The RHS has partner gardens, which let RHS members in free for certain months of the year.  If you search for "partner gardens" on the RHS website there is a list of all the gardens and the months they partcipate.

I always carry my RHS card round with me on the off-chance

Pulmonarias are lovely for early in the year - there is a white one called sissinghurst.  I have opal, which is a lovely pale blue - started flowering in January, and still going strong now.  The variegated leaves are nice when its not flowering too.

Had a lazy day til about 6 when I finally managed to build up the enthusiasm to do something productive with the day.  So have spent the last hour or so planting recent purchases, feeding pots and getting everything ready for the pricking out session that WILL happen tomorrow.  And now I feel ready for another snooze.  Need to find a DD tonic from somewhere.

Mane taming went fine - everyone still seems to recognse me

Morning all  just off for a bit of mane taming, and need to pop in to the GC on the way

Not sure about a week of rain in the forecast here, more like a week of frosts (although we seem to have escaped this morning).  No matter, the last lot of seedlings are getting pricked out today regardless, will just have to fleece them overnight.  Other task for the weekend is go round and give everything a new feed, and pot up a new planter of sempervirums. And plant out a few other things that have been growing on over the winter too.  I have a whole crop of Kefidget delphiniums to go out there
