Gardening with Deborah

Deb is like a wild mustang, she will plant anything without fear.Here is Japanese knotweed coming up for the summer. It is contained but escapes on a regular basis and vigilance is needed. This plant can go 15 metres underground to find a new place to come up, and it is sneaky too for it will send runners out a good way before coming up. Someone once told us that his one was not spreading, until he phoned us the next year with strangled cries.

Very funny you are both true gardeners I wish I could get Greg interested but if it is not got a motor two or four wheels,  he is great doing all the hard work but no gardening will dig a bit if I needed it

You're very lucky Martin that both of you are interested in the garden. Unfortunately for me, my wife sees the garden as a chore.

I am the same here, Noel sees the garden as a chore, will help out with some of the heavy stuff, but I usually pull and drag it myself.
