Morning all. Site did that to me yesterday, Pat - saying that there was a reply but it not showing up when clicked on the thread.

Verbena bonanseris cuttings - can they go out into the border?

Posted: 19/09/2015 at 07:03

It's just that particularly area thats more damp than the rest of the garden, Dorcas. dont really want to dry it much as it's nice to have a different environment.  Verbena bon. would look good with whats there though. As they are such seeders maybe I'll try just throwing a packet over each year!

Good point, fidget.  I should see how plants do before buying more. Ho hum. Pennies staying in pocket.

Ooh Runnybeak ......and that's all I've got to say about that.

Verdun, you spoil my fun!  I thought that was a great excuse - "Monty says..."

(Thanks for the advice though.)

Weed membrane good or bad?

Glad you've said that Fairy. Thought it was just me!

Weed membrane good or bad?

Posted: 17/09/2015 at 21:18

I don't really understand membrane - you need to put a deep amount of gravel in order  it not to lift up and show, but if you use that much gravel you don't need a membrane.

My neighbour and I both coincidentally redid a gravel area at the same time last month.  I didn't use membrane, they did.  

Their membrane is showing, I have weeds.

My mum did that once - ordered several kilos of bananas by mistake.  We had banana everything for a few weeks.

This was my afternoon treat....
