I would keep it simple, fragrant and attractive.
fill it with lavendar
a small tree like Prunus Cistena Crimson Dwarf would star in the corner......red leaves from spring to autumn and delightful pink/white flowers that will not smother anything as they fall.
Yesterday I received dire warnings about what would happen if I go ahead and cancel my roadside assistance with them.
heck! My world will fall apart. The special benefits I already have will be lost and the letter was even signed by the bossman himself.
Hey! wait a mo! I can go elsewhere. I can save money too and still be safe on the road. So it's not all doom and gloom after all
ring any bells folks?
Lin, you need to bruise the foliage before applying glyphosate. The waxy foliage of ivy will prevent absorption of the chemical. bruising breaks up those leaves.
a better way to eradicate large clumps of ivy is to sever the thick stems as close as possible to the base then apply SBK brushwood killer to the cuts.
Separate the stems and pot them up with their linked tubers. keep compost dry for a few more weeks until shoots are seen then lightly start watering. The bigger the tuber the bigger and better the flowers will be in summer
Dichondra is another summer tender plant. it will not survive winter.
For me it is the chance of a lifetime. If we don't get out now we never will. We will thrive outside...we will not be on our own, whatever that means. Europe wants our money...how many know an increase in our payment has already been agreed but kept quiet until after the referendum?
We are doomed then pansy....doomed I tell you
Ha ha Spud....just started a thread about this
In response to a query from Spud, try astilbes on your heavy clay soil. Astrantias too. Japanese painted ferns. Acteas/cimicifugas too. Grasses like hackonechloa and various sedges would enjoy it there .
Nice one David
