Anyone been to Ripley Castle gardens? we are going to see friends in harrogate at the weekend and I've convinced OH a garden visit would be in order but the website isn't too inspiring (part of 2for1 GW offer).

Watch ou tFidget's about! Well done you!

Is there any reason Ive been out in mizzle at 7.30 sowing seeds? No GH to do it in either, no nice n cosy space. Couldn't bear to direct sow poor little things so popped them in GH. Cornflower polka dot mix and Love in a mist. Sown 70+ squirrel tail grass seeds, ah bless 'em, says they can take 'a long time to germinate' oh dear, and they are supposed to be outside not in GH. Just can't do it. Warming glass of red, ahhh.

OOO, a bit ambitious Emma! We just put weed fabric and bark down. I crawl under occasionally to weed it but usually a weedkiller spray suffices.

I can make room in the GH Fidget as most overwinter stuff is now outside.

Water well towards late summer, mulch well and keep the root area covered.

Planning new 'grasses' path

Went for a wander at GC, nothing much in the way of grasses there.

camassia caerulea,? lychnis jenny,? 

saw the in B&Q overdam £5, but veering towards red, browns, purples.

Also googling saw Muhlenbergia capillaries, which looks fun. 

Have got 2-3 guara but a pink variety which could go well.

Karl F looks good as does imperata, can these be grown from seed?

Got Nigella seeds which will give a low waft! Cosmos but probably too high without staking.

What did you think to the disjointed pathy plan?

Kef, that reminds me, my sis's birthday tomorrow, card still in bag

Been to GC for inspiration for floaty wafty plants and grasses for my new project (yes another one!). 

Ready to sow squirrel tail grass seeds but need a walk in GH for this weather! Enjoy both yours KEF.

Not sure yet obelixx what will go there. Would the same advice apply for other hard material around the Clem such as pebbles? Using small plant pots arm.

Getting more ideas for wafty planting, gypsophilia? Aquillegeas?
Remember seeing ? Penesetium? (spelling?) last year, would that work?
liking fennel as well.
