Hmm - getting better but still not right. 

I'll stop talking to myself now in case you all think I'm barking mad!! But I might come back & have another play later on.

Modern Gardens to visit in Yorkshire?

Posted: Yesterday at 08:38

Hi, have you considered contacting the Yorkshire Tourist  Information Centre? They may know of properties who 'open by appointment' in different areas of Yorkshire.

preparing ground

I know what you mean Mozey, however it does depend on what you intend to do: dig to plant now or prepare plot then plant next year.

I decided on my new plot to dig and plant potatos, sweet corn, runner beans and now I'm going with David's advice to rough dig to over-winter plan what to grow in the spring. It suits me, I dont have much time at the moment as am getting the house garden sorted out first.







Shabby Chic Anyone?

Yviestevie, I'm not usually a pansy fan but yours look so lovely in those containers, I'm getting some to pot on and use as fillers for any bare spots    photos to come when rain stops.

Thanks Gardengirl,  

I  usually catch-up on a Sunday morning, also they produce fact sheets on each topic covered that week. If time is short I download one of interest. 

Fruitcake, like you fankness  agree, but can usually find something useful and it's a relaxing hour.

  and how lovely to share it with all of your friends, Marion. 

Looked like the conference was a success. It is good to talk with like-minded people, as you say invigorating   

Interesting that your garden is of 'three seasons', such colour! the neighbours nasturnums are certainly blooming well.

Visited Malvern Autum Show yesterday, never know what to look at first   .  Picton Gardens, which I visited last month, had stunning displays of asters - won silver gilt. Must visit again as their garden will have even more colour now the asters are at their best.

Bulb planting this week, ground very dry having to use water to soften it a little. Love the quiet satisfaction of the preparation for Spring  whilst enjoying the colours of Autumn

Thanks for the info re Blueberries MelM , just what I needed to know 

Good to see photos GWRS and Gardengirl, all looking productive.

Hi, Chunk  plots here, Herefordshire, are £50 a year full size, £25 half.

Spent time on Saturday on my plot (think you know I'm sharing one but hope to get it proper next year), mostly chatting to others there, no photos as too many folk about. Checking out a cutting bed size already turned soil over, need more compost.

Watched Beechgrove for the comments on the cutting bed - encouraging. The 'hot bed' was interesting, must look back for fact sheet to see what they did.
