been furtling all day. Had a great day sorting out, planting carrots and buying more perennials. Lets hope tomorrow brings more furtling!!

 

established 2ltr pots of perennials £1.50. What a bargain. I'm lucky to have found a garden enthusiast in the next village with links to suppliers!!

I repotted them about 7 weeks ago and since have kickeI on. They are not about 2-3 inches tall and bushing a bit. Just bit unsure if I harden and plant out or should I keep in pots and put out later in the season. First time I have ever had my own cuttings make plants. Yay!! Scabiosa, coreopsis, geyser and platycodon.
