planting veg

I have been in the garden thismorning to finish planting out my seedlings of broad beans and curly kale. Have had to shuffle lots of things around to make space for them! It is the first time I have attempted to grow vegetables ( apart form runner beans a few years back! ) I'm hoping like all other gardeners that it won't be such an arctic winter this year. How I hate the snow!! some of my plants are still recovering from the cold which last winter brought.

Has anyone grown Romneya? I…

Go Green with SowGreen®

You might not know it, but landscaping, in both commercial and domestic settings, can be greatly enhanced by the addition of artificial grass. In damp or shaded grounds where natural turf cannot thrive, or where brown patchy areas indicate a lack of soil moisture (or the presence of buried rubble and builders’ waste, in the case of gardens at newer properties), artificial grass provides a practical solution that won’t compromise the aesthetic qualities of a natural lawn.

Oh it's been a lovely afternoon, with a bit of late summer sun and to the garden-I-will-go. Those asters have been bugging me. Don't ask me how (they weren't there last year)  but they came up in the very front of a raised border so that look very awkward towering above the otherwise rather lovely foliage plants in that bed. Plants can do that you know. It might be you moved something last year or this spring and unwittingly took a handful of roots from another plant. Eh voila! A lovely…
