The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



Had a really busy day i am trying to get a row of shrubs growing all down one side of my garden. I started without any knowledge of gardening and have discovered that Ceanathus just will not grow in my garden for some reason. I don’t know if there are different types my neighbour had one with larger flowers, it seemed to flower all summer and look beautiful. The flowers on mine lasted about a month and that was it and the rest of the shrub looked awful. Well all the others are doing really well, so not bad for a first time. Have put a day dawn in today any suggestions on the best way to look after them would be greatly received. Also have been putting flowers in pots. The garden looks lovely today. The grass is lush and green. Will make the most of that till the weather warms up

Homely - please would you tell us what a 'day dawn' is? Then someone will be able to help you with advice. Glad your garden is looking good.

There's nothing like a busy gardening day - nothing can beat it.
