Problem Weed

I thought the definition of a weed was," a plant growning in the wrong place." 

Problem Weed

Hello, I have that regularly growing in my garden too. Don't know it's name. I don't think there is a long term solution, except to pull it up or hoe over every time that you see it growing. 

My neighbour has a bit of an unkempt garden and the wild seeds probably just fly over the fence all the time and land in my nice soil

Robin watch

Posted: 12/10/2013 at 19:59

True, the average lifespan for a robin is 1.1 years, with only 1 in 4 surviving to their first birthday (there is a very high mortality rate), but for those who do they can life longer (maybe 5 or 6 years).

Went to a National Trust property over the summer and they were ringing wild birds, the oldest recorded Robin that they had, on the estate, I think was 9 years old.

So you might have a special robin star gaze lily 

Pot Tidying

Yep, I keep my pots tidy too. All gets a bit untidy during spring and summer, but then organise myself in autumn to get ready for spring.

Bougainvillea

Does anyone know how best to over winter a bougainvillea?

I don't have a conservatory, but wondering if it will be okay to winter up in the garage? The garage has a little window, so it would get some light. And the garage doesn't freeze, but it might drop below the 10*C (that bougainvilleas like to stay above). I just know if I leave it outside or in the greenhouse it will die, gets very cold here in the North East of England.

And I just don't think the central heating would do it any good either, any advice?

Thanks for reading, Tina

Something which looks nice in November

I had a look at another website for what looks good in November, quite a selection

I'm sure whatever you choose will look great.
