To Grit or not to Grit- that is the question

Have wondered that myself. I suppose it depends if the plants you are putting in them like well drained or moist soil. I've stopped putting drainage in the bottom of pots, just a bit of tile or old flowerpot over drainage holes to stop them blocking up. Here in SW France it gets too hot and dry in summer, plant saucers are of more use.

Yesterday I finished weeding the lower middle bed and planted the rest of the Bellis daisies. Pruned one rose. Got in 5 barrows of logs.

Today it is raining. Glad OH mowed the lawn the other day, it's squelching today.

Kathy, what a lovely garden and what gorgeous hellebores! It reflects all that you've put into it.

Hello Shirley. I found that I didn't get the GW mag straight away, there was a month's gap. So you would probably get the April one. But I could be wrong as I live in France. The May one is a good one as it has a card for half price garden visiting.

That was lucky, Liri. Sleeping in airports isn't much fun. Hope you had a good time despite the weather.

Eventually got into the garden and did some weeding, but did stack 5 barrows of logs under the stairs for the woodburner first. I always feel lazy if I haven't been outside and done something, but in winter it's often impossible.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabbit_rabbit_rabbit  -  but it says the origin is unknown. I was brought up in Surrey and we did the same as sg lily.

Grey and cold, forecast yesterday said sun, now it says cloud. Not inviting outside to go a prune.

Can anyone recommend a Jamine for me?
