Anybody watching The Big Allotment Challenge

I started watching with scepticism - but i actually really enjoyed it!  Something a bit different

Must choose my words more carefully - nearly had special branch on their way round

Love the tulips and that white daffodil Bob - is it Thalia?

My long anticipated tulips are finally flowering, and are well worth the wait

Glad you are having such a lovely time Bev - a move to Devon sounds like a fun plan

Glad KEF can now eat anything she wants, the chewier the better.

thanks for all your get well wishes.  Although i thought i felt better, i think i was in denial (i am soooo not good at being under the weather) - soon after inadvertantly accusing Tracey of stealing ( Sorry, must choose my words more carefully), i put my head down for 40 winks, and woke up half an hour ago.  So that's that day gone

Just been to look at my tulips to cheer myself up - they are called Ballade, and have more than lived up to expectations .... Love them

OL - when i said "not lifted straight from a GC shelf" I meant the sinks, not the plants.

They have made real features Tracey - i love it when a garden is full of things that the gardener has put together, rather than just lifted straight from a GC shelf.  Might be a bargain, but it looks classy

Do you really need special seed compost?

Hi Laura - i have just bumped a couple of threads that discuss this to the top of the forum for you - hope they help
