Lavender (soil depth)

Posted: 06/03/2015 at 17:38

You will need 60 cm I reckon but how deep is your soil there?  Can you make a raised bed there?  Maybe a row of blocks or sleepers to raise soil level?  

Slug..... Or is it ?

Greedy Punkdoc?  Just gave in to temptation and purchased a couple of cream donuts.  Not for me though....just in case A visitor feels peckish

temperature here is around 15 degrees. planted out some violas....had a voucher but gc overcharged me.  They were on offer but the system said no.  Anyway got my offer.

Delightful day....pretty warm.  

got roped into helping my neighbour with his fence and a caller stayed a long time so my planned work in garden hasnt yet happened.  

Had lunch but donuts are calling me..........especially those cream and jam ones.  My local shop supplies extra large ones but it would be piggish of me to eat two of those .....surely? 

It's my birthday

Dahlia pot size

Watery, a 9 cm pot should be sufficient for tubers from Wilkos.  If not a 12 cm.  pot up in dry compost for now and lightly water in a week,or so.  Pot on frequently as roots fill their pots ...and they will grow fast now.  One tuber per pot.

i grow dahlias by reporting often and have several in large ....5 litre or larger.....pots.  They will grow and flower well if well fed during the summer, esp if john Innes used. I also grow them on in pots ...for reason you give...until I know exactly where I want them in the garden.

Help rejuvenating a water lily.

Every 3 years or so....according to my whim really ....I lift and divide water lilies.  They separate easily.

hiwever, they need to be replanted less deeply until leaves start to float again and then you can lower into the pond.

this is ideal time to divide but would not leave it much later.

Anyone done any gardening today?
