Planting bulbs in December

Posted: 13/12/2014 at 18:01

...I've planted Tulips as late as February and they still come up o.k.... some smaller garden centres give them away free at that time...well that's how I got them...

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

I reckon I could go into town on that.... you must have a huge area to cut...

Boston ivy

I certainly wouldn't grow Boston Ivy...that's more for a mansion that employs staff to see to it...

..I like to try something different that you don't see everywhere and wonder if you might like this one... especially as you will be painting your wall a pale shade of green.... This one is evergreen with dark green leaves, and white flowers... self clinging... and not aggressive....   see what you think...

..for Spring flowering I like these... Geranium machorrizum in shades of white and mauve/purple... I like to plant them together for a dainty effect...

Favourite Christmas Song and Carol?

Posted: 06/12/2014 at 20:14

O Holy Night....surprisingly, by the incredible Michael Crawford

alternatively, I like an ethnic version... Jana Mashonee
a quite beautiful rendition I think...

..of course, with rising dental costs.... won't be long before we might be singing this...
