A Wave of Blue Bulbs for the Spring Garden

Although autumn is one of my favorite times of the year, it is also a very busy time with lots of tasks to complete.  One of my favorite goals to complete in the fall is the Planting of Bulbs.  In early to mid summer the surge of catalogues arrive and of course my intent is to order early to get the selection and more often than not I wait until September and even October to place my orders.

This year I was very excited about planting a new area with all Blue Bulbs.  I love blue and…

The Porsche Cayennes of Larissa



One of the funnier stories to come out of the fiasco that is the Greek economy has emerged in the Athens News. Apparently a couple of years ago there were more Porsche Cayennes in the country than people declaring tax on earnings of more than 50,000 Euros. The diligent and talented citizens of the…

Self-servicing

***WARNING - PLEASE DO NOT READ IF YOU FIND MACHINE TALK BORING!***

 

I would like to service all of my equipment this winter and have been planning it for a short while now. But what problems might I come across?

 

I did a basic van service last week - oil/air/fuel filters and engine oil change. Things seemed fine until I realised I needed a one-way pump to rebleed the fuel lines! A bit of mad dashing around, a visit to my local friendly garage (Elders of…

New Build Garden 7 years on how are the materials looking

We carried out a substantial new build front garden in early 2004 in Whetstone North West London for a semi-retired couple on behalf of a fantastic designer Paul Collins who is sadly no longer with us and the results of his excellent design and the landscaping installation completed by Arbour Design & Build stands out to this date.

We removed around 100 tons of earth, concrete and debris over the 2 month build, rebuilt the drains, installed oak and brick retaining walls and laid…

Busy, busy, busy we are all very busy, but how can you get the best from the Landscape Juice Network?

Well get yourself an egg timer, or just check the clock on the wall, and spend 20 minutes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday on the network to help others, and ultimately yourself.

Here's what can you do in those 20 minutes:

  1. Read through the recent forum posts and if you can take part in at least…

Heritage gardens are now ‘greener’ thanks to battery trimmers

National Trust properties in south Somerset have trimmed energy costs, time and noise as well as hedges this year. The four properties in this area of Trust administration switched to battery power in 2011 for the significant hedge cutting and topiary work that has to be undertaken annually and the results are significant. It is the Trust’s Greener Garden Fund for more ecologically sound outdoor upkeep of its properties that aided the purchase of Pellenc Helion lithium-ion battery-powered…

Beating the Big Freeze

A common misconception with artificial sports pitches is that they are ‘all-weather’, so much so that they are often referred to as just the ‘All Weather Pitch’.

Lazy gardening

I’m a lot more interested in plants than I am in lawns, and our lawns have been gradually diminishing since we moved in 4 years ago. However, neither my husband nor I are particularly keen on digging, and we’ve run out of places to stack stripped turf, so when I decided that another chunk of lawn should make way for plants, I ordered in 2 cubic metres of mushroom compost and spread it straight on the grass, using some big sheets of cardboard that some furniture had been delivered in, to…

The joy of gardening - and how I discovered it!

I am definitely a 'late starter' when it came to gardening unlike a lot of people on here. As a small child, I always liked making mud pies (nothing changes there!) and always loved daffodils and a rockery that we had at the bottom of our garden. I remember climbing all over the stones and getting shouted at when I crushed mom's aubretia or london pride (as she called it).

Anyway, as I got older and entered my teens the garden pretty much disappeared from my life and I became a proper…

Wild flower turf or seed? A chance to see the figures

One of the talks at the Creating Landscapes show was by James Hewetson-Brown, of Wild Flower Turf, who argued that it was better to use turf instead of seed to create a meadow.

Such a belief shouldn't come as any surprise considering the…
