My only worry is the wind. They may catch it bad. I wash happy indeed and threw me!i do mowing and digging etc, but not going to stop this enthusiasm.

I also have 3 bags of sand sat next to the raised bed as apparently he wants to grow some giant flakkee carrots!

Also he was telling me last night that he has found the raised bed idea for the front of the house. Wait for it.... Tractor tyres!!!!

No way!!!!! That will look v odd and weird at the front!!! I was thinking oak sleepers and willow fence not tractor tyres!!!!

I left my boyfriend unattended today! He and the dog seemed to get a bright idea and now I have 2 arches in my tiny back garden and new guttering and Waterbutt (unfinished!) Apparently the arch near the veg bed if for our climbing French beans and the green arch near the lawn and boarders is for sweet peas. Didn't have the heart to tell him I'm about a month off planting any if those. Take a look and let me know what you think... http://twitter.com/Inky_Trace/status/317412777503379456/photo/1

And I'm right in thinking if my seeds germinate well that I don't need to do any more in 2 weeks?!

Been practicing on my paper pots. Got some reduced bulbs in 8 to see if they sprout, if so out in the garden they will go, just unsure of if I should put one or 2 seeds per pot? 2 then snip off the weakest???

Sweet peas that my mum gave me tonight, that she commandeered from a holiday cottage as a Norfolk souvenir, another happy thought for my garden. They will go 3 at a time in my paper pots Tom. I said I was going to the shed for 5 mins and my other half said no! He said Monty D has a lot to answer for!!!!

Aldi garden stuff

I bought some cutting and seed compost from aldi and it is lovely dark smooth stuff and was so do much cheaper than the John innes stuff a d to be honest I can't tell the difference. Just because I didn't want catching out I mixed it with the John innes and added vermiculite and its poised ready to go!!

Also do you sow in trays or pots, really am a novice here. The dahlia and the marigold I will do in trays then pot on.
