Why will I want to wipe it off next year? Used for long stay perennials and shrubs.

Such a cute under gardener, Wintersong. Your garden is looking lovely.

Here are some roses I took pics of last night.

Good news Liri

Lovely day here, 23°. Been cleaning garden furniture for my charity Strawberry Tea on Saturday.

Also went to Supermarket, bought lots of dog food as we are going to New York next week. Housesitter coming. OH's choir has been invited to sing in Carnegie Hall.

OH has been in England, he's now on a train, I must go and pick him up soon.

It's my birthday

I like pricking out and  potting on in the greenhouse on cool days and planting in the flower beds, best. To do with being involved in the garden, but not actual work, I like wandering around sniffing the scent of the flowers, especially roses.

I use pencil to write on white plastic labels, 2B, long lasting. But this year I found a web site with black labels and a white paint pen, reasonable price, so I'm giving them a go for plants in the borders. Looks quite pro!

Rudbeckia - Cherry Brandy

Well, I'm not growing them again. Poor germination, poor growth, dull dusky red flowers and they all died in the winter. But it was -8° a few times.

This year I'm trying Zinnia Profusion Cherry which are already starting to flower, bought as plug plants.

Which markers?

re-using compost in containers

I would use it again for radishes. When used for bedding plants I change the top 6 inches and give long lasting fertiliser pellets. But radishes don't need a rich soil or they grow lots of leaf at the expense of radish. But I don't know how often you can do it.
