It was me planting bulbs - and they are now all in.  So lovely to have a day in the garden at last

When i had finished pottering i went for a long walk - everything looking lovely in the late afternoon sun

Love my felcos - expensive, but i have had mine years.

New allotment OMG...

How exciting .  Never had an allotment so can't give first hand advice, but i would certainly ask other plot holders - it will be good to get some advice, but also to make some friends

When to take off the propagator lid?

Posted: 19/01/2014 at 10:23

I open the lid vents as soon as i see sprouts, but leave the lid on (with my fingers crossed) for a few more days for the benefit of the seeds that might be late starters.  I know i risk damping off that way, but so far it has never happened 

Gloating!

Tracey - i would consider that remark a seal of approval 

No compost reviews at B&Q

Funny that Which? rated Verve highly, and yet loads here have had problems with it.  I must admit i don't trust their reviews anymore - had bad experiences with a washer and a vacuum recommended by them too

Lovely day in prospect here.  Bird feeders now all sparkly clean and ready to go back out.  Have registered for the bird watch/count next weekend.

my indoor hyacinths, planted early November are starting to come out too - very pretty blue.

Gloating!

I've bought snowdrops and cyclamen from eurobulbs before, and was very pleased with them.  Keep an eye open for offers in newspapers and magazines too - they often  have "free" (ie pay p&p only) ones on offer in jan/feb
