I have hellebore envy too Matty - that one is a stunner

Planted my primroses, violas, Mrs Betty and some daffs for indoors.  a couple of my outdoor daffs are showing their first yellow, and just been for a good long tramp to help littlest chicklet break in some new walking boots (DofE looms). Think i might have to have a snooze .

Evening all busy day in the garden ... Put my 24 GW strawberries into the strawberry barrel, transplanted aqueligas, potted bare root astrantia, potted new gosseberry, planted new chilli seeds a friend sent me ( satans kiss) and some more cherry bombs and some pepper and tomato seeds oh and tomatillo seeds. Then enjoyed my garden........

Stacey - those hellebores are gorgeous!!!


That snail would scare of anything.


The ones I have here are that size Stacey...

Love that really black one. I'm sure you don't really need it though, do you? I can give it a home.... 

chicky- sorry to be thick -  what does D of E mean? 



Back from the cinema, had a lovely afternoon and the girls enjoyed the film. 

If the tree icon starts working again (it seems to be having a break at the mo) then I might put some pics on . . . 

OH watching the rugby so I put my new seeds and feeders out. Hopefully the blue tits will spot them and show the sparrows what to do! Or at least that's what seemed to happen then I put them out originally

I love the black one fairy you are welcome to one of its babies!!!!! They are crosse with the harvington pink double just above it so who knows ..... Failing that I will send you some seeds later in the year if you like...... They are all new planted next year so haven't seen most in flower Most of the harvington a are from a hayloft offer!!!!


Fairy - sorry, jargon alert - Duke of Edinburgh - the scheme that makes teenagers tramp round the countryside with rucksacks on their backs, sleep under canvas, and (and this is the most arduous bit ) survive a weekend without their phone 

Stacey Docherty

Needless to say never got the award!

Hi All...
I have not been a member here long but the WUM/weirdo/troll and I crossed which now makes some of my posts look strange seeing that the offenders posts have been removed.
I did wonder whether that there may be a bipolar problem... I did see all of last night's posts but left early to get some work done at the allotment and have been busy watching rugby since so have only just caught up. This forum should be a friendlier place for a while now methinks.

Watching rugby iGrow? What about the garden
