Morning all been in the garden since 6.30 and hung out 2 load of washing for the wife as she's working. Chelsea has made me think about putting in one maybe two feature's that break up the garden Verdun plants i liked to many but will get a few as i build my garden up. After my tea & toast it's out to steam clean the patio then build the two planter's i need one for front & back garden's  done a bit of weeding last night so it's good find it easier doing a little each day as letting it build up to much. So am off back out have a good day in the garden or whatever your doing today.

Thanks Verdun it's in a large pot in the greenhouse been putting it outside for the last few weeks think i might just keep it in the pot and move it around the garden do you think that would be alright. The GC very busy and am back with no money bought compost ,grow bags,and from bargain corner i got a Helleborus Walbertons Rosemary £6 and a Fritillaria William Rex £4 and treated the family to a new patio set hope to get plenty of sun this summer which was in the sale at £250 very happy with my shopping spree. Now waiting on wife coming in from work then do a food shopping so it leaves me the next 3 days for gardening as plenty to do.

Just had my tea & toast now going to my local GC they are doing levington tomato grow bags for £2.99 each and 3x60L of compost for £12 need a good few of each and have a look at the bargain corner as i always do. Then back home and into the garden got to add more soil to my tatties get tomatoes in the grow bags. Maybe today if not tomorrow plant my mum's ,primula vialii's,pennisetum fireworks,marigold's, aster's in my front garden.
