Good idea about the bulbplanter - must remember that !

Mine get blocked - not by scale but by bits of debris. If you let it dry out completely you can shake it all out of the end that joins the spout - with a bit of patience

What a coincidence - i was thinking exactly the same - not sure whether to Alternate, or do blocks of each, or just keep the varieties very separate. Will be watching answers with interest

Good luck Marion ! Would love to see your garden on the screen. And Nut - you should give it a go - its not weeds, its wild !

And Berghill, and Punkdoc, and Verdun - throw your hats into the ring ! Would suggest Lizzie too, but guess the title excludes her

Neglected flower beds

I would get rid of the moss if you can. And mulch should be ok over yet to emerge plants at this time of year. They say to mulch round plants, rather than over them, to stop the crowns rotting- but i would think that would be less of a problem at this time of year. You might also discover emerging perennials when you strip off the moss - it forms quite a thick mat.

Time to get busy!

Lily, you're right, it seemed strange for the alarm clock to be going off in the dark again.  Work for me, but taking the train, so will probably pop back in later

Rootrainers, are they worth it

This is my first year of using them, so can't comment on durability yet.  But the inside of old loo rolls do the trick too, and you plant the whole thing.
