HELLO FORKERS!

Glad you enjoyed your pootling punkdoc.

i am feeling grotty - temp, sore throat, shivery.  Tomorrow is the first day of my week off work, so feeling particularly aggrieved.  Meant to be going to Hidcote/Kiftsgate tomorrow - need to dig out the day nurse

I'd forgotten just how gorgeous your garden is Bev.  Its put a big smile on my face

Got to get out there today to do all the things i said i would do yesterday - before i got distracted with plant buying.

Good luck to Mr KEFs team at Wembley

When is the last time to sow tomato seeds

How many plants do you need Sarah? If its not very many you might be better buying small plants from a GC - they are not very expensive, and would get you back to where you normally are at this time of year.

Its not me, but OH, who does the hard graft, but much better to build your own - can customise the size etc.  and it makes it all your garden - rather than something you can order.  

Its difficult juggling supernoodle (got the t-shirt) - but worth it 10 years down the road ...

Fairy - great to see it all coming together - borders are looking great 

David - loads of colour - think I have to agree - spring takes some beating for optimism and excitement levels

One shopping spree per weekend is probably enough for me MrsG - but hope you and KEF have a great time.  Eat cake, buy plants and chat ...... a near perfect day

Stacey - wasn't me asking for the GW 10% discount, although OH said we should try!! Never been before - quite bowled over by the acres and acres of plants - thats some operation they have there.  And very pleased with my purchases

 

Really love that stand Panda.

Am hoping you are right - it was a mouse, not a hoe, that decapitated Dr Ruppel - but hoping he will recover
