For Whistonlass, to show you how the border soon fills up!

This border was bare and has filled out in about fourteen weeks, I am really pleased with its progress.

That's lovely - no one would guess you were in a city!

I wish Sticki I had my time all over again and I would fill this garden to bursting, but even a full garden needs attention doesnt it?

18 Jun, 2011

 

looking very nice....

18 Jun, 2011

 

I think they need even more! I have put quite a lot of things in my garden and I'm sure there is more to do now - it's also on a slope and I can't just hoe it!

Thanks Holly, I am enjoying buying new plants, things that i have never grown before and I get the ideas from on here!! Sticki, perhaps you could hoe on roller boots,LOL.!

It has come on a treat Grandmage...isn't it lovely,when they all grow so well ?

18 Jun, 2011

 

Sticki, not sure about one of those, if I got on one I wouldnt be able to get off! Lol, Thanks again Paul those lights are from the GC I have four of them they are lovely in the evenings. Thanks too Bloomer, I am tickled that everything has grown so well, I have lost one or two plants but they can be replaced.

How sweet of you, thanks Pixi, this is a brand new border this year as we had it dug completely out so I am so pleased with the results this summer. :~)

23 Jun, 2011

 

Are your lanterns solar powered? I think they are lovely.

23 Jun, 2011

 

Yes Sticki they are got them at the GC, two in a box, so have got four. I really liked them when I saw them and they give a nice silvery glow through the night.

23 Jun, 2011

 

I really like them too, bit like out of a fairy story!

Looks stunning flourishing wonderfully for you it has done well.

26 Jun, 2011

 

I am so pleased 6d, and it is much easier to look after too, we are still not finished yet though, we are working on the bottom patch!! Might take some time.

26 Jun, 2011

 

I bet it is easier to look after, hope it looks as good as this when you ve completed the bottom patch, which I shall look forward to seeing.

26 Jun, 2011

 

My man is coming this wednesday, so wont be long I hope.

26 Jun, 2011

 

I hope he will make it as lovely as your border which I m sure he will.

26 Jun, 2011

 

We have just got rid of our two compost bins today and our old shed, I put them on Freecycle and they were collected in record time!! It looks so much tidier now.

26 Jun, 2011

 

Yes they come in handy but can make the place look untidy if you have nt got any where to hide them, just shows just by removing a few things how different things look. I gave mine to my son and the water but for the allotment.

sticki may be you cud bungie jump up and down lol .............. madge your garden is really looking gud now ......... is this since you had the garden dun !!!

28 Jun, 2011

28 Jun, 2011

 

Yes Cristina it is everything is spreading and looking good and as you say Stroller in such a short time, I am so pleased.

28 Jun, 2011

 

am loving my banks now too ........... remember last year wen i was moaning it isn't growing fast lol

29 Jun, 2011

 

Oh Wow, Gmadge....it looks fab. I am amazed at how quickly it has filled out. My borders look very depleted in comparison although I have not had my borders in as long as yours. You've chosen well with your planting.

I've been out today and bought a few more plants so I'll be putting those in the borders/rockery tomorrow (and weeding!!...the little blighters are beginning to make an appearance).

Thanks for directing me to this photo as I had not come across it...still trying to play catch up on blogs/photos. I think it will be the dead of winter before I manage it! lol

Good luck with your future garden plans too :)

Hi W.lass, glad you found the photo and thanks for the compliment, why I took this pic. was because it was a completely bare border but I had plants from the old one to transplant and then i have been buying new ones whenever I felt like it, I am still adding new now and I find it better that way to find a plant actually in flower at the GC you can then see what it looks like! I am delighted that the border no longer looks 'new' because it is filling up fast and as you say so are the bloomin weeds! Keeps us busy though,Lol ! I have sprinkled some seeds of poppy here and there and I have also found new plants growing to my suprise, things that i thought were gone but No, the seeds must have been dug in when the work began and now I have found lost plants, wonderful!
I know what it is like to play 'catch up' with photos etc, sometimes I can only read blogs and then I look at photos and dont comment so that cuts down the work, I just hope everyone understands the reason why, as you say it will be January before we catch up, Lol.
Our work is still in progress at the mo, and we have got rid of our old shed and the greenhouse is going and then we will have a new shed, no rest for the wicked as they say!!! So take heart now, your garden will grow! x

Thanks Gmadge....encouraging words :)

That's looking superb!

Thanks Karen, how sweet of you, it is looking even lovlier now as this nice sweet rain has made everything grow at speed, weeds included! Now the garden is looking so tidy and neat I enjoy it much more, I have found verbena,love in the mist, poppies, columbines, sun flowers etc,of which I thought would never grow at one time! Also I have been putting things onto 'freecycle' and folks have been collecting all my rubbish! Great fun. :~)

16 Jul, 2011

 

Oh thanks Camillia, it is even more packed now as the rain and sun have made everything grow like mad.
