How do you know so much?

Posted: 10/08/2016 at 12:24

A diary is a good idea.Try and remember where you put it.

I have lists of what needs doing last winter somewhere, and the year before that. Creating a new list atm. 

After a while you realise you don't have to know or remember everything, there are generals. Take early flowering shrubs, it doesn't matter what they are, they need pruning (if they need pruning) after flowering. Any other time and you've cut off the next lot of flowers.So that's just the one thing to know instead of lots.

I don't think that's a primula. I think something has seeded by it and taken over. Looks like a mini teasel but there are other plants with spines like that

A couple of ids please

Some are like small trees, if pruned they're more shrubby. there are annuals as well

2 ponds here GD but we didn't build them, they're old gravel diggings, just holes with water that goes up and down in the wet and dry seasons. Very difficult to plant, only the toughest can cope. Lots of life though, newts,dragonflies (larvae in the pond) and other insects.

Sea Holly not thriving

Don't try an upload too large a pic tomorrow, I reduce mine to 30% and they upload. People are always having problems with large files

The brown isn't just the flower dead and seeds forming is it. How about a photo?
