Or at least get them in pots.  Daffodils benefit from deep plantIng too.

Talkback: Give borders an autumn boost

Yes lovely shrubs.  Had Griffithi once.......richer flowers and evergreen.  Get a red dahlia behind it, a red echinacea or a coreopsis....yellow or red.....alongside it.  Or hackonochloa in front.......

Right now willmottianum is strutting it's stuff beautifully.  It is good in a pot as said but in the ground it makes a far bigger impact.

Grow many, many blue flowered plants....right now caryopteris in several varieties, campanulas, agastaches, verbena rigida, salvias in variety, linum perenne, and blue penstemon still in flower.  Did I say I like blue?

Ha ha Brum. 

Makes food sense that punkdoc 

Stacey, I only have 3 wild swans.  They are lookiNg sooooooooo good.  Sorreeeee!  I would suggest though that when you do get one you buy plants not plugs.  Also to decide beforehand where you want it to be......dappled shade is ideal but sun is ok if good soil.  Bit moisture in humous rich soil and it should look good.  Looks best "nestling", I.e. besides things like geum Totally Tamgerine with its large leaves, red,Heucheras like berry Smoothy, etc that make it look "comfy" ! 

Star gaze lily, as I said to Stacey, buy plants not plugs.  Locally burncoose nursery supplies large plants and they do mail order.  When the flowers move....breeze etc...the white flowers reveal their blue shading on their backs and this is lovely to see. Worth getting

sunny here ...lovely  But have to go soon.  Love to be in the garden

Hydranga problem

Posted: 16/10/2013 at 08:51

I thought of moisture too.  It may be a bit too dry there esp this summer.  A good watering, a feed and thick mulch should make a difference.  

Yellow leaves doesn't mean iron, etc deficiency.  Check out the symptoms online for yourself.  Out of curiosity, what colour flowers does your hydrangea produce?  

Front hedge needs cutting problem with neabor

Posted: 16/10/2013 at 08:44

Joyce. Why not let your hedge grow bit taller to match?  

Sometimes it's best not to worry too much about how you think it looks if you really can't control the situation.  Live and let live?

Poached this morning!

Porridge for me....no sugar, cream and milk and cherries this morning.  Then a 10 miles run on the Towans.......oops!  Better not fib.......

Remember my old dad's wise words....breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  He always seemed to be eatIng tripe, pigs' trotters, brawn and cockles amd mussels.
