I have bought a few plants from Lidl and they have all been really good. Purchased some fucshias last year and they have all made it through the winter and looking good. I've got some Heuchera that I got about 3 years ago and they have grown very well. Lidl plants, great value for money.

At last the sun has shown its face and I have been in the garden most of the day. Planted some sweet william and cosmos out into the garden and some pot marigold. I've potted on into larger pots my new fucshias. It is so nice to see the sun and have it little warmer. I don't want to alarm anybody but I was in the garden without my coat and hat today.

Celeriac info

I'm with welshonion, I have never got a Celeriac bigger than a tennis ball either. They are a lovely veg though. You can bake them, fry them, steam them even mash them in with your mash potato, so versatile.

Hi Nikki I have successfully grown two Lilac trees grown from cuttings, I just pulled new shoots off dipped them in rooting powder and potted them up,  I have got these in large pots. As you can see it is flowering very well and the perfume is lovely. I have had them for about 5 years and they flower like this every year.

I still use my Dads garden spade and fork. I can always remember him using them even when I was a child. He has been gone 24 years now and I have no idea how old they are but I treasure them and miss him dreadfully.

What are the fields of yellow flowers I see everywhere now? " />

I call them sunshine fields because they always look so sunny and bright.

Gardens we have visited 2013

We visited the Keukenhof in Holland in April. It was a beautiful sight to see, so many tulips, just breathtaking, and the perfume from the Hyacinths was just unbelievable.
