Dove - that looks like a fine contraption! Speedy recovery.

BusyL - are you a new grandma? congrats. x

Had a great day out to butterfly and exotic animal place with son, has changed so much in recent years. Managed to get talked into joining RSPB as well so adventures abound.

Measured out for summer house and have actually agreed the size with OH so WONT be having it overtaking the garden after all! Phew! 

Off into the garden now to see what bits I can fit in around cooking a lamb dinner.

Gardened nearly all day in the glorious rain! Thought I'd like a new shape around the lawn, some sort of feature. A summer house would do fine! reshape the ławn, replant, brilliant. OH informed, oh dear! Now we need something the size of the titanic to house a gym! All I want is somwhere to sit, sip wine, chill and snuggle up BUT mainly just a new planting oportunity!

Ive just moved my Salic flamingo (as a standard so on a graft).

I chopped off a main root thinking it was from an old tree!

Can anyone let me know how tough they are and is it likely to survive? 


Flame weed killer

Just got a small flame weed killer, saw Momnty using one on GW so thought I'd give it a go. I seem to think he mowed the paths first then used the flame on the cracks reaching the roots better. I'm going to try it on full weeds tonight and might try the mow first technique tomorrow. Looks like good fun! 

What on Earth is this?

Ah brilliant, thank you!

Im going to empty the container they are in so do I just pop them somewhere in the garden?

Hi all. Just don't know where to start with all the overgrown / merged into one / tapestry effect ! Plants competing for space and attention - just rewards for my greed now coming into play! oops! Must remember that plants need room and not to buy too many. one peony removed. Huechera vastly reduced. Blinkin montbretia eradicated (as far as pos!). But some lovely flowers coming through as well. . Have ordered one of those flame weed killers Monty uses for the paths!!! Can't wait!
