Pachysandra terminalis "Green Carpet"

Posted: 27/07/2017 at 09:29

I have Pachysandra growing under a Yew tree, very dry and deep shade.

I think all the other plants mentioned would do well too.

I have some doubts whether the smaller bulbs would push through the Pachysandra, as it can form quite a dense clump.

Hi all.

Well it has finally stopped raining, a lot of local roads flooded last night, but other than some white water in the stream [ had to shut bedroom window last night, as it was so noisy ] everything is fine.

Mum phoned last night, said she wanted to move back home. Think she was being a bit wilful and she is blaming my 2 sisters and I for making the decision for her moving.

Have a good day.

Right plant, right place (aruncus dioicus)

Here I grow it in my bog garden and it thrives.

Not sure it needs full sun though, think it will be ok. in partial shade.

A young Kestrel, note the chestnut back.

Hi all.

Miserable wet day here.

I hate shopping, literally came out in a cold sweat whilst trying on suits, I think the assistant was a bit concerned.

You are a better man than me Hosta. I would want to know who it was and then I would want to plan my revenge. Futile, but fun.

It would be helpful if we could see them.

Fantastic achievement, would have taken me months and would have looked terrible.

Like the idea of the Stipa too, should hide the gap nicely.

E.characias Black Pearl, looks great in my garden.

Long lasting flowers and  glaucous leaves.

Dandelion type flower ID?

Lovely when a lawn can serve a useful purpose, rather than being a bland monoculture.
