Anyone done any gardening today?

I have plastic planters around the swimming pool, but elsewhere there are different sorts, stone, terracotta, resin etc. The only wooden one I had fell apart after some years, upsetting the clematis that was in it.

Here's another one I have just planted up, not plastic.

 Have been weeding and planting out little spring bedding plants.

 

I've been outside most of the day. Have spread the old mowings pile, the old leaf pile and a bin full of homemade compost, all mixed up, onto the long border.

Don't forget to let us know if Ma likes it, Dove.

I've been in the garden most of the day. Shall now go to the gardening thread. May post the odd photo, don't expect too much!

I was prescribed iron tablets years ago when I was pregnant. I had fainted in Church and the doctor thought I was anaemic. But I felt so rotten on them I had to stop taking them. Turned out I have a naturally low blood pressure which went even lower when pregnant.

You could cut back a couple of the oldest stems, 8 is a good number.

The Daily Telegraph and their readers agree with me that Helen and Georgia should not have been in the dance off and Anita should have gone. The judges thought that too. there has also been talk that the programme is rigged.

Rose Arch Collapsed

I agree, best to hard prune it, then it won't get wind rock and it will be easier when you want to erect the new arch and re-train it. It will grow again. Better for it to happen now than in summer.

Tetley, Arthur's post was written in July 2013 and he hasn't posted anything since August 2015. I welcomed him too in 2014, not realising the date!

Morning all. Was thinking of going Christmas shopping but it's a lovely day, would it be better spent in the garden? 9 grandchildren to buy pressies for.
