Just seen this blog so here goes.

Dug up all the summer bedding plants as they are going over and looking untidy. 

I bought one packet of general flowering seeds which lasted the whole summer. 

Very good value for money.  I had a succession of beautiful flowers.  When one lot finished I had another to replace it.  (You have to remove the earlier ones to make way for the new.) 

I found lots of wallflower plants that I grew from seed and simply popped them in the ground for them to grow on.  They were hidden by my lovely summer bedding plants.  Now I've rediscovered them I've put them in the places I want them to flower and watered them in well.  (No need to buy any this year which is good).

Will spend the money I've saved on more spring bulbs. 

Managed to get a lavender from my local garden centre (The Dutch Nursery) on a special offer and going to follow Gardeners World tip (very good video) on how to take cuttings from a Heather plant.  That way I'll have loads of plants to grow on in the spring.

I believe gardening teaches you to be patient and the rewards are worth waiting for.  (An excellent approach to life in general I believe.)

Lol Lyn, misunderstood.....thought you meant one of you! 

Lyn, im happy to split the cosmos with BM if you dont have any more

Its ok Bekkie, theres a never ending supply of seeds here! you know how it is.

Lovely post there Arty,

Your garden sounds lovely, perhaps some photo's later?

My wallflowers had been in a couple of years and gone a bit leggy so I did cuttings, they are ready to go out now, I have acid soil, which they dont like so I make a can of limey water for them.

I cant grow Lavender here, its too damp and windy, cold as well but I do love it, I buy the odd pot in Morrisons just for the season, the bees love it.

The whole gardening thing is very therapeutic, as you say, teaches patience  care and love.

I have sent you a PM about the plants.Thanks you.
