Your opinion is in there AnniD. That's probably the most important one

Opinion will always be divided, peoples' expectations and desires are all different.

Mulching in summer

Posted: 11/06/2015 at 15:02

I think it's more about dry than hot isn't it? Mulch needs to go on moist soil or it keeps soil dry rather than moist

It's all a matter of opinion and what sort of garden you want B3. I like it. If I was trying to grow alpoines and other small plants I probably wouldn't want it

Good intentions ...

True obelixx. There's a strip just outside my garden where the farmer sprayed the grass dead and all the annual weeds moved in They sit there and the prevailing wind sends the seeds my way. 

It's improving though, he used to spray through the fence onto our garden till OH shouted at him 

What to do with my tree peony

I cut some of the older stems right back to base, usually as part of a spring clear up.

Good intentions ...

One year I'll get round to removing all the goosegrass/cleavers/sticky willie/Galium aparine before it sets seed all over the garden again


A wild flower

I didn't read my link, just looked at the picture

I shall have to investigate. I wouldn't have put that in papaveraceae either.

I've heard Linaria vulgaris, aka toadflax called wild antirrhinum. I don't think that's what you've got there. 

I should think it's a descendent of antirrhinums previously grown in the garden. Has the top growth all broken off from the root? If so it might be worth seeing if there's regrowth but they are short lived as perennial, some people consider themto be annuals. You may find seedlings appear to take its place if you've allowed it to seed in previous years. I hope it works, it's a fine plant
