Sprig's Garden

Posted: 10/04/2014 at 16:17

It all looks lovely Sprig and so well planned, you're obviously enjoying yourself as well. What else is as rewarding as the things we create and love. Hope you get time to sit and relax in your garden as well as all the work you put in.

What are these I potted up?

I can't remember what I have here, can you help? Thanks.

Well, I got over my hunger pangs and have been playing out again.

Verdun's miscanthus is now in situ - although not where I thought it was going to go - my gardens a bit too flexible, or 'fluid' if I'm being fancy - anyway, I mean I change my mind a bit too often! Also had to move another grass to compliment it. Think it will look nice when everything is growing well in a few months. Working hard towards trying to get secret and hidden areas to some degree.

Only saying the other day - must try some pasque flowers.

Good luck with the wedding plant orchid, do you know which flowers she's having in her bouquet?

A couple of pics of the border I've been working on this morning (after sorting fence stuff out on the other side). planted out miscanthus (can't really see in these pics, still q small, it's to the side of the Tom Thumb) which got me to move another (?) grass so they are now staggered either side of new path. Planned where some perennials will go in the top section. Can't wait for the acer to get going and be partly hidden by lupins and grasses.

Jac, you've made a lovely garden there, and so tidy. Welcome and hope to see lots more of you and your garden.

Love and best wishes to you Mike, it's great to read your posts, wonderful experience, knowledge and insight. I hope you will be able to continue being involved with the forum during your illness and treatment, if not we will still be thinking fondly of you and wishing you well. Love also to those close to you that they may support you through this time. I hope the experiences and knowledge of the above posts give you some strength to help you through.

Hope the GH is worth the initial effort KEF and it makes it to it's new home in just the right number of pieces, not too many

Hoping Oh will be replacing two fence panels at W-end. So I've dug around the concrete posts, moved and repositioned what plants I could  from mine and NDN gardens, then put some slabs down so he can strategically place his feet! Hope the plan works but in reality will get trampled plants right left and centre!

Now feel pathetically weak, had a good breakfast earlier but feel like I need to eat. Didn't want to stuff my face with chocolate and biscuits (well actually I did want to  but resisted), instead had a cereal bar, a banana, a yoghurt and 10 minutes later when still felt no better had a thick slice of bread and butter. Might as well just have had a couple of biscuits!


Anyone got hydrangea glam rock?

Not sure Peter, I've never had a small one. Maybe someone else will have a look in and help you out.
