Anyone done any gardening today?

gotta have a veg patch gg.   Nothing like fresh organic food from your own garden and it needn't take too much time or effort 

Can I chop it (just a bit)?

Berkely, this is the best time to prune acers.....well, it's when I choose to do it.

reduce the height now.  in spring you can carefully trim off any dieback

Way, way, way off subject. 

general statements are exactly that....they are NOT PERSONAL.  Why, oh why do people do that.......? 

my simple point was/is that ...religion often does not make for better people.  It often makes them self righteous; it can make them fanatics. Of course, it can make some better but, in my experience, that is the exception rather than the rule.

(you only have to read this thread to see, feel and sense the offence being taken ...sadly

Bulbs growing too early?

Posted: 11/12/2015 at 12:05

Clare, If your lilies are in pots then,,yes, you can repot now. will not harm them at all.  If they have been outside all summer you can keep them there over winter.  I would simply repot and cover with fleece

I have planted lilies out in fhe garden and have planted some in pots...30 or more..  To deter mice, etc., and to mitigate winter conditions fleece is my usual regime for pots of bulbs 


Which tree?

Steven, please tell us the size of your garden.  a photo would help too. 

You say "tree"........a tree may well be way out of scale for your garden.  Whatever you plant there needs to look good all year round by the sound of it so a medium size shrub or conifer like a yew.  holly, a favourite of mine, usually is prickly, drops leaves all year round and will need regular trimming so would not plant one if garden is as small as it sounds.

always better in the ground than in a pot if you can
