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

Posted: 29/11/2014 at 21:56

hi Beaus Mum,

the roses I'm awaiting are 'The Generous Gardener' 'The Lark Ascending' and 'The Herbalist'... the first two are for the obelisks...the other one elsewhere...

..I got two of these, although I didn't get them from this site, but from the one mentioned above on this thead, which was a bit cheaper than this one...  these are probably made in China...cheap and cheerful but they will do the job for me for a few years I hope... I already have some smaller ones and very pleased with them...  it's the shape I like so much...

of course, I would rather have bought these here:-

and especially these:-

..but at £350.00 each one......forget it...lol..

Lyn... I love that arch... and it's not too wide either... I hadn't noticed that one before... oh well...

..I used to concrete in my arches when I had them... I found it quite easy to do and made such a difference...

..slightly off topic but I'm becoming quite impressed with a store called 'Range'... the nearest to me is at King's Lynn in Norfolk....can't say I'd ever taken much notice of it before..I think it's some kind of discounter maybe..but they have a huge range of home, kitchen and garden products and their small garden centre out the back is actually quite impressive.... the plants are all named varieties.... not simply Azalea - Red...   and a surprisingly large choice...things like Acer's, Buddleia's,.. some perennials and various shrubs and climbers...  smallish plants to grow on...

...if there is one anywhere in your vicinity, I do recommend giving it a try if you haven't already done so.... it's new to me...

...I like the look of some of those books that made it to the final... would make a nice gift for someone..

...I shall now look up 'anxious gardener' on Facebook, see if I like what he does or not... thanks little-ann for that...

...and I wonder who the ex of Hostafan would be....I do like a bit of gossip...lol...

...I see Daniel Haynes was a finalist in the Digital Media Awards section, won by Graham Rice... I often read his blogs...

..actually, they were in different groups within that section, I should add... Mr Haynes in the web site awards...

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

^that doesn't sound a pleasant job...lol...

Beau's Mum,

..yes, thank you for asking...in the end I really couldn't get that arch in, no matter which way I measured, so I bought two nice big obelisks instead from that company, and I must recommend them as I ordered on Tuesday evening and they arrived Thursday morning, and no delivery charges... very well packed too..

...I had seen the same obelisks in a garden centre at £12 more each... so I got quite a saving online there...

...I'm just waiting for my Austin roses before I set them up...

kind regards,
