Rosmary bush

Morning sybille

I think it's come to its end.  They usually aren't very long lived at the best of times but cutting off that old branch was the final straw.  

There won't be any cutting material so I would dig it up ASAP.  Dont  plant another rosemary there though

Morning folks.  Beautifully sunny 

Fidget, my,witch hazel is in full flower too.  Lovely scent,.  Hope you catch up,on your sleep...sure you will.

Re my witch hazel I put a blue shirt on the line to dry but made sure I could see the yellow flowers contrasting  with it    Clever eh?

As far as I know no Camelias have a scent.  They have everything else though.  

Great pictures again folks 

 

Raised beds

Not for me.  I would cover with polythene now.  It will enable the soil to dry out and enable ??ou to mix in compost, etc..  I would then, when mixed, uncover the beds for a couple of months.  Come pre-sowing time, if comditions are wet and cold, I would again cover with polythene.

Red, I LOVE it's scent.

I remember my nephew as a boy passing sarcoccoca and askiNg what that lovely smell was.  It is worthwhile. It will not give you any problems.  It IS deliciously scented.

Your site sounds ideal for it.  

But, check its details out  for yourself Red and then decide.

Red, check out a thread posted by one of our most handsome members about small online nurseries.   I agree postage costs are increasing but I recently had 7 small plants for £15 plus £8  postage.  They were not plugs but plants busting to be potted on into 1 litre pots.  They were plants I could not get locally too.  

I will be going to local GC for their small perennials over the next month.  They will be priced at about £2 ...maybe less if you buy 6.....and they really will bulk up quickly if you pot on.  

Im always looking for value for money but quality and variety too.
