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....

Eek,  no porridge!  Oh poor Chicky!  We're big porridge eaters.  My little one loved it when he was 2.  He role played making it and selling it at nursery, drew pictures of it, ate it for supper as well as breakfast.  Once I offered him chocolate to avoid having to make it  (tired mum!) which he wolfed down and then requested porridge again.

Morning everyone else! I'm only vaguely keeping up  -best wishes to all with illness and aches and pains and dealing with ignorant people. 

My baby has gone back to nighttime sleeping again so im feeling more human.  Elder child has recovered from sickness and is back to school.  Looking after just one baby is like a holiday ! (Didn't feel like that first time around!) Hoping I can bagsie the car today and have a trip to garden centre for cake.  What a life!

Byeeeeeeeeee Doveeeeeeeeeeeee

Cercidiphyllum japonicum, - can it be hard pruned?

Posted: 16/09/2015 at 20:58

I've not tested it but I've got rhododendrons and pieris.  Although it can't be that acidic as ive got hebes too.  The spot I've got in mind is replacing an azaelea and spirea. A longer term plan though, Dove - you've seen how much work my garden needs and how little time I've got.  Can't stop dreaming and designing though!

Grrr Verdun!  "What rain?" indeed!!

Verdun, did you once tell me to plant echinacea in the spring rather than autumn?

Strange crinodendron friut?
