Two days in the garden, kinda feel a bit more satisfied now, but the weed killer didn't work on the paths so still got that to do. The jobs that have been bugging me can't be done till ' Lucifer ' has finished his stuff, but then the plant moving / re jigging will begin!
Hope you've all had a good weekend.

There we go! I knew if I looked back enough I'd find how to work this site - couldn't post so eventually found a post (Kef?) telling me how to use 'basic editor' from settings! So here I am! A bit late for anyone I suppose?
I had wanted to post a new thread for ID - but little miss clever clogs remembered what it was after a couple of hours... I have a plant called Baptista - however I wish I'd not looked it up cos now I know it's in the wrong place and doesn't like moving!
I'm not at all happy with much in my garden this year, love all the plants but want them ALL rearranged!
Spent the day pottering, pondering the autumn moves, grass cutting, tinkering, and then an evening of watering (after lovely OH fixed both hosepipes).
Missed your errr mishaps (!) last night Edd! Have a lovely time on your venture and see you at xmas!

Oh wow. Didn't know that cannas could be left in pots. Always thought they needed plenty of room and to be deep in soil.
Btw - morning all! Sleepy this morning but gotta get moving coz leaving a bit earlier as there are major roadworks with inevitable delays. Have a good one everyone

Dead weeping cherry...why?

Thanks ladies.  as there seems to be some remote hope I have said sorry to it ( watered well at first then admittedly forgot ). It now has a dressing of leaf mould and loads of water, and a bit of weed fabric on top to stop evaporation. I'll give it until next spring and keep my fingers tightly crossed - apart from when I'm watering it of course!

How lovely beaus ans lesley

enjoy your day BL.

Went to plant fair (alone), enjoyed it but only bought alpines for sisters birthday. Resisted temptation for myself.

Went to local GC, explained recently bought weeping cherry was dead, not too interested , if I bring in a branch they may be able to help diagnose why, not likely to get refund or replacement!
