Morning all.
Ggirl, enjoyed under the dome last time it was on - are those showing now a new series or repeats??
Bulb guilt here too - thought id done enough last year but just realised I pulled em out for the 'feather bed', no idea where they are now :/
Most of trees bearing up to the wind but still worried about liquidambar Lane Roberts. it was still very soft at the top and is weeping a bit. Think I should have tried to harden it off somewhere sheltered before planting, the guy in the GC said it looked to have been kept somewhere warm before it came to him. Might need a call to GC to see how best to support it and get its shape back.

Cercis, Acer ( not if exposed site), sambucus nigra, witch hazel,sorbus,

Do you want height, width, autumn colour, flowers, easy care?

First? Morning all you sleepy heads

Well, I had a walk around the garden. Restaked the new trees, extra support to liquidambar as it was looking more weeping than columnar. GC guy said it was soft as stored somewhere warm before delivered to them so not hardened off properly. Hope it will be ok, if not it'll be getting replaced by GC. Other than that I just looked in despare at plants and came back in :/
Hope you all have a more fruitful garden day.
