Probably a stupid question, but if I`ve put slow release fertilizers in my baskets do I still need to liquid feed them?

Kids,dogs and gardens

I have 3 dogs, one of which is a entire male so pee`s up everything the other likes to eat things I also have 4 children who like to tear round the garden with footballs etc. I have given up planting in the main part of the garden except for hanging baskets. I have another part of the garden that is fenced off and NO ONE is allowed in there!!!!

What have you learnt this year in the garden?

Posted: 12/06/2014 at 05:46

I have learned that I`m not very patient, want everything to be up and flowering now!

I really need to be more organised, something my hubby is always pointing out to me.

That I will never win the war on slugs in my garden, so next year (see being organised) I shall be planting plants they wont eat!

I must`nt dwell on my faliures (which are many) in the garden.

Overgrown cottage garden needs taming

I think its a case of cant see the wood for the trees at the moment, the garden does look stunning but I think a good prune and tidy up for now the in the autumn when things die back you may find a spot that will suit a lawned area.

I think the lack of sun has a lot to do with things. A lot of my stuff hasn't grown much, and ive sowed two lots of seeds in the last couple of months and they both failed to germimate.

I have a large magnolia tree in my front garden which my kiddies like to climb up, I don`t mind so long as they don`t break any branches off which they know not to. Anyhow I was chatting to my mum outside (she lives two doors down) and said kiddies were in tree, when they both come running over shouting and waving a small branch that they`d broke off . " mum mum, someones been climbing your tree and spat in it" they shouted innocently. When I looked at the branch it was covered in cuckoo spit!!! bless them they actually thought someone had been spitting in my tree. I did laugh
