lawn vs border area coverage in garden

Posted: 28/12/2016 at 16:30

I'd be afraid of ending up with that as well


There are no rules, it's your garden. You don't have to have a lawn though it's nice to have somewhere to sit. A bit of paving would do.


Looking at that photo there doesn't appear to be any permanent planting, all bedding, so you'd have nothing in winter, you need a shrub or some.

Lawn to meadow

I THINK YOU'VE COVERED IT THERE PANSYFACE.


THE  SOIL WILL BE FULL OF WEED SEEDS TO COMPETE WITH WHAT YOU SOW. WILD FLOWER MEADOWS AREN'T AN EASY OPTION EVEN WHEN YOU'VE WORKED OUT WHICH TYPE YOU WANT. WITHIN THE PERENNIAL MEADOW THERE IS ALSO A CHOICE. SPRING FLOWERING, YOU MOW FROM MID-SUMMER OR AFTER THE PLANTS SET SEED,  AND LATE FLOWERING, WHERE YOU MOW UNTIL SUMMER. THAT'S SIMPLIFYING IT A BIT

CALM DOWN PANSYFACE AND STAY OFF THE BOOZE NOW

Treated hyacinth bulbs outside now

if your weather is like ours I think the shock will be too much for the flowers though the bulbs should survive unless it gets even colder with all day frosts and the pot, bulb and compost freeze solid

I can't remember if I grew mine from seed Fishy, it's a very long time ago. 


You know where there's a lump if you want some 

Bamboo

Posted: 27/12/2016 at 09:05

It's hard to let things go but this bamboo is too tall for purpose.. If you cut it back you'll just get canes, as kgarden says, they won't regrow from where you cut. 


You could cut out a few canes completely, that could reduce the effect of the wind. If you starve it a bit the new canes that grow might be shorter (but I don't know that, just an idea)


I think you need a smaller bamboo
