Four O Clock Flowers

If this is Mirablils jalapa, the flowers don't last long but there are a lot of them. I love the scent but they're not very striking visually.

Have you got it inside Safeer? I've only had one plant go through a mild winter.

 They may indeed have got the bad vibes Forester. I may give them off strongly at times. Ask any houseplant

I was given 3 plants last year. the fruits fell off every time they they nearly got ripe. It may not have been the plants' fault

I wouldn't have grown them if I hadn't been given them, I don't like them much

Nice blog higgy

I recommend Pulmonaria rubra for early bees. It's in flower already and will still be flowering when the other pulmonarias open up.

 These peacocks though they were hibernating in the woodshed but had to be rehoused if not to be burnt

beech hedging / what can i grow undrneath

I'd widen it by a few feet and plant well away from it. Leave the 3 feet as breathing room for the hedge and maintenance space for you. Plants will probably grow better then. But choose those that like it dry.

I'm so so bored stiff

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

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.
