Thanks Maud I might just keep them a bit longer then and see if they come good..... you can never have enough leeks if you ask me!

Lancashire skies.

I can confirm that the mother ship has departed from Lancashire and also Cheshire...... I doubt that we will see them ever again!

Inspiration needed! Sunken patio/lawn edging

Wow thats fantastic... I know when my brothers and I where small we'd have been trying to ride our bikes off there (ramp or no ramp) we might even have stretched to playing parachutes! I see your dilema

 Trellis is a good idea or if you're feeling a bit lazy maybe some bamboo / bamboo screens, you culd always grow some climbers up it, scratchy roses might keep the little angles off?

Good luck, let us know what you did when you're finished!

What's the weather like in your area?

In Lancs..... personally, I'm considering building an Ark!

Well on checking last night, my leeks won't even pass for chives...... no worries, the much beloved's dad to the rescue, (insert fanfare here!)

He's got spares we can have which are ready to dib in!

Leek soup here we come! Whoo hoo!

Peony Pruning?

Thanks all! As ever it's always worth reading in on everyone elses thoughts, and entertaining  Frank and GG. The big one is obviously really happy and if this rain ever stops I'm going to collect the seed and pot them up, if they don't work out I've not lost any money, I don't consider any time spent in the garden wasted!

The 2 sickly children can stay where they are for now. I have a feeling when we crop back the overhang on the trees and bushes we inherited they might do a bit better, we've only held off to give the spagers, blackbirds and thrush chance to raise a second brood! again they haven't cost me anything because they where liberated from Grannys garden before it was sold off I can always split down the big boy if push comes to shove!

Rose "cutting"

Posted: 06/07/2012 at 09:37

Well I checked the cutting last night when I got home and you're right, the wee thing has croaked it!

Joslow, no there weren't any flowers.

We're going on another ramraid this weekend! I might be nearly 40 but we can still lead each other astray and be a bit naughty! The bush is right next to the path so yes you're right there is lots and lots of over acting and hamming up of smelling the pretty flowers!  Hope this one takes!

My dream garden

I can only just remember that summer I hadn't started school but I can remember bizillions on ladybirds they where everywhere, we went on holiday to north wales and even the beach was covered in them!

They are at it again - more flipping bird food....

we've about 5 or 6 nests around the garden, I love watching them they're so cheeky!

we obviously have some which have just fledged over the last day or so, I was watering my pots, yep I know hard to believe with all this rain but they are quite sheltered and there was a baby hiding behind the pot from me hoping I wouldn't see her. She tied flying off but couldn't quite get off the ground. I was a bit worried about the local cat mafia which seems to try and use my garden as a deli so we kept an eye on her from the conservatory she was fine she just needed some space to get a bit of lift. Needless to say she was back with all her siblings to ramraid the seed!

Small tree - any ideas please?

Posted: 04/07/2012 at 13:34

if you want something small and unusual we've got a lovely corkscrew hazel which doesn't take up much room and also give a few nuts come september.....
