Hallowe'en Party 31 Oct in The Log Cabin, Verdun's Garden

Shall I bring some Rocksteady and a bit of early reggae

Crocus Ard Schenk bulbs already sprouting - can I still plant them?

They'll be fine outside - plant them now about 4" deep, in a sunny spot.  They'll look gorgeous in early spring

While I'm thinking about my salvias, can I pick someone's brains - I've a couple of Salvia gregii in the front border - one's Icing Sugar and the other's a violet-purple one, have it's name somewhere.  I keep reading different things - some say hardy in UK - others say not so hardy.  They're in the front garden and we're near the bottom of a slope which can be a bit of a frost hollow - should I heap some mulch over them, when they do eventually stop flowering?

I did a bit of cutting back yesterday Verdun, but so many things are still looking good, the salvias were covered with flowers and visiting  bumbles

Shabby Chic Anyone?

Used to have lots of furniture and doors dipped - joints do need re-doing if the furniture is old, and it does dry the wood a bit, but nothing that a good wax finish won't sort out.

Fg, I'm pretty sure the weather man said it's going to get better up your way today - hope so anyway
