Under Attack!

I think the leaves are too grey/blue for that one and too white on the back of the ones that are curled round.

I think it might be worth letting one of these grow to see what you are dealing with.

Another ID please

Good idea re the business Mike but we might both be due some retirement now.

 

This year's lodgers

The bats didn't listen they made the nursery roost over a south facing dormer window with little space and it's all gone wrong.

4 babies dead in the gutter, cooked I should think. The adults were coming out in the day time to escape the heat but the babies are too young.

That's two years running. That plus 2 very cold winters and one wet one. No wonder there aren't many bats flying about now. We have had 200+.

Now nothing is eating the mozzies and they're on the increase

Another ID please

gardening for a living

Lots of people do make a living at it Kevin.

I don't know how knowledgeable a gardener you are or will be but I'd try and set up as a bit more than someone who mows, cuts hedges and weeds. Learn how to prune properly rather than cutting back to fit. Know what plants are and how to treat them. You'll then get a good reputation among people who want more than a square lawn and 'a bit of colour' which will make it more interesting for you

roots in soil

Hi eddm, welcome to the forum

I'd remove some of the roots, you'll break them when you dig anyway.

Soil next to a wall tends to be rather dry. I suggest you make that border quite a bit wider so you don't need to plant close to the wall. It will be better for the plants and look less 'mean'

Give it a good dig and get some muck/compost in there if you can.
