@Wintersong That Stachys looks nice and I have added the Silver Swan to my list.

Started raining here

How long is this list?

Tomorrow I shall be setting out the tomatoes in the greenhouse.

Figrat, that is an impressive transformation!

Looks like here we are having the same sort of weather as you are. I have the heat on again.

I am still working on my construction project; might go and take some "in progress" photos today.

No luck with the globe artichokes--will add to my wish list. I must do a town trip soon--need new glasses.

Haha, this made me laugh as I imagined you passing by the artichokes for sale because of bad eyesight

Geoff what am I supposed to do if I keep seeing photos of lovely plants How big are your tomatoes?

Inkadog is it too expensive to order plants by post?

It is rather expensive, but I have done it. What with shipping charges,it's not really worth it for just one or two things. But it's a real treat to go to a garden center with a wish list--it's probably just as well I don't travel to town very often!

The tomatoes in the greenhouse are just coming into flower the ones in the fridge are red.

kate1123

Flower really??? You will need the red ones to throw at the tv.

That warm spell when they were in the greenhouse brought them on.

Well-and your review is?

figrat
Accessible gardening by real people.

You wonder why is it is a Scottish secret that has been kept for over 30 years.

I only stumbled across it last year.

figrat
I've heard about it so much, but never got round to watching it before. Should be more mainstream, that's for sure. I do like Monty Don, but he has it all at his fingertips. The Beechgrove bunch struck me as being in the real world. Will be interested in their potting compost trials. Gardening here today a bit of a no-go, have got toms, peppers, courgettes and cucumbers with nice warm bottoms in the gh - on the heated propagators without lids. Pressure washed the patio this afternoon.

We have sun!  Woot!  Hubby got the grass cut (avoiding the bluebells), and I tidied up the "flower bed".

My tomatoes are about an inch high... not too impressive, as are my cucumbers.  My strawberries are flowering, and my potatoes are looking bushy and lush.  Haven't got a clue if that means anything good is happening underground though!  lol

I think my first crop is going to be radishes and babyleaf salad in a few days. Yum!
