We seem to have missed the rain too - been glorious all day. Made a good effort on the weeding - reacquainted myself with parts of the beds i haven't seen for ages. In my absence 3 toads had set up residence in the fallen leaves - hope they have been eating slugs for me

Our turn for rain tomorrow - got a few GH jobs to do, but then might have to resort to HW and that thing you do to flatten clothes ......

How about putting a flower bed in the way ? Its not a wall .... But i guess you would still need to check whether it is within the rules.

Just an update from me - plants growing away nicely - will try and meet up with the Camberley man in the next week or two to send them on their way..... Better write some labels for them first

Like Rose, i keep them in pots for the first year so i can keep an eye on them.  But i would not keep them in the GH  - harden them off and then keep them outside for the summer - and bring them back in when the frosts start this autumn.
