Hi flumpy, I've an hour to spend in the garden, then taking mum to craft fair where sister is selling her hand made bird houses amongst other garden lovelies. suns out so a bit frustrated the days taken up elsewhere...even though it'll be a nice day out

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!).

Stipa tenuissima - comb or cut ?

Posted: 20/03/2016 at 08:06

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! 

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

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!
