NYD flower count 2015

Posted: 01/01/2015 at 10:01

Rose. Cerinthe, Primroses, Kerria Japonica and Hellebores in my garden.  Would have had a dandelion but I dug it up yesterday.  

Has anyone successfully stopped a planning application before?

I believe that anyone can apply for a parcel of land to be designated as a 'village green'.  You just need to be able to prove that it is used by the local population.  I think I would try to investigate this. 

Block Paving

I don't think there is a product available that actually works.  The only way I have found is to remove the moss by hand using a small scrapper/ wire brush.  It's bl**dy hard work and they never warn you before it's laid.

Fast growing hedging

Hedge maintenance will be an annual cost that you should bear in mind.  I have 95 metres of Leylandi that needs cutting each year and it's expensive to get it done.  The new fence may look a more attractive proposition if you factor in maintenance.

More weeds I think??

I think the second one is Oenothera as they self seed very easily.  Have just spent two hours digging them out of some of my flower beds where they don't match the colour scheme.

Hibiscus dormancy

Posted: 06/10/2014 at 15:31

My Hibiscus has already lost its leaves.  I'd plant it out but also send the supplier an email stating that if it fails to come into leaf next year you will want a replacement.  They do take ages to start to get leaves, mine doesn't show any growth until mid May and I'm in the warm south.

If you are a Twitter/Facebook user they appear to be on both.  Very public way to attract their attention

Advice needed

You don't say why you are forced to remove them.  If its because of soil contamination I wouldn't eat them but otherwise go ahead and enjoy them

I did consider it, have been before so thought I'd see if there was anything else.  Thanks for your response
