I think nutcutlet is right. Monty just used the tool but he didn't say what make it was, or show a label. I don't think he would have been paid extra for that. Hard to make a gardening programme without showing any garden tools.

Glad it was a successful day Chicky.

Finished putting gravel around the shed, looks a lot neater. Emptied 4 troughs and 3 pots of summer bedding and added some new compost, ready for pansies, violas and wallflowers. Lots more to do though. Sowed sweet peas.

Going to new restaurant after church tomorrow in the village where church is. Run by a young couple. Quite a few of us are going.

I think there was a thread about bulb planters before. My OH bought me one last year and it was a great help planting daffodils. He found it on the internet. But the earth (clay) was hard to get out. OH found a metal parasol stand and I pushed the earth out with that. Worked a treat.

I agree with everything you just said, David. But I'm afraid I could have done without Donny Osmond.

Sometimes it's because of the weather, but apart from that, sorry, I don't know.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 21:29

Have sown my sweet peas, in loo roll middles stood up in a window box full of compost. The window box is not outside the window! It's just that it was the right size.

Glad you had a good time and rain didn't spoil it. Looking forward to photos.

What do you do with soil from plant pots?

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 09:55

I throw it on the veggie garden. Used to be clay but years of compost and manure have made it workable.

Good morning all. I hope the TWIGS have a lovely outing. Enjoy Plymouth Chicky.

KEF, I haven't had time to be lonely yet! Was on the phone a lot yesterday, including 2 hours chatting to daughter. Then I went out for meal with friends last night. Drizzled all day. Hope it cheers up today as have things to do outside.

Gardening Christmas Present

Dove, I didn't mean the very expensive one! Or even the second most expensive, can't see why they are those prices.

This is my OH's one. He likes it because you can put things, like secateurs in it.
