Chicky, please would you explain about brambles, SBK and pipecleaners.

Couldn't the wallflowers wait until they don't look good?

OH has weeded the Herb Robert out of the irises  First time I've known him do weeding!

Been planting the GH tomatoes and weeding the onions. But just walked around the garden with OH and the weeds in the long border are horrendous, full of goosegrass. I did it a bit over a month ago.

Lily  hope he doesn't come out in a rash! We are going to Sicily in September.

That sounds an unusual move, hope it goes well.

My cold is feeling better today. Relief, as tomorrow I fly to Bristol to stay with Matty for the Malvern Spring Show.

Your raised bed is looking lovely Chicky.

I'm feeling I'm in a losing battle with weeds! Wishing garden was smaller, that pic is part of it. Not as young as I was when we planned it over 20 years ago! And I've added bits since.

Probably. Aidan Turner's bread and butter.

Been in veggie garden, weeding and planting, may have said already. I have a cold and nose blowing with muddy gloves on isn't practical. Going to change and make a chicken stir fry.

Just as RB, if not more so. But he was wounded some of the time so that bit was more along the lines of pale and interesting.

If it's nice and rotted, dark and not smelly, then dig it in a bit and you can grow anything except carrots and parsnips as it makes them fork.

Someone on TV, was it Monty, cut the growbags in half then stood them on their ends so it was deeper.

Runnybeak, we watched The Hobbit part 2 DVD last night, then my heart missed a beat. There was this really good looking chap I thought I recognised. Poldark!
