Ideas for a burial plot

Posted: 29/03/2015 at 19:11

Hi Marben

What a special place for your plants.  I do hope that there is comfort in working towards the planting that you want. 

You could try some Alyssum. I found some in my border for the first time this year and it was an absolute joy. Beautiful little clusters of white flowers that just out-bloomed everything else. It seemed to glow with light in the evening. I didn't know what it was so after posting a picture on here, helpful folk identified it for me. i was warned that it can spread, but personally I hope it does as its so pretty. It hasn't disappeared either and at the moment it's a tidy little round ball of green.  It would compliment most things I think.

Hoping you find the plants thst are right for you and your daughter.

Sorry to hear that Graham. It's been a nasty old day weather wise. Hope you manage to salvage some of your plants.

I'd love to have seen that Topbird!

Ive got a tiny cutting in a pot outside and my cat goes straight to it for a good sniff and five minutes of madness!

Anyone done any gardening today?

Oooo Fruitcake, Chickens!! What are they like? How long have you had them? Are they easy to keep?

I'd love an allotment. I have images of a cosy shed, and a kettle.....and cake!?!
