Totally amazing, please do everything you can to keep it in some form.

Disagree with you Hosta, surely not!

I think you might be right.

Growing shubs close to fence to limit spread

I think that the shrubs mentioned, will grow too large for the size of you garden, but I am sure others will disagree.

A lot of white plants against an almost white background, not sure how that will work.

A bit more height might be better. How about some trellis, with a climber?

IMO 2m. wide  with 5.4m. long, would be much better proportions than 5 X 1. It would also allow a more tiered planting scheme.

remember you are highly unlikely to get it right first time, I change most of my borders, most years and I am not expecting to finish any time soon.

Hi all.

Snowing and freezing cold here.

Rib is causing major pain, probably because I keep coughing, at least it has got me out of SM shopping. Feel a bit guilty as OH is doing everything for me, except leaving something for my lunch!

We have Dippers on our stream, but only after it has flowed through the garden.

Great birds.

Am having to resort to high dose alcohol, as the rib is so painful.

Lovely story.

So much better than all the normal crap we have to endure.

Good on you Clari.

Hi all.

I continue to cough and have now damaged a rib, so am in a lot of pain too. At least the weather is foul, so I am not missing much.

Sorry Joyce, but yes, plus overwhelming lethargy.

Nice cake Chicky, you were always my favourite!

Another day on the sofa, just can't seem to shake this virus.

Fascinating how many mathematicians there are on here, do gardening and maths go together?

I have to admit it is a bit of a struggle for me, but I am so fascinated by the idea of Astrophysics that I have to get a handle on the maths.

The older I get the more I realise that maths is the basis for everything else in the world.

Need to get a move on and cook supper for the worker, when she returns.
