22nd and 23rd. spuds and trees help


had to get out of the house and try to relax so angie and i went to b&q to get some sanding sheets for the floor. whilst there we popped into their garden centre and looked for some plugs, found nothing i really wanted. on to our local shopping mall and bought a usb cable for £15 to connect to my mobile so that i can upload some pics.

that bit was fine. placed the mobile cd into the pc and for some reason that would not run. got into my computer and found that the drive was missing for some reason. fiddlesticks or somthin!

will either borrow matt’s digital camera and get him to mail them when he gets back to uni or get my mate tony to upload them onto his pc and e-mail them to me.
do not hold your hands in eager anticipation of some stunning pics of my eden in bristol as i am no good at design and could not create a cottage garden as much as i have tried. that is why i love so many of your wonderful creations.

going to our local garden centre today. stunning view of the two severn bridges from the top of over lane. must take a pic one day. want to get some rose fertiliser, something for the lawn, young trees and vedgie patch. some magic would do fine.
bought a 40 k.g. bag of humix manure for the two small ornamental cherries. removed surrounding turf and watered in all the manure.

last year i planted three rows of spuds, when i dug them up i could not have got them all as i seem to have spuds growing everywhere in my patch. do other vedgie growers leave them in and treat the extras as a bonus or get them out????

i am planning to plant a small “ornamental tree” in the far corner of my garden, well about 6 to 8 feet from the fences. thought about a weeping cherry or that white cherry with horizontal branches. it will be in a some shade as my neighbour has conifers at the bottom of his garden. crab apple. help! any other ideas?????

look forward to replies, take care all. dave.
bluebirds home on saturday. can not afford to loose if we are going into the play-offs!!!!

Cherries look good in flower. Then you have petals all over the garden.
What about a red Acer? I have Palmatum 'Bloodgood' in mine and it is a vibrant red all through to autmun, then it sort of glows just before leaf drop.

Take a look at my pics, see what you think.
