Finally finished mulching one of my borders ..... One more to go, but we have run out of muck.

 That was a fair few wheelbarrows full  And I have finally got my cosmos seeds going too.  Time for a cuppa (and possibly a snooze)

Verdun - when you talk about feeding with FBB, do you just sprinkle round a handful and then tickle it in?  And how many times a year??

Seem to remember wittering on here about my hyacinths last weekend.  Here are the same bulbs grown indoors last year, and then planted in the garden. Can't believe the colour difference

Morning.  Hectic work week over, so can turn my thoughts to the garden  Weather not looking great, but I have lots I can do in the GH.  Don't mind at all that we lose an hour's sleep tonight .....it means it will finally still be daylight when I make it home from work.....and that makes such a difference

Glad to see you have all been busy with spades or paint pads

Take it easy Dove - Lesley is so right.  Look after yourself ((hugs))
