Re: Hows your bank holiday forcast looking and plans?

My husband is dragging me up a mountain on sunday, his idea of fun not mine :roll: . I have agreed as long as there is either a) a nice tea room at the bottom or b) a pub :lol:

The rest of the time I'll be in the garden faffing about at my leisure.

Re: Chelsea Flower Show

The only thing worse than the gnomes is the token Buddha statue.. :oops: No hope for me then, as I have a number of them in the house and garden. Whilst I think gnomes are ghastly, Buddha for me symbolises beauty and tranquility. I actually feel a sense of calm having them in my garden, it feels a ...

Re: My garden in the early stages of planting.

Some great plants Marmite icon_thumleft I know the difficulties of a windy garden. My last garden was 1/2 acre on side of a hill, boy did the wind blow across that garden. Whilst you enjoy great views, gardening is a challenge. My only advice would be to get plenty of spiky plants and ones with a to...
