Idea's please on my little plot

My front garden sounds a bit like yours, north facing. In it I have hosta's, dwarf conifers and geraniums, also an azalea where the most sun is caught. I also have bark chip to keep the weeds down.

I tried writing one myself, but ran out of steam and haven't written anything for ages.

I use to take a picture of my garden on the first of the month and hoped to build up a picture of how the garden changes throughout the year, but like I said, I'm not very good at keeping a diary and it all faded out.

..but I know I should start it again, it is fun, even if I'm the only one really reading my own blog.

Talkback: Using green tomatoes

I'm glad that it isn't just me then. I've loads of unripened tomatoes and couldn't work out why. Going to make green tomato chutney this afternoon. Never heard of this before, till trying to find out what to do with all my green tomatoes.

Geraniums

Hello

I'm just in the process of taking apart my hanging baskets. I think I can salvage the trailing ivy, but what about the geraniums? Is it worh potting them up and keeping them over the winter? Will they bloom again next year?

Where to keep, inside or an unheated greenhouse?

Thanks in advance, Tina

Tatton park any good

I've been to Tatton Park Flower show a few times and it's very big, loads of show gardens, floral displays, plant marquees and loads to buy (plants and other garden features).

Manchester airport isn't far away and you'll see all the planes and different airlines taking off, thought I'd mention if there's anyone onto that.

As long as the weather is good, you'll have a great day
