Gardening Thread



Hiya. I thought some of the most boring members of DiS could all be together in here and talk about gardens, sheds and lawnmowers.

What a fucking excellent thread! Here’s a poll to start:

  • I have a garden and enjoy gardening
  • I do not have a garden but would like to do some gardening one day
  • I have a garden and hate doing the gardening
  • I do not have a garden and thank fuck, i’ll tell you, because gardening is fucking horrible

You’ve reminded me to fuck up the anonymous plant/tree in my front non-garden.

I’m setting the bank holiday weekend aside for a full on frenzy of gardening. I need to get some gravel for in front of the raised beds (it’s currently just mud - very unsightly), a few planter troughs and I might even treat myself to an electric hedge trimmer. I think I’ll also try planting more courgettes this year - even though last years were a bit of a failure. Is it wrong that I’m quite excited by all this?

what about “I have multiple gardens and I don’t really know how I feel about gardening yet”?

you just need one of these.

First year of planting in the garden. It was such a state last summer, that it took all the time to dig over, prepare the soil etc. But now its go time.

Already got the veg in, got some hops growing, gonna mow the lawn again this weekend. Lovely stuff.

@marckee any ideas on what this is yet? It’s currently the height of the house.

Already started for this year - two cuts of the lawn, fully weeded, moss killer down and raked out, planted some jasmine.

Ground is fucking rock solid though - have we had any significant rain this year at all? That said, some forecast over the next couple of days so might get some grass seed down after the kids have gone to bed this evening.

:heart: gardening…

We have a garden that is an absolute mess at the moment. Now that the house is pretty much finished, the plan is to work on the garden over the summer and autumn, to be in a position to plant it up next spring.

I think we had a conversation about this before, maybe, but we’re looking at a thyme and camomile lawn, rather than grass.

I have a garden and I don’t like gardening. BUT, my TV loves gardening and she does an amazing job at it.

Currently building a veg garden. Constructed 4 raised beds from scaffolding planks. Looks pretty professional.


Excellent! I properly jet-washed our paving slabs last weekend and they’ve come up brilliant. This reminds me: I need cement to repoint some bits. I rarely feel as manly as when I’m mixing cement with a beer on the go.

looks like grape vines

We just got a 6ft fence installed. It makes the garden into a really nice private area. Really looking forward to summer.

There are two apple trees just close enough to suspend a hammock between. THAT’S gardening.

Jet washing is great fun!


Sycamore or Norwegian Maple, I think.
