Brilliant idea KS!

I love crocus - mine are mostly in the raised beds I made last year but I have some in plastic pots to fill gaps and to put inside nice pots which then get switched round with other things when the crocus are finished. I lay fine netting over some of them when planting to stop squirrels but there's not much you can do if you have loads of mice,voles etc eating them. Rabbits eat them when they're out the ground too so if you have bunnies plant them in tall pots or grow daffs and snowdrops instead!

Is that the same theory as salt kept in open wooden containers pansy? It absorbs the moisture.

Liri- glad all is well with granddaughter 

You and I could set up a ladies landscaping business! You can shift slabs and do paving and I'll do the woodwork. Although I can do gravel paths and shed bases as well 

You're much more careful than me though...I don't have the steel toecaps...

Off to bed soon so I'll catch up tomorrow before and after work. Night all

What on earth would we do if we didn't have gardens? 

...and what on earth do other people do if they don't have one!

Fishy - it's lovely that you're so thrilled with it. I can feel your excitement from here! 

Hope Mrs F was finished reading the mags though...

Lyn - I was going to say what fun you'll have in the bedroom then, but that might be taken the wrong way...

Aren't we daft?

nut - the trouble with looking is  - it leads to spending....

and I have an extension to pay for soon...

I'm trying to avoid looking

Brilliant Lyn - they'll be spoiled for choice there won't they! Is that view taken from your house? You'll get some lovely entertainment if it is, especially in winter 

I like the careful positioning of the seat though ....

weedy ID's please
