Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

popped on a separate thread some photos which took me an age to grab from rightmove, hopefully some of you all can offer advice and suggestions on what would work where. It's still a small suburban garden, but so much bigger than the little patio bit we have now if anyone remembers what my patch looks like

I'll be happier when the agency has gotten back in touch to assure us references are fine and arranged a concrete move in date. Then we get to go back and measure up! Plan where everything can go.

New garden new start... Fingers crossed

This should be our new garden this time next month, 

It's small, but it's at least three times bigger than we have at the moment, and most importantly private. I think it has potential to be quite the haven!



 Seems silly to be so excited about something so ordinary, but it's the best either of us have had in a long time!

Pink tools

I suggest getting a small trug, train yourself to always pop your hand tools back in the trug and you won't lose them in amongst the grass and shrubbery! Which reminds me, I left mine in the flower bed bravely or stupidly transporting a hidden carnation to a sparse bit of bedding.

Weeds aplenty, only seems to be the one, a small little thing that grows faster than anything I've seen and has teeny tiny orange flowers... I hate it with a passion. Leave it for a week and it's an entire carpet.

got lots of SPs from the GC on clearance, more than I can hope to grow next year! There's just something so special about them. I want a fragranced bit at the back with some fragrant honeysuckle, so thats next on my list! Along with a rose, but I might wait until we own for an expensive fragranced one. I don't want to be in the same situation and leave it behind for fear of upsetting it. I don't have a good track record with cuttings!

In a bush I have a rather lovely dog rose climbing it's way through it, it's since finishe flowering and has started dropping rose hips all over the ground. Are these suitable to collect seed from or will I need to try and take a cutting as I'd like to take it with us when we move... I have precisely no experience with roses!

the rose hips that have fallen to the ground aren't dried out, they're still squishy, but there's still plenty on the bush!

Homegrown Wedding Flowers

I was going to say sweet peas too. I like the delicate nature of willowy sweet peas and sweet williams, but I'm old fashioned! SW kaleidoscope would look lovely in a display I think.

Plant with pretty pink flowers

i've some bulbs that were labeled anemome just from wilkos last year, lots of colours, they have thrived and blooming lots, will they behave in the same way if separating? Also after they've finished flowering the flower head goes all fluffy like cotton wool... Normal?
