Not been on these boards for nearly a week as I had to have my lovely Phoebe put to sleep on Friday,  she was nearly 16 and had a heart murmur and a chest infection hadn't eaten anything for 36 hours so made the decision to ease her suffering so as you can imagine I've been out of sorts big time......................so seeing this post I thought it would give me a break and some light reading  and I'm liking it very much,  well thought of MMP keep it going  


Lost and found in your garden

I've lost my Blue bells and Crocosmia I'm  hoping that they turn up as I do love them both,  no sign in the garden of either at the moment maybe just laying low till it warm's up a bit

I'm having a heat wave,  well 8.1c is a heat wave after the past few  weeks,  been lovely in the garden today with the sun,  and there was some heat in it if I got out of the prevailing wind,  supposed to be a bit warmer tomorrow as well but I won't hold my breath.

I've been out in the garden today turning over borders and planting stuff,  happy I was and away with the mixer when it suddenly dawned on me that there are no worms in the garden,  normally when I start digging the first sod has at least 3 worms in this is nt a good sign is it,  lack of worms means no air in the soil or even food for the birds,  I know they don't go that far down in the soil I just hope that I was unlucky in my digging but somehow I don't think so.

Oh this looks like it might be a struggle,  one of them is in flower at the moment,  I was going to put them in the ground this morning but it has snowed through the night,  I think I shall look out for some Orientalis for next year,  I shall have a look at those sites as well,  thank you everyone for the advise and what could be losses,  I still have all the seeds that I set away this month so finger's crossed that they take.

Thanks for that Bob,  the dampest one for me then will be the North facing one so that will be their new home

I went into my local B+M store today and low and behold in the garden section outside I found some Helleborus Niger so as they were reduced from £2.99 to £2.25 (not a lot I know)  I got them,  it says on the plant section of GW to put them in a shady spot the question is this,  is it shady all the time, or just through the day,  I have a North Facing and an East facing border so which would be the best for them,  I've never grown these before.

I'm still leaving mine till later,  each to their own I guess
