Hope it works better this time, Chicky. Must be very worrying and mentally draining for you.

I've spent some time today in the GH. Now have about 520 babies potted up, counting the plug plants that I'd already done.

I've been in the GH potting up my home grown seeds, Lobelia, Isotoma, Penstemons, Petunias, Antirrhinums, Cosmos, Ageratum and some tomatoes. Together with the plug plant delivery I think I have 520 babies.

Gosh, Gardener's Boy, will you be opening your garden to the public when it's done?

Morning all.
Forgot to record GW last night while I was at the concert. But we are going to Norfolk on Monday so I can watch it on iPlayer.

The orchestra ate all the sandwiches I made. 32 rounds.

OH is singing in the 2nd night concert tonight in another town but I'm not going again. Must pot on my babies in the greenhouse before we go away. Glad we have the good housesitter. He says he will weed the rest of the veg garden while we are away.

Have made 31 rounds of sandwiches and fed OH who has gone off to practice before concert. Don't like making sandwiches would much rather be in the GH pricking out seedlings.

Hosta, if he didn't play the beautiful game he might well be on the street aggressing people.

Feels chilly here too. I'm making sandwiches for 30 orchestra members for concert that OH is singing in tonight.

Have taken the rotavator to be repaired.

Good point, Richard. When Fishy said 14" wide I was imagining it narrowing to the top, which is why I thought clematis rather than rose.

Morning all.
Glad Ma is so well looked after.

If it's the little town I think it is then my grandparents retired there. Grandpa died at home, aged 72, after a heart attack, I was 4 and went to stay. I remember taking him his medicine, Granny had him moved to the study, I remember sitting on the blue candlewick bedspread and talking to him while I drew pictures. His uncle and his grandfather were both Mayors of Norwich and Gilman Street in Norwich is named after them. Granny stayed in that town by the sea and we used to go every year on holiday when I was a child.

What is your weather like?

Really pouring now, BBC 2's picture keeps breaking up.
