Potted plants for winter?

Posted: 26/08/2014 at 14:19

Over the weekend I bought pieris Flaming Silver amd a beautiful glazed pot as a gift for someone.  The plant has green and white leaves, brilliant red new growth and white flowers.   Luckily ...out of season.....it has its flowers opening now along with red leaves.  It will provide interest all year round.  (acid compost, of course) 

Identify please.

Saponaria grows wild on the Towans behind me leading to the beach.  Lovely in the wild but wouldn't want it in my garden

Growing vegetables in the driveway with cars

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 12:39

No, not for me.  The idea of growing our own veg is for it to be as healthy and chemical free as possible.

The concept of car exhausts.....fumes will remain in the veg .....and edible crops sounds bad 

runner beans, healthy plants, few beans!

Still sounds like underwatering . ,,a good drenching is better than daily waterings.  Spraying helps beans to set too.

Hope you don't get,the big Busy.  

And you get your shower crisis sorted ASAP Dove.  ,.....always something out of the blue isn't there?  

Signs of rain easing and brighter weather .......spike desperately waiting for his walk but I would  rather go when it's a little drier 

Everything in  the garden seems to be standing up well to the heavy rain and wind.......

My mum currently in hospital ....unsure if another infection or deterioration in her thinking.  Bit deflating as she was linking me to my dad's behaviour years back.  An "unreal" situation ......one that many here seem to understand.  Will be seeing her later.  Not sure what to expect really 

Hope everyone has good day

Pouring down with rain here.....not pleasant.  Typical bank holiday I guess.
