Good luck at the dentist LesleyK!!

I haven't needed anything doing for 26yrs

Morning all...

Refreshed from my weekend shifts, my sales are up for the sixth week in a row but it does require that I skip my breaks to get time to fit everything in and tends to be double tiring as a result.

Light garden duties today, only have a few plants left to get in the ground and a tiny bit of rejigging (one of my recent plantings doesn't work in its current location), the day in turning into a lovely one already, garden got watered over the weekend but nothing substantial.

Have a good Monday everyone

P.S Glad to read that Shadow is recovering nicely

Great photo Berghill 

Re Clematis, the pink one is Markham's Pink Alpina, the purple one is koreana Brunette and the creamy white is avalanche

All need to establish more but hints at future years

Hi everyone 

Hoping Shadow is feeling better very soon, Flynn has been unwell today himself, nothing as serious just that beef is definitely off the menu 

Did manage some gardening this afternoon, glorious sunshine again but felt really achy and energy levels were low. OH moaned at me but I really wanted to get some of my plants in the ground, no rain yet

Week off gardening next week for some serious DIY 

Have a great weekend guys 


Anyone done any gardening today?

Into the garden late today but managed to pot up my big iris in terracotta pot and plant up the last border gap in a tranquil part of the garden, mulched mulched mulched, hopefully the mix of purple and white should be harmonious

Really tired today but OH tells me I've done too much again

Dianthus dying over winter? Please help :)

Posted: 24/04/2015 at 17:44

MY Dianthus are one type, spread across a large-ish area at front of free draining border

half is sheltered by an old gate and they were twice the size of the other half in mid-winter

Now they are faster along than the others that are just starting to put on growth

Verdun's suggestions are best, two year old cuttings will sustain the best summer flowering
