Thank you for the info peeps I will leave the turf til September then

Weather has been horrendous here today too, my garden is a sorry sight. Just clinging to the hope of a possible dry Saturday. Have a day off work 2moro and more wind and rain forecast so will face the chore of filling in my tax return....deep joy!

Geoff, dinner was roast chicken, new pots, carrots n brocolli yum yum. Noticed today that I am down to my last inch or so of tomato chutney and cant see me having a bumper harvest this year to make anymore

Lottie is this year a 'special' birthday? Am sure all your plans will come together in the end!

Hi everyone, havent been on here for a couple of weeks so spent ages trying to look for the thread 'may in your garden' then realised we're now into June! sorry very blonde moment. Left a post in June in your garden but had no replies so can I pick your brains on here?

First hope you had a nice holiday Geoff and i can see Kate is on form with her banter lol, always makes me smile

Now my question.....drum roll...... not exciting though Im afraid, does anyone know if there is a 'better time of year' to lay new turf. We have a small area prepared in our front garden and we have been clearing a large area in our side garden for veggies but its taking so long and I have nowhere to put out my peas and beans. i was thinking of delaying the turf til later in the year and using the area for the beans etc instead. Should we have the miracle of a hot August and a late harvest of beans would I have any probs laying new turf then?

Gawd Im waffling now, hope you get my drift, any advice would be welcome

June in Your Garden!

Hi everyone, some amazing garden pics on here! Hope you have all had a good Bank holiday weekend. We still have lots to clear in our garden and really dont think we are going to get it done in time to plant out my peas and beans. We have an area out the front which we were going to lay with turf so i could use that area if really needed and delay the turfing. Is there 'a best time' to lay new turf, could I hold it off until later in the year?

We've had lots of rain today battering my beautiful foxgloves and peonies, hope theres still some flowers left  tomorrow!

What a brilliant weekend we've all had, lovely and sunny without being too hot to work. Have done more 'clearing', still loads to go lol and have planted out alot of my new shrubs etc, my 'post building work' front garden is starting to take shape at last.

I collected some summer plants and herbs from Excitable Boy.....lovely to meet you and again a huge thank you! The hostas have been given a new home and look very nice indeed . I just wish I didnt have to go back to work tomorrow, would love to spend even more time in the garden......dream on Woo!

@Figrat youve been a busy bee today!

@Inkadog what an amazing lady your friend Zona is, hope Im as active at her age

@Wintersong, lovely pictures, the Euphorbia and Berberis compliment each other beautifully. If you hadnt written the name of the plants I would just be saying how lovely they looked. I actually sound as if I know what Im talking about now lol. Im so glad I joined this forum, have already learnt so much in just a few days. You definately 'have the eye' for it, well done.

Am now off to look at the video of Lilylouise's garden
