What to do with an old butler sink any ideas please??

Use it for rockery plants. Make sure the drainage hole is draining and put gravel around the plants.

What to do with this broccoli?

Posted: 25/04/2015 at 09:49

Looks like Purple Sprouting broccoli. Doesn't make dense heads, makes shoots with purple flowers. Pick the shoots and eat them, simmered for a few minutes, add butter. Pick off the flowering shoots, it should make new purple ones.

What a relief about Shadow. Glad it wasn't tick fever.

Is the plant festival in my direction DD? Have you been to the Floralies in Saint Jean de Côle? Think it's 9th 10th May.

Hosta, I noticed that Monty pronounced Knifophia in a way I've never heard of. When I lived in Kent up to 1985 it was pronounce knife o fia, Monty said niff offia. What do others say?

Morning all.

Poured in the night, woke me up. Raining now. Garden needs it, but I hope it clears up, lots more weeding to do.

 Choisya Aztec Pearl. Don't know where titles will end up and my photos usually turn up in the reverse order of how I posted them!

I've started edging the beds but haven't done the ones in these photos yet.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Come in for cup of tea. Have been weeding and edging, nearly finished the middle bed. There is now a big gap in the middle of it. Wonder what was there last year? Must look at photos. At least there is a home waiting for some of the homeless plants.

Must go and re-pot some tomatoes and sort out a cold frame - remove overwintered perennials, weed it (has sand on the floor) and put weed supressing fabric in it. Then I can get some annuals out of the GH to harden off. No frosts forecast for the next week and the CFs have lids anyway.

Good morning Marion.

Loads of bittercress here in France too this year and I've been digging up celandines too. Also watered the broad beans!

Another lovely lot of photos from you, thank you.

Morning all. Cool and foggy here.

Oh, DD, I hope the vet can do something quickly. I always think of tick fever first here, quite common and has symptoms like that. Are his gums pale?

We are off to the DIY place to get something for a roof for the place where we sit in summer, for shade and to keep rain off. Was covered with a vine that has died.
