Beautiful shade of pink. Are you in the south kels? I'm in the Midlands and my camelia has some lovely fat buds coming along but they are tightly shut and have a way to go yet.

cant wait for the muscari to come out. My favourites!

deliberate or not

I'm with Dove. Id fence it and have a go at some nice climbers to grow up the panels.  Sorry for you Annette though as having a horror as a neighbour is not pleasant. Hope it doesn't get you down. 

whats gone wrong??????????

Looks good to me. It'll spring into life later on. Cut off any dead bits like Dave and Mollis say, and also cu off any stem that has gone pappy or wrotten. 

On a cheery note!

What brilliant photos. I wish I had an eye for it.

Anyone done any gardening today?

As soon as you said Tyne and Wear Victoria Sponge my brain read the rest of your post with an accent! My mums side is from Hartlepool and I love their accent. We make my Grandma say certain words just to hear it at its best. The Nottingham accent doesn't sound nearly as soothing!  

Glad to hear your fence is mended. 

 

Great Way of Making Some Money Out of this Hobby?

Great idea Paul. Good on your mum too. I love the idea of an honesty box. I always go out of my way to buy from houses selling from the garden gate.

Compost bin....again

 Hi Sammy, I have one of the beehive ones. It looks really nice, but I haven't had much success with it on the compost front. However, i think this is due to the fact that it doesn't get much sun in the position it's in, rather than there being anything wrong with the design. I like the ease of the lid on it. I thought about painting it, but once you start that it'd probably need doing every year or so to keep it looking nice. No regrets with it.

I've often wondered if those nematodes work. Prefer the idea of a beer trap though!

Pricey blooms on St Valentine's day

Happy St Valentine's Day folks.

Walking through Victoris Station to see the flower stall selling red tulips for £9.50 for 3! Blooms that is, not bunches!

Some lovely happy faces on the journey home of ladies and gents carrying bouquets. 

Love is in the air! 

Can you compost ferns?

Posted: 12/02/2015 at 20:41

It's either ferns or firs, but one of them is good for acid loving plants. If you cut it up small and sprinkle it around the base it might do them some good. I'm sure someoneon here will know.
