2 inches for each flower NewBoy? or each cluster of flowers?

Maybe the shelter is what I lack Dove. 

Sorry Fairy

I'm sure bullaces have another name Fairy, probably several as they come in various colours. They taste like plums but are the size of grapes. Stone in the middle, they are plums

I have a hawthorn that flowers any time and have had some in midwinter. Not this year though, possibly due to the short back and sides it got last year.

I think most of what's flowering now isn't hawthorn or blackthorn, it's those little plum things, bullaces.

Blackthorn is relatively late to flower and the blackthorn winter is that cold bit you get at the end of winter when you thought it was all over. 

That was a long, punctuation-free, sentence wasn't it. Are the grammar police around?

New garden - suggestions for design please

I've heard that about walnuts chicky but things grow under mine. Might relate to black walnut trees.

Lovely place to work on sandy. Walls, I love them.

No good at design though so can't help there.


Is my raised bed safe to use?

Have you got a photo of the larvae? Their ID would point the way forward. But I'm sure you'll be able to use the bed.

The black insects were probably aphids but the larvae are not theirs. I wouldn't cover it, I'd keep digging it over to let the birds get at the larvae, whatever they were.

I think most plants, except for tender ones, are better outside

has anyone underplanted bamboo?

I should think annuals would go until the bamboo makes a bid for world domination

If you've got a good clump of leaves you'll get flowers this year, if you can't see anything they were probably biennial. They're 99% biennial for me.
