Problem privet

Posted: 03/12/2013 at 12:59

We cut our privet back in winter. I hoped it would kill it but it came back stronger than ever.

Washing those large curtains is a real challenge. I managed to force ours into the washing a=machine one at a time  and they're Ok. But they're so old I think it will have been their wash. Maybe a new set within the next few years.

I agree about the potentilla  Roger. I hate that 'cut back to fit' look. 

Ivy, holly and cyclamen - everywhere!!!

I agree about the ivy. It wants removing from shrubs etc before it spoils the shape of them. Also remove from the ground asap in case there are bulbs underneath. It will be hard to remove without spoiling your display later on. Cyclamen will cause no problems, they're lovely

Those are great planters Gardengirl. I can't work out how it's done but I'm sure if I show OH he'll be able to work it out

winter tidy up

Posted: 01/12/2013 at 18:17

I've been moving last seasons shreddings at 5 barrow-loads a day from the heap under the pine trees to put on top of the horse droppings on  a new piece of garden. There's quite a large area, formerly completely covered by 2 laurels which tried to take over the world. I excavated a few barrow-loads of brick and concrete rubble, the odd unidentified lump of metal and some broken asbestos sheet, spread the droppings and now the shreddings. I can plant that up soon.

Then some more sticks for another heap of shreddings

Phygelius - growing question

Posted: 01/12/2013 at 18:06

It doesn't grow well for me. It always looks a bit sick. But it still manages to invade in all directions. I get all the roots and none of the beauty
