Thanks Chicky. They aren't all out yet, those are early ones.

HELLO FORKERS!

Evening all. I've been out all day, an annual meeting with lunch then went to see son as his baby son has started crawling. More like a caterpillar really! Cute.

Out tomorrow too, going to OH's Choir's lunch party.

My agastache, Blue Boa and Black Adder were bought in pots last autumn. They looked fine. I re-potted them and put them in a cold frame for winter. Black Adder is growing, but nothing is happening in Blue Boa's pot.

My photos never turn up in the order I post them! And when I type something I never know where that will be either

Anyone done any gardening today?

Thank you everyone. No time for gardening today, an AGM then visit to son, tomorrow out to OH's choir's lunch party.

My son and DIL had a pond next to their previous house. They had to change to the spare bedroom until July because of the noise the frogs made!

 Nine more to go and that's one of the smaller ones.

Finished potting up the over 300 plug plants that arrived yesterday. Sowed lettuces, borage and dill. Then went and finished the end bed that I was weeding and edging in the flower garden. Planted Helianthus "Happy Days", Geum "Borisii, a day lily, Salvia "Hot Lips" and some blue and yellow pansies.

Before and after.

Is that Dordogne Damsel, or another DD?

Morning all. Another lovely day, but the sky has some clouds. Warmer this morning, was 5° in the night instead of 1°.

Thought I'd finished potting all my plug plants, then realised a box of Zinnia Profusion "Fire" was missing, just found it in the rubbish. Nearly threw it away with the boxes!

Yvie, my Blue Boa isn't up yet either.

Verdun, you must have more than 1 pair of pants and there is such a thing as hand washing! yuk!

Good morning Marion. I'm glad you had a good evening, I love "South Pacific".

I think that daisy has a fasciation, still pretty though.

 

Homemade compost full of seeds / weeds

Posted: 09/04/2015 at 23:21

Last year I had loads of baby tomatoes growing in a flower bed! I'd put rotten tomatoes in the compost. I also had a butternut squash growing on the compost heap that I hadn't sown.
