    How does your garden grow?

    Begonias, impatiens and fuschias in amongst hostas and ferns would be great. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2021/apr/04/shady-characters-plants-for-dark-corners

    Sorry lads, not quite up to speed with this but I think I've both understood this correctly and checked the spreadsheet! Can I swap out Zielinski for Francisco Trincao, please. Ta! If someone could add to th lost and do the honours, etc please. Ta.

    Transgender stuff - what's going on?

    Yep, I have a [men's] waterproof from the US and the zip is on the wrong side. Isn't the reason that men's and women's zips are different here because historically men dressed themselves but women had their zips done up for them, so they were the "correct" way round for the person doing it for them? They've just never been adapted since.

    Sheffield cunts. Endcliffe Park is one of our regular dog walking haunts but our local park was also quite filthy this morning, mate of mine said it was the same at another one near him. Cunts.

    You have a geodesic dome for a greenhouse, Buckminster? Sensational, repped.

    As long as you know about it then it isn't but they can take over a bed or outgrow a pot before you know it.

    Be careful with raspberries and blackberries mate, they can spread like hell. I think you can get clumping ones that don't spread but, as much as I love them, I won't have them in the garden. Try a tayberry for a similar-ish alternative that doesn't spread or a mulberry, although they take 7 years to bear fruit (mine is 5 years old this year!). Otherwise get a couple of blueberries.

    This is what it looked like when we bought it - doesn't look all that different from this perspective!

    How does your garden grow?

    Some of you might remember that this was just a lawn when we moved in 5 years ago. Since then we've turned half in to an allotment and extended the house. I've spent the last two weekends making a start on turning the remaining lawn in to something more attractive, ecologically vibrant and practical. I've lifted the turf to about half of the lawn to lay a path using bricks we salvaged from the building work and garage demolition. The left hand side of that will become a wildflower meadow in the short term and we'll plant some fruit bushes and other bits in between. We have really poor drainage and the lawn puddles quite badly; I used a lot of the turf and soil to make a grass berm (under the netting) and I'm also putting a roll and flower beds in to the right hand side. We're going for a low maintenance drought and flood resilient planting scheme with a simple pallete of purple and white flowers. This is years more work away from being done and mature but I hope to get much of the above work done this year. Progress photo below, I'm actually a little further on than this now (the path is dug to its full depth ready for hardcore and sand):
