London garden transformation


By jmunns


So far, removed lots of heavy concrete slabs and put grass down. Need to get rid of barbed wire and old fence. We cut down huge apple tree which had fallen across entire garden but was still growing but producing only a few apples. Now built frame work for new young tree coming from base. Planted some pretty sweet peas, tomatoes, cameila and rhodendrendron (or however u spell it) and finally an azela.

Thanks for the encouragement, it's lovely that I got such a quick response from you all. I haven't figured out this website yet, so I haven't been able to reply to my answer from my question. Basically I planted a cameila 6 days ago already I see signs that it's not happy, it's leaves are curling and it's flowers are browning. So how do I make the soil acidic? As I guess that maybe the prob. The foxgloves a planted last year have rocked sky high, and look like finally they want to open thier amazing flowers. It's a shame it's not our garden, I mean we rent it, so it's been really left to Become a distaster. The first real issue was bindweed and ivy! Which had killed most of the garden plants. The second was two well rooted thawn bushes, right in the middle!!! That took alot of digging!!!!!

Pitty it's not your own property maybe, but it's still nice to have an interesting garden. Maybe you could grow the camelia in a pot.
