Just sorting out the garden finding it very theraputic but i have a problem i got a Giant Hogweed at the bottom bit of the garden where i throw all the cuttings grass plants trees bushes. It's about 12 feet tall and very wide and ugly i slashed at it with a machete and the juice squirted out and it burns. It is the heat i reckon and an old boy neighbour says we should report it to the local council as they are dangerous and will spread quite fast, anyone had one in their garden?

If it's Japanese hogweed then you do need to report it to the council as its very invasive . If its ordinary hogweed, then just slash it and put some Round Up on it. How do you tell the difference? I haven't a clue- ask Monty Don

Giant Hogweed (Heracleum Mantegazzianum) imported in the 1800's by the gentry for their gardens grows upwards of twenty feet highly toxic causes severe burns grows by river banks which is where this one is. I booked a firm to come and clear the area but there may be some more further up the banks. The most dangerous plant in britain so it says, Bugger.

Let's hope it is Giant Hogweed then, although I am sure AD can tell the difference.

Been busy in the garden this week. It's that time of year.

Bit of a wild garden ours, if the frequency of surrendering Japanese soldiers is anything to go by, but I find it very therapeutic in these troubled times.

My missus likes having a nice garden and she likes buying plants (aka shopping) even though there is nowhere left to plant anything.

I'm expected to do the actual gardening and I don't like it.

Obviously the missus claims all the credit.

I love my garden and in the summer I’m in there most of every day. Sadly the weathers not exactly conducive this week but at least all my seedlings got a boost in the greenhouse with the fantastic temperatures and sun last week, I just hope we don’t have a cold April like we did last year which really set everything back. I’m still trying to crack succession planting where from February through to December there is colour and life leaving just January and February to overcome. I’m not far off and this year plan to use a lot more annuals to fill the gaps as I cut the finished perennials back. I’ve also created a cuttings section so that I can grow plants for indoors to save money buying flowers for Mrs Whites!! Not that I’m tight you understand 😀

Does any one else have to watch Gardners World to be reminded of more jobs for the weekend?

Anyway I've got a more important task for Norpig this weekend. Never mind gardening he needs to nip round to the Wythenshawe Food Bank and find out what's happened to their accounts. It won't do. They're more than two months overdue now. What's the problem?

I don't really bother with gardening. The police dig it up at least once a year.

Been loving the garden so far this spring - loads of colour in the beds and pots and the trees are starting to leaf. I've enjoyed sitting outside in my dressing gown in the morning with a coffee and a crossword in the Norfolk sunshine. We even broke in the firepit I built last year on Saturday night and managed to sit round it (with blankets) for three hours until our mates decided I was being stubborn and we went in. Beautiful clear blue skies today and the missus has gone out with her girlie mates so I can watch Manure and then the Wanderers back to back - perfect Smile
