Thanks FB I thought it might have been those pesky Vine Weavils. I can live with it now knowing that the bees are happy . I've never seen this before are they making a nest?
They are eating my rose leaves! Yes for weeks I've wondered what has been eating the leaves
then I spotted this!
and this one maybe bit of more than he could carry!
is anyone else experienceing this?
Now I don't want to be acused of plugging this site I've only ordered 1 brew kit for my husbands valentines present from them! They were so helpful.
I found a great recipe on Brew UK for Champagne. Hugh Fernley Whitinstone made it on one of his programs.
Cheap plants and sundries! plain and simple. We have a few garden centers near us, they tend to put in coffee houses which is a nice idea if there is a huge area to get round and you'd like to take a break at some point. They tend to be a bit on the expensive side. The most successful little garden shop is a family run business who have a great selection of reasonably priced plants, and sundries they also have a fruit and veg area where you can buy their own grown produce. If your looking for something specific they'll source it for you and they are really knowledgable about what they sell.
Thanks for this SS I've saved in my favourites to show Mr RD when he comes home from work, we where also talking of installing a fence of this sort. everything they mention in the article rings true for us. We used to be away every weekend until we where forced to give up our bolt hole in the lake district. I might even print it off and post it through their door!
On the other hand my husband made a raised bed at the back of our garage and I buried my conifer nearly a quater up its trunk
Its been in for at least 10 years and is thriving ok
mmmmm I always think Azalea flowers tend to be more clumped together and if you look at the dispensed flower head it looks more like a Rhodii. Also the leaves look quite large and leathery! I may be wrong!
How do you differentiate a Rhodii from an Azalea? It looks a bit mildewed too! or in need of a good feed
top one looks like a rhodoendron, the bottom one looks like a sedum of some sort
Now that looks interesting Jungle Jim does it have a name? I didn't even know you could get soundproof fencing! thats another great idea Thanks JJ
Thanks Topbird I am indeed going on holiday at the end of July!
