Deano, your veg area is really delightful and I can see how much work you've put into its design, build and tending. My veg plot is not even half as nice

Gardenfantic, every year get's better at your place  I can see how its maturing and how on earth do you keep those lawn edges so perfect? 

Busy-Lizzie, as always, your garden makes me wish I lived in France...oh wait..I wish I did before then. I will retire there one day...

Keep up the great postings on this thread everyone...I'm loving them all! xx

Hello I'm a Lily Beetle, come and get me!

I've only seen one this year so far (in Kent) and that was sitting on my ceanothus!

I hope I haven't tempted fate, but I do try to remember to check my lilies every time I'm in the garden, I have a pretty beady eye.

I use a plant label and jar to scoop them into, then apply pressure until suitably squashed.

Gardening errors.....

Maidenhair ferns are more tollerate of sunlight. There is always an exception to the rule and I forgot this one in my easy gardening bullet points.

Glad you are growing Saxifrage and alpines, I especially love alpine phlox and have several very sprawling plants from one plant in just a couple of years! But I didn't include them because most alpines don't like being soggy in the winter, so you must have great natural drainage in your soil

 

Oh I just remembered, you can't go wrong in dry shade with any Dryopteris fern..I love that the clue is in the name

Bumblebee nest in my compost bin

Foxes have a thing for bumblebee nests. My bumblebee nest was attacked twice by foxes two years ago. Curious thing because bumbles don't store more than a bout a dessert spoon of honey.
