Planting out lavender

Posted: 18/08/2014 at 07:16

A quick question for those who brought plug plants last year. Could anyone tell me how big theirs are now? I'm wondering if mine (brought this year) will be too bring come June 2016 to use as table decorations?

Close to freezing? Where are you Beckie?? I know my chillies have really slowed down in the cooler weather but I'm not ready to be bubble wrapping plants just yet!

Non gardener - by recycled drinks they mean fluid that has passed through your body.

That's a grand looking picnic Dove!

Hospital this morning then another joyous week at work! I think I'm slowly starting to turn a corner and things are getting done

Slightly Dove but judging by the snoring OH has it now - hope he's okay for wedding duties today!

We have my bosses puppy with us too, just been for a stroll around the garden - the chillies have slowed down with this cooler wet weather but the grasses must be enjoying the rain they're shooting up.

Morning all.

Good point KEF. Bit early for breakfast though?

It can? Wow! Unfortunately dairy is on the "limit" list so is already mostly missing from my diet aside from a few mugs of tea at the moment.  Best teach the new boss the art of herbal tea!

Morning all. Getting better slowly though I'm wondering what the limits on how much snot you can actually produce is? Nose nice and red for Saturdays wedding but the barn they're holding it in was 2ft under water last night so I don't think they'll worry too much. Looks like my little Landy will be on car park duty as well as getting the groom (their request) to the registry office!

Have a fantastic weekend everyone. I hope the summer weather isn't causing you too much trouble.

Thanks Dove. Rest - to be honest a trip to the kitchen for a drink is knackering I'd get a thermos flask if that didn't involve bending down. I don't even have the energy to browse Amazon or the RHS website for ideas!

Its a friends wedding on Saturday. Partner is the best man I'm scared silly in case he catches it. It would be an annoyance if I were to miss part of the wedding celebrations but the start of a full bridezilla tantrum if he's not there all of the time!
