Happy ending Tbird

Did my plant shopping, but didn't quite have enough energy to plant them all .....a job for tomorrow.

Spent the afternoon in my hammock instead

Oh dear, I had no intention of starting a Monty bashing session. Must be more careful with what I post

Love the sign - I'm pretty sure it was  Topbird who came up with the name too

Sounds like plans are coming together ....when do you plan to open?  Its all very exciting 

Lots of good suggestions from Chrissie on bunting - try googling how to make bunting for other hints and tips.

Morning  Beautiful day out there

Need to go shopping for container plants (never managed it mid-week) - trailing lobelia and other froth.  Then will plant up my summer pots and get my latest secret garden delivery in the ground (some thalictrum and some salvia .....all a bargain, and such fantastic quality plants)

See Monty has hit the headlines banging the drum for independent nurseries vs supermarket plant sales.  I was amazed, and slightly disturbed, that 40% of people now buy their plants from supermarkets 

Tomato Plant

Tomatoes do need direct sunlight - I wouldn't move them into the shade.  The curly leaf is just the way they sometimes grow - its not a problem, and as Lyn says, the older the leaves are, the more they grow out of it.
