Just enjoy it mags. It's hardy, you don't need to hide it in a cold frame. It's celebrating youyr superior nursing care. It will probably flower again at the more normal time

What is this yellow flower?

If you  search for Calendula officinalis you'll find lots of photos RA

I knew there was something missing in my garden. 


Just dig over that patch that's never been touched will you please.The half bricks can go on the pile over there. The plastic, metal and asbestos (cough when you say that word) can go in that rubble sack and we'll decide what to do with it later.

After that; all the shed sticks from the willow can be put through the shredder and those two trees really need to come down before they damage something.

I'll make the coffee.

Ah yes, lovely

There's uually some tree work to be done and there's already enough shredding to keep me busy for a few days.

This year there are 3 trees that need cutting back from the power wires and one over hanging some steps which needs to be brought down in bits before it crashes down and demolishes steps. It's got a good lean on it and it right in line. 

Then there are plants to rescue before OH digs a trench to rain water so we aren't flooded for weeks again this year.

And when all that's done and it's too wet to go and look for signs of re-awakening garden?

I'll just go into a deep decline

I've PMd you Dove.

Hello the rest of you 

can you make a free hedge?

Hazel is pretty quick as well. Hawthorn a bit slow in the first couple of years but then it shoots away.

My box took 20 years to reach about 6 foot

got the christmas smileys on the PC but not on the netbook Dove. Not bothered really, my use of smileys is quite small, never got the feel for them

can you make a free hedge?

I don't think any will do the job quickly, except maybe willow which would give you a new set of problems in the future
