HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Afternoon all, Have been thinning out seeds and washing baby clothes ready for secondborn's hospital bag this morning while she is at work.  Only 5 weeks to go now so need to be ready.  

Have some plug plants to pot up this afternoon.  Have more seeds to sow but that might have to wait until another day.

Whats best for screening a warehouse - upto 5-6m. Please see images.

Hi GHWorld and welcome to the forum.  I have a dense leylandii hedge at the bottom of my garden and hate it.  I have windows overlooking my garden and inherited the hedge so it looks like its here to stay.  Although I have planted a couple of trees and if they grow well enough I would consider removing some of the Leylandii.  You on the other hand are not overlooked.  I agree the view could be better but if your garden contained lots of pretty interesting plants then you simply wouldn't notice the backdrop.  Personally, I wouldn't use a mirror in the garden as birds often fly into them and die which can be quite upsetting. 

Go for the trellis and plant clematis, honeysuckle, roses.  There are a number of evergreen climbers you could consider, Chocolate Vine is one of them

Oh it did.  It grew above the 6ft fence and didn't need staking.

Heres a photo of Lemon Queen in my garden.  It was planted in Spring last year.  The photo was taken in October.


Not sure if this photo is going to post.

I have jasmine and montana rubens growing through leylandii at the bottom of my garden.  I have also planted Vitis Coignettiae for autumn colour.

I'm with Fairy on this,  I grow lots of wildlife friendly plants and only use chemical solutions occasionally.

Grew honesty chedwyn from seed last year and allowed them to go to seed in the garden so hoping they will reappear this year.

Evening all, Glad everyone on here is OK following the Belgium bombings.  Thoughts are with those who have been affected.  It seems that there will always be one element of society who feel that bloodshed is the only way to get their own way.

Have spent today looking after poorly grandchildren. Took them for a walk around Gulivelt Park in Worcester to blow the germs away and feed the ducks.

Had some plants arrive today that will need potting up tomorrow, haven't checked the weather forecast yet so hope it's OK.

Morning all, the sun keeps trying to come out here but I've been out to open up the greenhouse and cold frame and it's really cold. No gardening planned for today.

I'm going with secondborn to her final scan. I'm really excited.
