Thanks for you input. I will pass your suggestions on to my husband and if can work out how to do it I will post a picture of the pond.

Thanks for your replies. I thought at £5 per plant I was buying perennials!

Surround for a preformed pond

Posted: 17/03/2013 at 17:58

My husband dug the hole in the summer and fitted a preformed pond. It has an undulating shape. My problem is how to surround it so that the edge is neatened up because at the moment it is getting warped and doesn't look very attractive. He has just bought some paving slabs but is now agonising about how best to fit them. Any ideas please. I have completed many searches on the internet and found very little inspiration.

Winter flowering violas

I bought 4 potted violas from my local garden centre in late autumn and they have flowered all winter and given me much pleasure. I kept them in their original pots and put them on the patio. They are now looking rather sad. They are still flowering but have dark spots on lots of the leaves and are looking a bit straggly. Is there anything I can do to save them and enjoy them again next winter?

creating a flower border

Posted: 17/01/2012 at 22:04

I have nearly fininshed digging my border and am looking for inspiration for an all round the year planting scheme. The border is 1m deep and 20m long with a couple of ins and out ie. not straight. It is backed by a 3m high brick wall and faces north. The garden is surrounded on all sides but can still attract quite strong gusts of wind. The garden is narrow and I read somewhere that if you keep to pastel shades it will create an illusion of depth. Can anyone pelase help me with some planting ideas. Thanks
