Lots done there MrsG - now you're all ready for spring.  Whats the plan for your new planting space??

rain and wind now swept in here, but not before I mad a good attempt at cutting back old stems in the borders.  Now looks much better.....weeding and mulching next  Loads of new shoots sprouting away already - they don't seem to mind the daily frosts.  Think I might curl up with a book now

Ours are 7 years old now and never had anything done to them.  Only ever use water and washing up liquid to clean them .  Microfibre cloths for buffing them up were a real find about a year ago - gets them sparkling in no time

Deep frost here, so my big gardening day will have to wait til it thaws a bit.  Rain forecast this afternoon, so might not fit much in after all.  My borders are in desperate need of a cut down and tidy up (yes, I know I am very late with this) and I am beginning to feel I'm playing catcth up already.....and its only February.  Will prioritise my Group 3 clematis, and then take it from there.

Hope poorly, bunged up, coughy peeps are soon on the mend

Morning

sun is shining (no snow in this part of surrey) and have already been out to see whats growing.  Signs of my new daffs, the new hellebores that I thought had died might actually have shoots (if not flowers) after all, my snowdrops are lovely and the whole place smells of daphne.  Came back in cold but grinning.

lesley - sprouting seeds are lupins and foxgloves - 5more trays yet to show signs of life, but it has only been 6 days.
