Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes 

Planting suggestions for new path?

Posted: 19/01/2014 at 19:59

Santolina would look good.....lovely silver grey aromatic mounds.  Aster frikarii monch for comtrast or nepeta six hills giant.  Some purple shrubs like pittosporum Tom Thumb, Berberis atro nana, prunus cistena crimson dwarf.  A couple of,choisyas for their scent too

Shady space question

Tracey, it depends on how much light you get there.

Lettuce and rhubarb spring to mind.  For rhubarb though you need to get plenty of compost, manure, etc into the soil.  

 

choice of secateurs

Hiya artychris

Well I get cheapos now....£5 maybe.  I am so heavy handed, so stubborn (I use them to cut wire amd too thick branches) and so absent minded (I am always losing them) that when I did use expensive ones it was a costly loss.  Secateurs from GC are often offered at half price but DIY stores sell them cheaply too.  They work just fine.

I would love to own a pair of decent felcos though 

What's your day been like?

Hiya lily

The Towans approaches gwithian beach. Can walk on Towans or bit more to go onto the beach itself.  Just  returned from a Towans walk.  Right now tis sunny and warmish.  

Hey KEF lots of flowers ....agree that more and more are showing day by day   You mentioned myosotis.....forget their common name, hee hee hee....I think there are non seeding varieties now.  I would grow them if so.  

Quick consideration today of changing one of my side borders.  It's good time of year for ideas I think

 

 

 

Am I a sillee billee?

Got plants galore in GH, in polytunel, under fleece, in conservatory and in pots outside.   

Im still buying more....got 4 plants coming on Tuesday and a few more heleniums in the spring.  

So......am I a silly billy?    I'm sure they will all be accommodated.....well, maybe not!  Besides, there is a small queue of vultures here ready to pick my stock. 

Any more sillee billees out there?  

HELLO FORKERS!

Me please woody.  Had my lunch but always got room for extras 

Weird weather indeed.  Womderful morning then it poured down from nowhere for 15 mins or so and now it's beautiful again.  We are pretty well sodden down here....luckily my soil drains well so when....if...we get a couple of dry days I can get on it.  Some roads are dangerous because of ice!
