Purple Tree?

Posted: 03/11/2014 at 10:48

I like it as it is I'd just prune off a few stragglers

As Hostafan says, the choice is yours. What would look more appropriate in your garden, a knarled, lichen covered tree or a bush of large purple leaves.

 

Calendula seedlings

If you've got lots you could try some but they do get damaged in a hard winter.

I'd pot some on and protect them in the worst of weathers. coldframe or cold GH, they won't need heat.

Got squirted by a garden slug

I remember those copulating slugs from one of David Attenborough's programmes

Look away now if you're squeamish

Slugs roost (or whatever slugs do) under pots in my nursery. I pick them off til I get a handful, then put them on the slabs and tread on them. They always ooze slime on my hand en route to their death. 

Always read the label!

I often line up pots of babies and just label the one at the front, the ones behind are obviously all the same. Then along come more plants and everything gets shifted up, the lines aren't lines any more and all order is gone. Loads of 'could be anythings', often plants not previously grown, no idea what's what.

Do I ever learn?

Not so far
