Sorry Brumball...realise I'm mixing the threads...and many thanks for your early morning greetings..they have brightened the dimmest, coldest mornings ever...

Good morning  grey skies and that wind feels colder.

In the garden all day yesterday...sunshine, and a nice sunset...got all sorts of odd jobs sorted out ...that extra hour makes a big difference.

 morning...beautiful photos.. good to see such lovely colours!

-Lizzie, had problems myself with blind daffs and tulips. One cause can be compacted soil, so when they die down, lift, fork over the soils add fertiliser and re-plant into the looser soil. It worked for some of mine...others I think I planted back too deeply.

The tulips I potted and forgot about...to my surprise found them with four inches growth... hope they flower.

Welcome to the potting shed

 Rosa, Hi, your method is the way i usually do it but as i want to plant soon(ish) i think that 'burying' the compost will suit better this time paticularly as it is a full lenth border.Will avoid disturbing the soil again for other plantings.

Hello Barbara  

good morning, browsing for ngs gardens, saw this thread and just popped in..

goeff love your easter names... laughing out loud...such wit! your'e setting a high standard for the weekend.

 

nutcutlet..agree about gardens..I'm awed by the dedication and effort given to such a standard for showing. Herefordshire has a good selection too and June/ July brings the counties villages open gardens days - always inspirational. 

Sun shining here ... on with the day..enjoy yours whatever you are doing.
