Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 22/02/2015 at 10:15

Planning on potting up two fruit trees ( a cherry and a plum ) which my dad purchased from Aldi for me.  might nip to the garden centre to buy a couple of big pots for them. Also going to nip to the lovely house that gives away free horse manure from the roadside for my new raised beds....all after a cup of coffee though!

No slopes sadly at grantham. There is a tiny margin of mud, but underneath its rubble. i really really do love what you've done. Credit to you. 

ive done a tiny bit of gorilla gardening close to my house. Planted raspberry canes, rhubarb and a gooseberry plant. All thriving but could do with a good weeding.

I think my mum and her pal used to grow and propogate these with great success. I'll ask and get back to you.

How lovely! I wish something could be done at Grantham Station but sadly it's mainly concrete...and grumpy East Coast staff!

Glad your cat is ok. I'm no expert, but a few suggestions on here in the past have been quite alarming and I've often thought about whether folk actually think about the potential wider implications to wildlife.

Just a thought JBR, but some silly people put all sorts of things in gardens to deter cats without even thinking about the wider implications. I hope none of your neighbours have done so.  Hope you get to the bottom of it If it happens again, and I hope your kitty is ok too.

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!
