Evening all.

Lovely day here, but very little done, except for wandering round putting canes in the ground where I think various plants should go. The only problem being, that I can't tell any of the canes apart and of course did not label them.

Roast chicken in the oven, wine open, movie to follow, have fun everyone.

Turned out nice in the end.

Managed a few hours pottering, can't think what I actually did, but it seemed to keep me busy.

Yvie, I don't think you can ever have too many clematis, lots of vertical interest, for very little foot print.

I am not quite sure why you would want to build a rockery in an area which is shady, as the majority of alpine type plants like lots of sun and very sharp drainage.

The main thing is to pot on regularly, rather than put into final size pot immediately. I would pot into the next pot you have , which is slightly bigger.

Morning all.

Eating a hot X bun and then hopefully venture outside.

Have a lovely day.

Cue for the Monty Python sketch?

To one off nematode slugs or not?

No they don't work on snails, as they live above ground.

There is no point using them until soil temperature is above 5C.

Morning all and happy Easter.

Yesterdays sunshine has been replaced with fog and rain.

Hope to get some more seed sowing and potting on done.

Enjoy whatever you are up to.

Not a happy Helleborus

I think it is important to remember that it is only the leaves of H.orientalis that need cutting back.

H,foetidus and H.corsicus should not have their leaves removed.

Hi Runnybeak. It is the exit from the pond, which then flows into the main stream which flows the whole length of the garden, and is lovely when it is not flooding. It can vary from about 3 inches to 4 feet deep.
