Improving, Fairy at least there is access and i've had to go shopping as some of the throwing out left me a little short in places.
No gardening done, maybe later. I've run errands for FIL, left kids at GParents. Took one shopping. Dragged em away from tv/computer. Now sent them outside to play on trampoline, unfortunatlely they have now become 'boys' - fighting , shouting and being annoying - better send them back to gadgets! Have started a list of jobs they can do to help around the house, prompted by Potty but something I've been meaning to do for ages.
I have collected some garden goblins (missed delivery yesterday) but both have some damage so waiting to see how that's responded to.
Can see lobelia has started to flower but not been to have a close look yet so that's my next 'job'...
Mrs garden up to gods country on Monday for a week visiting my folks. A friend of theirs has just lost her hubby and has a huge and empty garden and has asked me to go round and help her plant up some stuff am more than happy to do so taking a load of seeds to scatter ....... As for feeding chickens with Xbox no sadly not that will be a reminder text every day!!!! Now I'm heading to evening forkers to post my Tom pic!!!!
Goodness where is everyone this morning?
At time of writing no posts yet but I expect someone else is writing as I am.
Not much planned for today- just pottering
Have a lovely day all x
Rain rain and more rain... Was going to the Egham show today but not sure now mind you I do need to pack!! Potty Gardner the yellow plants in my pm thread are dwarf rudbeckia like is said bargain at £1.50 a pot at Tesco they are ladened with flowers.... Garden girl re my toms yeah lol I thought they were cherry toms lol imagine my surprise then they started to grow!!!! They have been great the vines are sooo heavy but I have to say a lot with BER do we do a pumpkin carving forum????? My hubby loves it and gets very very artistic.... Gardenmaiden chilli sauce in the post Monday.... Let me know what you think.... Have a great day all it's coffee time now mmmmmmmmm
Good morning all - tried to get on earlier but the site was down - just had plum compote, granola and yoghurt for brekkie - so good. Washing's on the line, sun's shining - now I'd better get dressed and go and pot those plug plants that have been waiting since Friday!
Same for me Dove- wasn't working- gremlins at work again!
Beautiful day here so I can get on with my borders now that shed's out the way. More grafting but I feel I'm making real progress now. The bees are already humming and buzzing away on the buddleia. What better sound is there- just need a blackbird singing to make it perfect!
Those little Rudbeckias look great Stacey -what a bargain.
pg - enjoy pottering. Nice doing that- haven't done much of it recently so I'll try and do some today in between stripping turf
Brrrr - first time I have felt like that. Still not jumper time though. Am going to do GH things I think, take cuttings, pot on some and maybe sow some seeds.
Am I too late to sow Foxglove?
May do some digging if it brightens up
I wish i could use the site gremlins as an excuse for my tardiness, but alas i was actually still sleeping. Contemplating the rain as i type - hoping the forecast is right and it clears soon. Would like to plant my new sidalcias.
FG - your shed move has created you loads of space - what are you planning for the gap?
Stacey - loved your rudbeckias too - they are brilliant plants for just going on and on and on. I had one self seed and come up in the middle of my box hedge, so rather than dig it up i have been cutting the flowers for the house - they last more than 3 weeks in a vase
Wow cool yeah now I have cleared te bed under the dreaded Llandii ( won't cut it down due to privacy but keep it tidy with a nice clear trunk and square look!) so now I have two more to play with.am tempted to leave them in their pots till next year. Just had a quick hoe down behind my rosemary bush and found a peony in a pot!!
Matty - sow foxgloves now - perfect timing
If anybody finds themselves in the Derbyshire Dales this afternoon, Bakewell Secret Gardens is on today. Every year a different area of the town offers people the opportunity to see gardens that are normally out of sight. In aid of Oxfam.
Just hope that yesterday's and this morning's rotten weather hasn't flattened everything for them.
It is now very hot. Some rain last night. Perfect for those down here for the bank holiday.
Moved ...swapped...some plants in full flower. Should be ok. Big rootball and plenty of watering in. I'm happy cos plants look better in their new homes and I know now how they will look next summer too.
Thought gardeners world prog was good again (watched recording yesterday) but would have liked a half hour devoted to the garden Carol visited.
Stay cool folks
Some rain Verdun? we had lots. Quite needed but things have collapsed under the weight. I've sorted out all my collected and received seed this morning. Nut and seed roast in the oven to feeze later. Just hope I haven't got any of the ingredients mixed up.
Sun's out now and I'm going to sow the roscoea seeds I've been sent through the seed share
