Does anyone talk to their plants?

Posted: 11/03/2014 at 18:43

I do sit down sometimes with my plants and discuss politics. 

An ENVY thread....

Gardenjeannie, you drive a hard bargain......but yes yorkie puds added to pork cracling will buy my total affection 

I would urge anyone to look at linum perenne, the blue flax, and not admire its true blueness   

This morning the scent from daff cheerfulness.....I have quite a few of them....is amazing.

Stacey, I haven't really checked closely my echinaceas but I'm aware of one shooting. still but early for many things.

Looking bright and sunny morning.  Will get some more pruning done before foodbank calls 

garden centres vs garden nursery's

Nothing quite like a stroll around a nursery.  Several where I live snd always a gem or two or three to fascinate on.  Garden centres supply the usual ordinary everyday stuff we need but don't get excited about

Hiya thomas

I did just this couple of years ago.  Had two pools and kept one of them.....had grand ideas to link them via a small "stream". 

I used a mixture of garden compost, stacked lawn turves, garden soil, dried cow manure and other bought composts. It has produced a very rich soil.....added organic fertilizer too.....that has successfully become an attractive herbaceous border.  

I used good quantities of soil from my veg patch too.......replacing with mushroom compost......

Blue can look subtle too.  Classy colour ....if true blue.

MrsGarden, 

I agree  with chicky those arches to look a little fragile.  I made mine to be permanent, rock solid and able to,withstand a heavy weight.  

Can you get someone to make what you want?   Using good solid timber or galvanised steel?  

Since joining GW forum,I have been overwhelmed with all the support & advise
