is anybody sick of the rain and the cold wind that has been blowing around us.. last week I spotted my new rhodos drooping inspite of alot of rain in recent times but it was a reminder that that cold wind is drying out the ground as fast as the rain is falling ... at least the weeds are growing well and at speed!

Last weekend was a great chance to be out and pottering around . We got old manure from our neighbouring farmer and spread it around the hedging and roses. We cleared around the bottom of the front garden which has a mix of very tall useless pine trees with leafing branches at the top and sycamore . Now we're looking at that area and pondering what is the best thing to plant in front of the leggy pines to reduce the sound of traffic passing and to make it more pleasant to the eye.

I was checking my 'Just Joey' roses the other day as some of them didnt leaf so well and look pale . To my surprise they were full of greenfly even in the curl of the leaves .So everything got sprayed ! I had put well rotted manure around them as well a few weeks ago but a few of them have very pale leaves so I ve tried some rose food as well . Any suggestions

went about buying hedging for my back garden today and after much pricing and thinking about which type we decided on taxus baccata . Our local garden centre said it was a native plant and should withstand the very cold weather we experienced in the past two winters. So, we bought 25 plants for 60 euro .. hopefully it will survive better that the griselinia hedging that once again got a hammering in the area this year..
