Good morning all  G'day Pat and Ginger if you're around

So glad that Wonky's on the mend - at least I can understand what she's saying on the phone - there was one day that all she could do was mumble and I had to tell her to text me!    DD, hope yours is better soon .... I remember when I had a similar infection - I'd have rather gone through six labours than go through that again!

Temp down to -0.4C in the sheltered back garden last night, but above freezing now ... just

We've not got many birds visiting the feeders at the moment - I think they're missing the ash tree we felled.  It'll be better when we get some shrubs in to replace it.

.... Looked up that brasserie Dove. Sounds normal to me because it's French!

Absolutely - it seems to me to be the glamorous sister of Chartiers in Paris.  The food was superb, amazing value and faultless service

Popped out earlier and put a bit more insulation around the sides of the little greenhouse.  Although the temp in the back garden went up to + 3C, the ice on the pond and birdbath hasn't melted. 

Feet have been up and the knitting is growing

Which Lavender ?

Just remember that the French types (the ones with the 'bunny ears') are not as hardy as the English varieties

Always a good idea to improve drainage by digging in some grit before planting

Which Magnolia?

As long as your soil doesn't contain too much lime, I'd go for this one

Unless they're a dwarf variety they could grow 7 - 8 ft plus, just like ordinary runner and French beans and will need a wigwam or something sturdy to climb up.

You'll need to plant them outside and it's far too early at the moment.

Start the rest off in April and plant out in early June after the last frosts.
