loved watching your wee garden transform just shows you that when you spend time and make an effort it pays off, im new to this gardening thing aswell used to hate it lol! until i fell pregnant with our wee one and now i love growing everything from seed as much as possible i think its a great idea to grow flowers and vegetables equally as it will interest your little one and getting them into the whole growing your own thing lol. our little one loves to help and i think its great to get them into something like this. i see that you mentioned about pallets earlier in your posts have you ever thght about treating them with wood stainer or paint? and securing the bottom and sides with plastic sheeting and puttin several drainage holes through out that way if u plan on growing vegetables or salads etc u can sow them in between the slats and they will be kept neat and tidy also if u secure the pallet correctly with the sheeting and ofcourse with alittle help u can move the pallet to where ever needed in tthe garden and still have fresh crops etc that way u have the choice of choosing something different each time

hi was just wondering if anyone has this ground covering plant in their garden? and whether it is just the purple colouring you can get or if there are any other colours avaliable? me and my partner are going to be doing a stepping stone effect down at the bottom of our garden and was thinking this would be a lovely neutral plant to put in between the gaps any suggestions/ feed back welcome xx
