Design ideas for a very small garden

Posted: 10/10/2013 at 13:44

What type,of tree is it?  Can it be removed?  Don't do's usually horrible, slippery and dead. Use the money for a nice swing and slide 

Such a small garden needs to be simple too....just a couple of nice evergreens as structure, I think.

Think it best to buy perennials you really want rather than a hotchpotch of the supplier's choice

Taking the plunge

Blimey that's a lotta bulbs AJK. 

Yes, you could  make some cash in the spring.  Good idea.  The polyanthus you referred to in another thread would sell well too if you pot up into 9 cm pots

You can divide small,clumps too, of course, AJK.  Very small pieces can be replanted or,potted up.  Yes, seeds too.  I would sow in early spring

Bit cheesy Stacey!  

Is it time....unification of evening and morning FORKERS?

Posted: 10/10/2013 at 13:02

Since we are all overlapping now and posting on both evening and morning FORKERS.....I do it too it now time to unite the FORKERS?  (glad there is a spellchecker there )  Maybe keep the FORKERS bit, say "hello FORKERS" .  It would still respect Brumbull's place as the originator.  So, what do you guys think?  Shall we have a yes, no response and nominate a proposer?   I nominate Dove as she slipped me a fiver earlier 

Good Evening FORKERS

Nice and sunny now.  Quite warm.  Clearing the veg patch of weeds. 

I do the pen n paper thing too punkdoc....leave little notes about moving something, about swapping plants over, etc.

Hmmm.  I grow mine on in veg patch where they do add a lot of growth in short time.  They then are moved into the garden at any  time over the next few weeks with good chunk of soil so they  do not know they have been moved.

Because mine get quite large they are not then planted in groups...they hold their own as specimen plants....prob 2 to 3 feet high  and across.  So in that sense they are good value.  I paid about £3 for 10 too.  However. I have also bought some as named colours and these are planted in groups of 3......have orange, yellow and make a real impact.  All are pinched out to prevent flowering and to increase bushyness.
