Missing Spring Fun

Posted: 07/06/2013 at 23:24

Call me sad but i am missing spring and all the fun of sowing and pricking on etc. All has been set out and lout in final positions and tomato and veg all sorted too. Only think left is Astrantia seedlings from winter ripe seed just showing first true leaves. Also phone perennial lobelia my partner tipped on the lawn by accident and I tried to scoop up, I'm seeing tiny plants coming, no idea if they will last the season or what to do with them.?!??,


but what next, not enough weeding  or tasks to keep me occupied! When do people start off their winter bedding and winter interest for borders! Ideas.... Thanks

Like that idea. I think I need to searcfruit an around the year plant then I will be ok. I don't have enough space or tubs to have summer and winter cover plants. 


So anyone know of an easy all year round climber. That is pretty in summer and winter??

I have my thinking cap on with some if these ideas, it is badly positioned as takes prime view from in conservatory and in garden. It's nagging at die so I think I will have to do something. 


I like the idea of clematis up v shaped trellis so 2 of us could lift. But this won't solve the prob in winter!!

The wally that put our decking down before we moved in left no gaps between or at the edges and he didn't lay it with a run off so it ponds in the centre!!! I have drilled some holes but they swell shut!!!

Figrat the oil delivery man told me not to put anything on or attached to the tank as its not good for the tank! I get a beautiful view of it from my conservatory as well as from the garden!!!

I haven't seen big pots where the saucer could go on feet. I'm intrigued.,.

thanks Mine is against the fence so would need to box in. It's just difficult as its an essential item but ugly. I try not to put pots on the decking as they rot the decking faster but its ugly and letting the garden down.

But what would grow in tubs that would be ok for winter too?? Will show you view from conservatory. The messy item at the side is a makeshift log store but I seriously need a neat solution. I'm an iPhone user so if someone could open link and post my picture back in pls. Stand by.....
