Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Sorry to hear that Archiepem.

Was a lovely day. We spent some time this afternoon wrestling with the Star Jasmine (not spelling the Latin name!) I decided to re-pot it when I saw a very big pot in the GC sales a few weeks ago. It is now a lot bigger than me and we had quite a job to get it out of its pot and lift it into the new one. Needed doing as it fell over in the gales and went crooked and I couldn't straighten it. It's climbing up a rose obelisk in the pot.

We often have mini powercuts that messes up the timing and OH keeps putting things on the planner which clash and spoil my recordings.

Help wanted for planters for front garden

Google the plants I've noted and see what you think. If it's 3 feet then that probably isn't enough room for 4 rows.

Campanula Pritchards variety how tall ?

Advice on filling new raised veg bed

Leave it as it is. Most veg like soil that is loose and not compacted.

For the big one you will be a bit limited for colours by the shade. Will you be watering them? Because there is dry shade and damp shade which can suit different types of plants. In shade it can help to have foliage shape texture and colour. Plants - Hostas, Astilbe, Brunnera "Jack Frost", Pulmonarias, hardy Fuchsia such as "Lena", Epimediums, Heucheras, Primulas, Astrantia, some of the hardy geraniums.
