The Great Chelsea Garden Design Challenge

Posted: 15/05/2015 at 16:09

I am looking forward to seeing the Chelsea garden up close and personal, although overall I did not really like any of the gardens, even though I enjoyed the programme concept.

You do not need to feed anything like once a week. I tend to feed my borders twice a season, which is more than adequate.

HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 14/05/2015 at 13:28

Cold here to fidget.

Have given up my planning session in the garden and retreated to the greenhouse for a while. Glad to see most of my Dahlias are growing quite strongly in their pots. It will be a marathon session to get them all in the ground.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all.

Cold and grey here, but no frost.

Very achy after last two busy days. My oldish bones can't cope with physical effort as well as they used to.

An easy day today, planning for perfection. Do you think a gardener is ever happy with what they have created? Do we ever think our gardens are "done". I hope not.

HELLO FORKERS!

Hard evening on the sofa, drinking G@T , after another busy day in the garden.

Just get the feeling that things are slowly taking shape, but having said that, I still have a greenhouse full and many window sills, all waiting to go out some where.

Managed to spend most of the day moving existing plants to " better " locations, trying to paint a better picture. Very pretentious I know.

My ducks do not seem to be nesting here this year, for which I am grateful, as in other years, I have spent my time trying to rescue the chicks when they get into the stream and can't get back into pond. The ducks still visit most days, which is nice.

Tomorrow I can feel a bout of total laziness creeping in, possibly nursing a hangover, if I continue on the gin.

Night all and good luck to any exam sitters tomorrow, possibly not the time to mention, that I loved exams.

 

azaleas for a beginner

Hi WW. It would be better if you could plant them in the ground, for better moisture availability.

Check your pH, it may be ok.

If not mix ericaceous compost with leaf mold and feed with sequesters iron and seaweed extract.

I find those bags you can seal, normally used for sandwiches, very good.

I still think some of the Chelsea gardens are beautiful, with many good ideas, even though most of them are just an installation.

I am certainly looking forward to going again this year.

coffee & tea

Tea comes from a Camelia and is grown successfully in Cornwall. Growing from seed will take you many years.

I don't think coffee will grow here.
