Today's dilemma

I have 2 long troughs I put bedding plants in and I may use them then I can hide them away or move with the weather. I do like his new enthusiasm.

I daren't squish him as I have been nagging him to take an interest and he really has been bargain sporting. No doubt I can use them and trade with someone. I'm thinking the barrow will look awesome with hostas in for summer and make some height at the back of Hosta ally!!

Back to work on tues so that's when the random gestures will slow! He looked like a proud puppy I can't help but say thankyou and smile inside.

Could put onions in the barrow but somehow feels like a waste. Was going to split my hostas. Maybe put some hostas in. I'm but thrown and lost by this one! It's about 2.5ft x3ft and 1 ft to 1.5 ft deep!

Afternoon all. Well again after a trip to the stables I get home to another challenge/suprise that the boyfriend has decided to join in my gardening hobby! Not only do I have 500 g of onion sets for 1.15 on bargain price from aldi. I do not have a clue where to plant these! My raised bed is all due to be taken. So my only option is to put them in my flower beds, I wanted to fill the spaces with bedding plants not onions!! Any ideas? How much room do they need, will they grow ok if plants flop over them when indeed they grow! But the next challenge is a wheelbarrow. It was on the side of the road so he knocked on the door and asked for it. It's an old fashioned heavy envelope sided one. Concrete type wheel. It's handled are rusty and rotted through but he salvaged it so I could plant it up at the front! Any ideas what to put in it. Do you think I will have to use just bedding plants and change over winter and summer!!
