How do you all know so much

Posted: 17/04/2014 at 13:14

Yes, it's amazing how much can learn.  I've been around about a year or so and have definitely come on  - I find that I can now identify many of the plants people post, I have an opinion when people ask for advice, and when I was given a new gardening book last week I found myself tut-tutting and diasgreeing with some advice in it!

My friends and family dont seem to have quite so much faith in my ability though.  On multiple occasions it's been pointed out what magically has appeared in the garden / alongside my house's roadside, only for me to point out that I would know about it already, given I planted it....

I'm getting a greenhouse soon (on order - sooo excitied) so hoping to do more seed growing and propagation, and proper veg garden.  So expecting to learn much much more over next few years. 

Also, I read that microbes in the soil improve brain function and mood - so the feel good factor from gardening is scientifically proven. Good enough reason for me...

HELP! Rapidly growing plant / weed ??

Too cold for jasmine?

It's the star ones I'm tempted by. Sounds like there might be one suitable then.  

What online nurseries do people use?  I'm currently using crocus.

Too cold for jasmine?

Posted: 14/04/2014 at 20:56


new pergola noes erected. I'd like to grow Jasmine climbing up one of the posts but concerned that plant details seem to say not completely hardy and advise growing against wall.  

So wondering if I should stick to a rose/honeysuckle/clematis combo on the pergola and leave the jasmine on the short list for the wall space.

I'm norfolk so we do get cold here.  Although not much rain.

Ta, Noodle

Installed bird feeders yesterday.   No takers as yet. Think they look rather nice! (poppy  shaped bowls on sticks) Suspect will be posting a thread later this year on how to get rid of the weeds under....

here birdy birdy....aphid with sunflower seeds on the side.... Fat and mealworms for birdy birdy...

Sprayed with washing up liquid each day. There's less but still there.  Just found a ladybird in my son's potty (???!!!!!!) so have moved her onto the worst infested rose.
