Can someone please help me identify this lovely smelling shrub/plant

Posted: 05/03/2014 at 09:21

I don't think it needs ericaceous but a bit of light and leafy and not exposed to full sun or wind. The one I visit regularly has all this and is enormous in a fairly short time

Crocks for ....

Posted: 05/03/2014 at 09:19

Commonsense tells me it's for drainage. Crocks don't hold moisture.

There's always the possibility that it's one of those things that's always been done, passed on through the generations and has no purpose at all.

I've never put crocks in a pot yet

I might not be saying much but there are always plants here and I'll be ready when the time comes. Seeds will be sorted soon.

Companion flowering plants to plant among heathers

Wouldn't it be boring if we all agreed and all our gardens were the same

reusing old conifer stumps

Posted: 04/03/2014 at 22:12

Verdun says conifers contain a tar oil, they are certainly well preserved by it. Other stumps here are rotting away but a large conifer  shows no sign of rot after at least 10 years. A row of stumps I pass regularly has been there even longer.

 Your say's suggestion of drilling holes in it would make it rot more quickly and be useful to insects as it goes.

Where have the birds gone!!!

I certainly did Hostafan and I wasn't even a gardener then. Moorland plants in the Cambridgeshire countryside?
