I'm so so bored stiff

Posted: 02/01/2014 at 17:55

I was stick picking all morning, lovely.

Shredding tomorrow if it's not wet. Wet shredding is bad.

Then I can sort out the roadside 'hedge', weave straggly bits into our version of hedge

laying done a few years ago. Cut some off, then more shredding.

Then some pruning and more shredding.

And I'll probably get frustrated when I can't be out there but there's 2 half pairs of trousers to finish making. 5 pairs of curtains to shorten and put thermal lining on.

Then I need to do some letter writing for a couple of organisations which will mean a long session putting email addresses in my address book.

All will be well and spring will come James.

Diane, I know about wet Wales. I was walking near my son's house (valleys) and saw duckweed on the pavement

 

beech hedging / what can i grow undrneath

Posted: 02/01/2014 at 17:12

How wide is the border joe. I wouldn't grow anything under a hedge unless cyclamen or something else very small seeded there. And I wouldn't grow anything right up against a hedge in a narrow border either, it would give a very mean, cramped look.

 

Physocarpus out growing space

Hi Novice. this is a naturally large quick shrub. Its response to cutting back is to grow even faster. Maybe it's just too big for the space available and should be replaced by something smaller

James I know just how you feel but i call it frustration not boredom. I've got plenty to do on these wet and windy days but it's not what I want to do. I want to out to play.

I think a day late after yesterday's weather is totally acceptable MM,

and it does cheer you up.

Lovely day, suitable for a big stick pick up. Might even be time and energy to stuff the shredder as well

 I've got a whole day of picking up sticks tomorrow.

The next day I can put them through the shredder.

The next day there'll be another lot down.

Roll on spring and real gardening.
