This might seem an odd idea but I’m widowed, living in a rural cottage near Northwich, and have a good sized garden that has got away from me...to be honest, I never even began to get the better of it.
I do have dogs and chickens. I wondered if anyone in the area wanted to enjoy gardening and might like to share mine.
I’ll do my bit but would like to be guided by someone more knowledgeable. Dani.
What's the matter with us! I see a new article - 'The Best Wild Bird Foods for your Garden' What I wonder is why we can't let wild birds be wild and fend for themselves - why do we have this need to make them into 'pets' and drag them into our economic system so that they become as reliant on supermarket produce as we are!
Is it possible to grow schizostylis in pots? And if so what size of pot would be best? Mine are to close to a low grown wygeila and don't flower because of the shade.
Not sure where to put them yet so would like to keep them in pots for a while, maybe 'til next year.
I have a plant in the flower bed, about 2 feet tall, which has white trumpet shaped flowers and green knobbly cone-type attchments. The leaves are dark green and holly shaped bur much larger and smoother. I can send photos to anyone if it would help.
Hi, I am a volunteer Master Composter in Norfolk, happy to help you with any questions you may have in respect of reducing landfill/ reusing your scraps and adding goodness back to the land. Love to chat to fellow gardeners too!
Does anyone know a cheap/easy way to remove a huge phormium which has taken over my front garden? I have asked a gardener and he is talking about bringing in a digger! Could I just cut away the frons from the ground level from the outstide and make it much smaller?
