OH is out, so time for gardening TV catchup

OL - here are my 48 free lavenders - last years in the pots (could have been potted on by now but i've been tardy), and the previous years in the garden in groups of 7.  I think they are well worth it, and will have another go this year - if i don't use them they always go well at plant sales

 Think i have pond envy....... And alpine envy .........

What lovely clean stones - not a welly footprint in sight.  Wish my WiP's looked as good as that !  We favour the bombsite look (for many, many months) followed by the big reveal  OH has watched too many makeover shows ......

Morning all!

Impressive plant list Lizzie.  I have given up growing my own salvia farinacea from seed - i can't get them to flower before end August.  But you have reminded me I need to get to the GC to get them as bedding plants that I can bring on in the GH til June.  Deer don't eat them, so they form the backbone of my patio pots, along with isotoma.

Let us know how the alpine plans progress Woody.

Misty here - but that keeps the frost at bay.  Still forecasting the icy stuff from Friday night onwards, so have my GH defences at the ready
