Loving yours Mrs G.

Need some more id's please!

Yes that is what 3 is. I was sure it was a poppy, but could not remember which one.

Eremurus problem

As above. In autumn I would dig it up and replant where it is not encroached on by other plants. I would also add lots of grit to keep the crowns well drained. Beautiful if you get it to flower.

KEF, I am surprised you did not mention your Meconopsis!

My Lupins have been dreadful, too lazy to do night time slug patrols. I am hopeful for my tree lupins for next year though. Seed raised this year, and already 2 foot tall.

PS it looks fantastic and you should be able to make something beautiful in it.

Before doing a planting plan, you need to know what type of soil you have, ie acid/alkali, clay/loam/sand.

Next you need to decide what sort of plants you like [ look in a few books/magazines ], and what colour scheme you fancy.

Morning all.

Tidying house, as the cleaner is coming today, does that make any sense?

Weather grim again, but I do need to plant out some dahlias and Cannas. Some of my biennial seeds are also ready to be pricked out.

Have a good day eveyone.

Weeds covered all over my slate chippings

Weeds will turn up whatever you do. A weed suppressing membrane would help, but weeds will still appear. I would use weedkiller every few months to keep it looking nice.

Wild rhododendron

Yes, looks like R. ponticum. They can be pruned, but they often dont flower the year after pruning. It will grow to a humungous size in a few years, but I like them.
