Re: Gardeners in the O2 Community

The seasons are certainly playing havoc with gardens.

The last of my annual bedding plants have been removed this morning. They had been going for longer than usual .....but then we had the frost the last two nights and that's finished them

However, I have a massive hardy fuschia in the middle of my front lawn. It comes back year after year with an abundance of flowers.

This year, although it grew well, there were no flowers on it till the end of August. Now it is flowering like mad, normally at the time I would be pruning it back!!  Confused

Hi @Cleoriff

Yes re your fuschia ~ the same is happening in my garden.

My summer planting is not over yet still looking great.

The rose that did not flower June/July decided to flower October!

Very pretty too.

Not many leaves down off the trees so still looking pretty good.

Hello again nice to hear you have been in Glorius Gardens @WispaRed7

Nothing more relaxing even if working in them!

 


Hi @TallTrees ... I just look at the Courtyard Gardens through windows in the hospital when visiting mum, depending upon where I go these gardens are very inviting rose there is a door to each one of them I believe, but doubt it is open to all, I'd say you need to seek permission ... wildlife too are there amongst the easily grown Silver Birch Trees ever present in the loadsa gardens four leaf clover

Re: Gardeners in the O2 Community

How is everyone's garden at present? sunflower

I came a different way home from town today, on purpose, so's I could look at some nice gardens along a rather stylish terrace

I want to take some pics of my 1 and only flower planter ... & ... some snowdrops I've seen today ... the light needs to be right though ... today has been a grey cloudy day

@TallTrees

I have got to be the world`s worst gardener - even when I could (but wouldnt) potter - so can`t comment

But I wanted to share something with you and other posters on this thread -

The Autistic Gardener (of Ch4 TV programme) lives not far from me. I `ve never spoken to him but my neighbour has and says he`s a really nice guy. Also local paper reports on charity events he does in area.

I've missed this tv programme @Mi-Amigo ... so will look it up as it interests me ... ... ... my x-husband is a landscape architect & did all our gardens (we moved about a lot with his career) ... I love being in a garden ... but ... shy away from actual work ... so ... it's plants in pots ie those which look after themselves in my yard

Re: Gardeners in the O2 Community

Whereas I love it....I have snowdrops in flower...I keep looking round the garden to see what can be done. (Nothing ...it's all done)

Roll on Spring (and summer) sunflower

Re: Gardeners in the O2 Community

Hello Green thumbed friends!

 

The weather has been like a yo-yo this summer and my plants have both loved and loathed it. I only have some plants on my little balcony but they keep drying up quickly. I miss having a big garden! My daughter grows many fruits in the garden and has had a bumper crop of raspberries. 

 

What do you think I can make out of 10,000 raspberries?
