Been lucky with my golden lab...Spke. He's now 10 but always he kept to paths, always does his business ."up the top" and never does any damage. The most gentle peaceable dog in the world. Mind you he does pinch my runner beans...when I'm picking on one side he's "picking" on the other. Gotta laugh.

Purples in my garden but what colour for you?

A ombination I loved last year was blue linum with yellow osteospermum. They flowered in tandem for whole of the summer in front of purple dwarf berberis and all are still in place for this year but I have got more to plant out. What better for hot dry spot?

Hello Yvonne got bit of a bug......don't worry I'll prob survive, I expect.
However I desperately want to get out there. I think the weekend will be good so you will be able to sit outside in the sunshine. Whats going in those pots?
Fairy girl yes next week will indeed be scorchio. If not you can blame Brum. Ha ha

Minimum planter size for black bamboo

Hiya katieC
I planted a black bamboo for a friend. I chose much bigger than the one you have chosen because it is a vigorous plant. They are greedy and thirsty too.
It will grow in your container but bigger the better for me.

Oh I have to have a lawn. A place to sit, recline etc, that green award and the fantastic smell when the grass is cut.
Red dahlia make your border as wide as you can. ,plants just don't look right and dont grow as well,in very narrow borders. And you can plant deeper and associate colours and shapes better
The dog no doubt loves "his" lawn as does mine
