OMG - i love the blue on the fence panels - what is it? If it was me - id paint all of it blue - guess that tells you its your choice and our tastes are different - me id be loud and proud and do what I was comfortable with that made me smile but as the other replies indicate its not to everyones taste 😁

Things that make me squirm

1. Slugs of any size

2. People that hawk and then spit on the pavement

3. Seafood and fish to eat in general

4. Wasps

Is it bad to move plants to a different place?

My rosemary grows quite happily between a Pieris and Common Lilac - definately not 2 feet between shrubs - Lavender - I grow in containers and move them about with no obvious side effects - thay said I havent grown it in a boarder so hopefully someone more knowledgable than me can steer you in the right direction 😁

They can appear tall compared to the foliage - I tend to leave the flowers until they fade as the bees love them ! That said a friend of mine chops the flowers off as they enjoy the formation of the leaves. Matter of taste I guess 😁

Jet washing

Hi all

Gardening is not just about growing things I have come to realise - I have unearthed a great crop of Kestrel potatoes, the Nastursiums have gone crazy yet my decking and slabs look dirty!

I know its a fine sunny day - hurrah - lets get the jet washer out ....... 6 hours later - can someone jetwash me please? My son very helpfully said after 5 hours "why didnt you put your wellies on Mum?" In my infinate wisdom I thought flip flops would be fine! Hence to say Im still a newbie at this gardening malarky!
