It is still grey here and has a really damp feel, nothing is going to want to be planted out in these conditions.

figrat what a transformation.

Geoff be careful you are being monitored They may not let you back in.

It has been so wet here, I am wondering whether to do my Chelsea chop early?

I love your before and after photo's Figrat!  It's always great to look back and see what you have accomplished.

I can never bring myself to do a Chelsea chop.

I have just been outside again-that wind has got a real chill to it at 8C-apparently it was warmer at Christmas-just thought I'd share.

I shall put my thermals on before I go out.

Just got back from the garden centre. I really really wanted to buy Heuchera Marmalade and Euphorbia Silver Swan but they were £8 each, so I've opted for three decent sized Buxus sempervirens for £10 and a Stachys byzantina.

The Box will get potted on and pampered into topiary over the next three years, the latter will get propagated like mad for a big spread in the full sun border next year. I had a Stachys once before which ended up as slug dinner and there was me thinking that slugs didn't eat silver foliage, so I'm well prepared this time round.

Slightly depressed about the lack of sun and the lack of sun forcast to come, but I still enjoy the growing season whatever the weather.
