Garden programme on Sky 1

Posted: 25/01/2015 at 22:15

Just caught up with the programme MT - loved their garden - what an idyllic spot they have made.  By far and away my favourite too 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Good luck Mrs G  Hope all goes well, and no further encouragement is needed

I wish someone would invent....

I use Ethel Gloves - they're the only ones my fingernails don't wear through after a couple of wears.  Usually last me about six months - used pretty much every weekend.

 

the other trick I use is to clean the bathroom on a sunday evening - that seems to shift the dirt

A vote for Polka here too - first time we have ever grown raspberries, and we loved them

Submitted my bird count.  Woodpecker and chaffinches missing this year, which makes me wonder last time I saw them?? Hope we have not lost them

Then went for another long walk - feet buzzing now.  But it was still light at nearly 5 o'clock - yippee. Watched half of Allotment Challenge last night, about to catch up with the last bit now.

Hope Beaus packing is now sorted - good luck with the move (i'm guessing absence of internet at new abode means you could be missing for a while ..... we'll be thinking of you in that sea of boxes and bubblewrap)

Potted up some hellebore plug plants, had a furtle round the GH and got rid of some moss round my pulmonaria.  Glad I did because it meant I noticed one of them is starting to flower

And Fidget - you'll be pleased to hear that Molly-in-a-bucket has thrown up new shoots.....very exciting

Great garden Beaus - love the arch and the pond - plus loads of room for you to make your mark.....what fun

Happy Birthday DD.  

just been for a lovely long walk - now feet up and a cuppa. Might watch Wolf Hall on iPlayer as everyone is raving and I missed it.  On taxi duty later so will treat this early bit of the evening as if it were the real thing
