Mail Order Plants - Where from?

Posted: 11/03/2015 at 12:41

Blairs, I know.   no, I don't  thnk I would use council recycled compost myself again but it is available cheaply.  Bought a lorry load once and it wasn't great stuff and I share your concerns over its quality.  I am aware of importing rubbish and possibly perennial weed problems.  You are right to take me to task there 

enjoy plant ordering TurnipFarmer 

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Not much sun here but a beautiful mild morning....some rain starting now but we are promised sunshine later

I have a sizeable blue juniper that I trim every year to maintain its dense conical shape.  Feel like a sculptor . Very satisfying when done.....this morning.  I divide,or remove old leaves on, phormiums annually too to maintain juvenile colourful compact leaves and did this too.  Garden now getting "tidied" and cleared to display new fresh growth....again, very satisfying 

hoped to cut grass again but rain has stopped play.  

Wintersong if you're checking out ferns the Japanese painted ferns are really quite beautiful

 

Holly ID please

just checked.  It's a handsome holly that I keep trimmed.  Will post a picture when it's neighbouring Cotinus royal Purple opens its leaves 

Holly ID please

Morning folks......cloudy but mild.   I'm sure plant's have grown overnight.  Rain soon though.  Shame I wanted to start preparations in veg patch for seed sowing.  Love it when bare soil is levelled and raked ......so much promise and confirmation that winter has passed.

ive decided to sow my veg seed Friday week at about 9 am 

hope you pass vets mot Gardeners Boy........

Take my dog in a mo whilst it's still dry.....may venture to the beach 

perennials

Thanks Dave.  However, mine were in dry, poor soil ....and it bakes there.  Thought I covered growing conditions perfectly but obviously not.  The water and better soil notion was simply to experiment a little.  It's a challenge for me to grow them if I can. 

Wimtersong,, not slugs either for me.  mine  were bought as pot grown and should really have thrived.  Prob I was a little impatient .......

Supprot for Solanum glasnevin?

Posted: 10/03/2015 at 23:47

My solanum album is supported by galvanised wires attached to a wall.  It is vigorous but I prune it at least half baxk every year., it is a weighty subject so a strong support needed
