HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Lack of drainage got me thinking about a pond, but clematis location not suitable - sun all day, next to an arch, bottom of kids slide (working on getting rid of the slide this year, if I'm allowed!). Have another place in mind for pond though. Hopefully I'll not get carried away as I usually do, instead I'll plan this year and dig next! yeah right she says with spade almost in hand!

Dug a huge hole for a clematis last week, filled with water , thankfully pre planting....absolutely no drainage! Clem relocated in pieris spot, massive back breaking job to move the pier is to the other side of the garden. Will plant annual black eyed Susan or morning glory where clem was going ( I was very clever in original post using proper names by the way!).

Ah, DD, remember reading shadow was ill. sounds like sad news, so sorry.

I dont sleep well as others have mentioned above, I downloaded not 1 but 3! meditation apps last night! Woken this morning by son setting off alarm - he was putting my secateurs away for me! 

Decided to try several small posts instead of one long one!

Stipa tenuissima - comb or cut ?

Very interesting stuff, folks! I'm in Yorkshire so, thanks PD, I think it's combing for me! I often watch GW 3 weeks late and the ' jobs for the weekend' tend to be spot on for up here on that time frame!

hi all!

I started by sweeping the soil away from the pots where some creature has been digging the bulbs up!

Then hacked the buddleia down to about 5' - earliest I've ever remembered to do it but so so much easier! note in diary for next year!

That about did me in so back on the sofa with coffee and Green and Blacks.

Decided I'm going to Tatton Park on the Saturday of the flower show in July with mum, and 2 sisters. OH bought me RHS membership for xmas so may as well make the most of it, although I'm buying all 4 tickets for their birthdays!

Morning all. Not been here for a few months. I'm on holiday at the moment, its 6.10pm in Japan. Wrong time of year for garden visits really bit will put a few pictures on gardens visited thread when I get back home on sun/Mon. Just lucky enough to catch the earliest hint of blossom in Tokyo - plum as its too early for the cherry blossom.
Hope you are all well and I'll catch up in a few days.
