or something - needs lot more thought

Grasses

Thank you for comments all, very helpful and as ever lots of ideas for other grasses to try. So based on  what is said will tidy the lower leaves of the Stipa gigantea but otherwise just let it get on with growing all by itself.

Pennisetums I have cut back, Thing is everything seems to be in spring mode because of the lack of a cold winter
