So pleased it all went well DD - looking forward to the pics.  I still think it s an incredibly brave thing to do .....but I love wandering round other people's gardens, so I am so glad there are some brave people out there.  Now its time to relax (.......as if)


Turning in now - need to be in London for 8.30, so might catch you all on the train tomorrow morning๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚

Obelixx - those patchworks are exquisite - what an eye for colour and patterns you have.  And you can certainly get your points to meet now


Waved goodbye to Dad, and now having a quiet afternoon.  Should be potting stuff on, but I just can't be @@@ed.  Not often I just slump


Glad to hear DD had lots of visitors, and looking forward to our virtual tour


Have a safe journey to Cheshire Lesley.

Prick them out and pot them on several times, without going for a too big pot too soon.  That normaly sees things grow like the clappers.


What are you trying to grow?  And inside, in a GH or outside?

Rain here too - but welcome. At least its not wild weather, just the gentle soaking stuff at the moment.


My sister is coming today to take Dad to hers.....for the next week of recovery.  After that I think he'll be ready to go home, although he'll have to rely on friends and taxis for lifts, as I don't think his foot will be ready for driving this side of August.


Might get some potting on done later - I can work in the GH if the rain is still here.


Have a good day folks

Had asparagus, Emma, but nowt else yet.  Unless you count mint, chives, sage and rosemary.  But there are new flowers appearing every day, which is unbelievably exciting.   No wonder they say gardening is good for you - can't believe other people miss out on such an exuberant time of year

Oh yes - I remember jacks. Something about throwing the little ball in the air and then picking up the jacks before you catch the ball again .......hours of fun. You can tell I was raised in the days before Nintendo .....and still only 27 at that

Sadly, I would have expected them to be shooting by now ......I'd risk a little furtle by one of them to see what is happening

What would you plant here?

Posted: 11/06/2016 at 20:53

They are quite easy ....so nice big hole, with the sides loosened with a fork, and maybe some blood fish and bone mixed in.  If you are going to plant it now, then the most important thing is to give it a bucket of water every week for this summer - after that it should look after itself
