Dr Hessayon quits writing

Posted: 15/12/2013 at 19:21

I value books by garden writers that can put over information clearly, like Dr H and those who can write, like Christopher Lloyd.

I don't value those with half a page of large print saying how pretty it looks, a glossy photo and a celebrity name on the cover

Don't forget to sow that Yellow Rattle in grass soon Stacey. That's a good collection of wild flower seeds

I couldn't do without my books. Internet is Ok but books will always have a placefor me.

I'm probably misunderstanding how much space you have. I picture a bed 2 foot deep with 2 shrubs within that 2 foot,  one behind the other

Is Cestrum nocturnum like C. parqui Gg? I nursed that through one mild winter but that was it.

I think you're OK with the spelling Verdun, just wondering where mine is. I rather lost control of it all this year and can't remember its location. Maybe if it's nice tomorrow I'll have a proper look round.

My Stipa has been where it is for at least 15 years and has never been split, it would be a big job now but maybe I'll have a go next spring

Thanks Gardengirl, I'll watch that later, maybe just the cottage garden bit.

My S. gigantea still looks great. It's right outside the kitchen window and catches the afternoon sun. I don't see the foliage, that's below windowsill level

I think the offence is to cause or allow them to spread onto farmland.
