Evening all - its the weekend - yippee!  Got some violas to plant out tomorrow - if i am getting my trowel out for the primroses then may as well make it worthwhile

Welcome back Fairy - hope you have zapped your stuff for the time being.  How is the extension plan coming along ??

We live in a pretty rural spot on the edge of woodland. And though we see lots of wildlife we have never seen a hedgehog - despite numerous strategic log piles for them to call home. Someone said that you don't get hedgehogs where there are badgers - does anyone know if that is true?
Jealous of your visitor Lavande - pictures would be lovely!

Tracey - the "trial and error" method works for me (in fact i am still practising it!) - in the first year try a bit of everything, work out what does well, and then plant lots more of it !  My "do well" border plant is phlox .... But i am adding others to the list
