Snowdrop Walk - East Anglia

I've never met Viburnum nudum Punkdoc. I googled it and acid or neutral soil is mentioned. I'm very alkaline . Looks nice though if you have the right conditions

Lily some of my snowdrops are still hiding.

I should think you could do that with any broad leaved grass or reed  (like the dried off ones in the background which are likely to be what he's used)

If I were attempting it, I'd arrange them then make a stencil to spray the middle part a different colour. But I'm no Andy Goldsworthy

Would like a artificial grass course recommendation please

Lovely here, raining earlier. Finally got the seeds labelled 'sow in January' into pots and out in the world.

I'll have a stroll round the estate this afternoon, check on the hellebores and snowdrops. Wonderful scent from the viburnum whateveritis when I walked by earlier. Heron sitting by the pond. Gone as soon as it saw me

Snowdrop Walk - East Anglia

I've still got my eye on the ball. They start 27th. Looking at my snowdrops the 1st  or maybe second week in Feb seems likely.

As I said on the other thread, OH has car in workshop for a new oil seal, he's done the bit where you take it apart, (in less than a day) so it's find the seal and put it all together now. I'd be very surprised not to be on the road by the beginning of next week. Plenty soon enough



What's your day been like?

I think I'll bring that Snowdrop thread up there may be people that haven't seen it

Hi artjak

Going buy my snowdrops we're still looking at the first couple of weeks in Feb.I've got nothing fully out and some very far back indeed. 

Not too quick to develop I hope as OH has the car in bits in the workshop replacing an oil seal.

They're running from 27th January to early March and the check page isn't live yet

I'm sure you can divide them Clarington, you did  It's just not what's usually done.

I shouldn't think it will affect them adversely, other perennial plants are improved by it

Rock salt weed control?

I can understand anyone that doesn't want to use chemicals to deal with weeds but rock salt is just another chemical and not one that's for that job
