Garden Pictures 2015

compared to the classy pictures above I hesitate to show this one.  A gallardia.  Not really my cup of tea...too in your face and loud.  Cannot decide if I should keep it or dig it up.  Hopefully the phormium gives it a semblance of dignity...???????

some like it there.  A blue (microphylla) salvia next to it will...should...put it in its place in a couple of weeks though

Difficult position forget me not.

When he starts spraying could you ask him what he is using? Also to say what happened to your plants and your suspicions. Get it over and done with. To simply resort to spraying everything is plain daft too. The natural world is not that clinical.
You cant approach him by saying what you,think you overheard, can you?
Its about being tactful...fancy me saying that! ......
At least your neighbour will be more aware in the future.

Always cut out flower spikes Lulu. It increases the chances of re flowering.
You dont say what variety of kniphofia you have but with those I have...dwarf....the advice is to remove spikes to encourage further flowers. It seems to work well for me with more spikes on their way

Can you post a picture Lickle Den? Perhaps instead of grass you could lay gravel or plant the area with plants that can cope with that situation?
