Panda It's going at the far end of the garden, between the compost heaps and the trellis fence - I think

Wonky that looks fantastic!  Brilliant!!! And where did that comfy seat come from? 

You will still need to do slug/snail patrols inside the greenhouse and maybe even put some of the organic pellets down - they're no respecters of greenhouses either

Rob - just one of these   or even

Good morning again Wonky!   Come on, let's have a pic of the greenhouse even if there's not a video of the greenhouse wrestling (could this be a new olympic sport?) 

Spending money on the garden must be in the family at the moment -  I've ordered my tiny little garden shed (hardly more than a cupboard really) .  Hopefully here in about 10 days   I'm going to paint it a couple of shades darker than the fence and fix some of these to the inside of the door

Then I won't have to keep going through the studio into the garage to get my garden tools - well, not the ones I use every day anyway.

Good morning Verdun  - no drizzle here ...... overcast, but the sun's trying to peep through  -  must do some food shopping before we get into the garden, otherwise we'll starve

problem solving

I find that with many sources of advice, it helps to ask why one source says do this while the other says do that  - I look for differences in soil, weather, temperature, condition of plant ...... all sorts of things, and then try to make a judgement as to which will best suit the circumstances of my plants in my garden. 

And of course, come on here and ask away - it's good to 'talk'

I think that with all 'Do this weekend' type features, we have to take into account, as you are doing, the condition of the plants (as well as the condition of the soil and the state of the weather). 

It sounds to me as if you are making a sensible judgement - let them make sturdy little plants before putting out.

Good morning all

A garden visit sounds a very good idea

Hope that the 'cruel to be kind' treatment works Hosta, and that you're soon much more mobile and painfree.

Yvie - poor little one - ear ache is soooooo horrid

I think Panda deserves a medal - or at least she will after the trip
