Keeping Cosmos Flowering for Wedding

Posted: 07/07/2015 at 13:02

Our cosmos was a "gift" from the birds. A beautiful and unknown item until they began to flower about 2 weeks ago. Beautiful and delicate yellow and so charmingly well positioned next to one of our roses - a deep red velvety specimen. 

Ground cover plants for a garden I'm never in

Hi Lindsay, I have a long patch of "weeds" as an excuse for grass. As age and its creaking joints creeps ever closer, I'm considering geranium cranes bill, hardy perennial cape daisies,  cistus and lavatera barnsley.  A wild flower border might be an idea. If you have solved your problem with other plants please share them with me.  Good luck

Feathers in Compost?

We make our compost in a similar way to most of you - we also add our shredded paper and loo roll holders - trying to ensure that the ratio is even with the "green".  We've also "made" the liquid plant food from nettles - but not too sure how to deliver the feed - at the roots or over the leaves,!!

Hi everyone!  We're finally enjoying our autumn years, and instead of buying plants each year we're looking to save money and enjoy gardening further. I'm a great fan of Carol Klein and the way she explains how to propagate plants.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">  We have sweet williams in our front garden and would love to know if we can get new plants from these, or how to get their seeds? Can you help please?


Talkback: Wheely quite interesting

I'm new here and hope this is the right place to ask my question! I have an old wheelbarrow (minus it's wheel) which is quite rusty! Is it ok to plant in in this state or should I treat it?  If I need to treat it what should I do?
