My evening last night - if I didn't laugh I'd have cried!

Veggiepatch, there was one good thing - the powercut didn't start when you were in the bath with the water draining away! Hope today is better.

Asparagus

Asparagus is pretty hardy, you normally plant it as one year crowns in the autumn, but I imagine you have grown it from seed. When I grew asparagus it used to seed itself sometimes and the babies survived the winter outside.

Here the GC sells leeks for planting out in June.

Morning all. Up late as out last night. My daffodils are well over and tulips are almost over, but hard to plant anything yet as leaves all over the place. But I often plant dahlias between daffodils and they usually survive the winter in the ground. I plant snowdrops all around the hostas then the hosta leaves hide the dying snowdrop leaves.

Hello all and welcome Rosie. I've arrived a bit late. OH was singing in a concert with his choir so I went to watch and there was a supper afterwards. I was invited, well I had made 2 cakes for it.

Rosie, if you ask the right questions (the ones I know the answers to!) I may be able to answer! I've been gardening for around 40 years but been in Dordogne over half that time, so don't ask me when the last frost is!

Hi Bev! We were staying in Eastbourne so we drove through more than once, went to Alfriston and Lewes. I thought of you and your pretty window boxes. The day we went to the GC it was pouring with rain so we left before I'd finished looking. We'll be back 2nd half of June and hopefully do some garden visiting.

new border for boring garden

Well done! So much more interesting now.  What about putting some trellis or wires on the fence and growing a clematis? Or is there something climbing there already. There is a problem with this site at the moment for posting photos so they are smaller than they used to be.
