Morning BM - yes, I'm very please - no, Frank's not posted lately has he?  Hope all is ok.


I think an Easter Day Flower Count is a good idea

Good morning all   I've just read back all of yesterday's posts - you were all so busy!!!  I've still got some house sorting to do - hopefully I'll get out in the garden next week (there'll probably be rain, hail, sleet, snow and tempest then!!!) 

Lovely to hear from Stacey and read all about everyone's gardens getting ready for spring.  Sorry about poorly pets   and poorly people ((hugs)) 

Daughter certainly feels that spending time in her garden has helped her - she says not to overdo things, just potter and enjoy the sunshine whenever it appears.  I bought her a gooseberry bush yesterday.

Hurrah!  Spring is springing

Purple sprouting broccoli

I agree - plant your brassicas in the ground and use containers for other things, salads, roots and beans are all happy in containers.

Purple sprouting broccoli can even look quite good planted amongst summer annuals in a cottage-style flower garden, then when the flowers are over you can take them out leaving more room for the broccoli to grow over the winter.

It's my birthday

 Clari   daughter got them wherever she could find them - I'm sure Tescos are just as good. 

As you probably know my last job involved visiting lots of schools and seeing lots of children - whenever someone new joined the team they always started going down with lurgies for the first winter - after that they'd built up an immunity - the rest of us who'd been there for ages hardly ever caught anything

Wrong plants sent by mail order

I've no idea whether these were the suppliers in question, but at tleast these two pictures show a distinct difference between the two types.


I'd take and print some photographs of yours and get them signed and dated on the back by an independent witness that they're what is flowering in your garden, then you have evidence for the Small Claims Court.

Good morning all

Hope it helps Bekkie - give it a good couple of months or so to take effect. 

It's a lovely sunny morning with blue skies - I'm meeting up with my daughter today and we're visiting my Aged Ps so won't be on the board most of the day.  OH will be here in charge of things like washing on the line and getting ham and cheese for pancakes
