Anyone done any gardening today?

Planted the pots, including some herbs, on the kitchen terrace. That's all the pots done now. Have quite a lot of rather tatty looking petunias left over.

HELLO FORKERS!

Housework this morning, planting pots on kitchen terrace this afternoon and talking to the plumbers in between. They've nearly finished. Coming back to re-connect an outside tap tomorrow. Was going to do some watering on the flower garden side but it's that tap. Also used for filling horses' water so very important.

Re my post yesterday "2 men came to read the water meter and they said I will have a big bill as there is a leak. Can't find it, must be under the concrete floor in the corridor to the boiler room where the water comes in to the house. Plumber coming tomorrow."

Plumber has come, confirmed leak. Going to put in above ground poly wotsit pipe and cut off old copper underground pipe.

Well done Womble!

I've been planting annuals among the perennials in the middle bed. Also planted around the sundial and nipped all the tops off the broad beans as the blackfly are starting.

Morning all.

I'm sure it will be fine DD. When one plant has peaked another comes out. So much has come out since my Open Day I'm wondering if it was too soon. Lots of big red poppies now and the Sweet Williams and hardy geraniums are all coming out.

Glad about your Mum, Lesley. Somehow I missed that.

Katherine, do you mean real live ducks? What sort? I used to keep ducks, great characters, but don't let them near your veg garden!

runner bean seeds

Logan, I haven't tried Moonlight. Does it mind hot summers and does it taste like a real runner bean not a French bean?

Chicky, they are autumn sown Sweet Peas, been in a cold frame all winter before planting out.

Dahlia "Bishop of Landaff" isn't hardy here and now they don't sell it any more in the GC so I've lost my three. But the "Bishop's Children" that I sowed from seed are hardy, so is Dahlia "Park Princess", "Arabian Nights" and "Pooh".

I've been mending electric fences, putting horses in a new paddock (happy bunnies) and planting out pots and troughs.

What on earth is that, Mrs. G? Looks like a fungus or a particularly revolting giant slug!
