Stay strong Panda.

Enjoy your day everyone even if it's a working one- not long now Dove

Morning all. Even I couldn't eat cake just now Dove- afternoon tea would be perfect! 

Dull but dry here. Hope to get something done later outside. 

Work first though 

Good Evening FORKERS

Evening all. Had a busy day- weather was lovely and not too hot for digging and sawing etc so got lots done. Deadheading, potting on some little plants, taking tons of cuttings and planting the cyclamen I got the other day into alpine pans. Got my bark path round the shed done and put some edging boards in place along back fence to make a small border. I can get it filled with compost etc  and get some plants in it before the winter. Would be ideal for lots of bulbs too while other things establish. 

Chicky - well done - award yourself some cake. That's a  hard shift!  

Tomato 'sauce'  sounds lovely Dove.

Enjoy the rest of the evening everyone

Thanks Dove - what did you make for everyone else though? 

Get well soon Woody - plenty of hot drinks- and cake

I'm considering some sarcococca (yes- christmas box) for one of my new borders too Jesse and I would buy reasonably established shrubs- 2 or 3 litre pots. My local nursery sells it and I think I saw some in B&Q the other day. You're probably right about the GC- it's very naughty of them if they do that!

Shorthand for Garden Centre 

Evergreen Shrubs?

Choisya would be my first thought or Escallonia. Ceanothus maybe -if you like the blue flowers.

Jesse- your GC sounds very condescending! Hebes are great if you want the look of box balls but don't want the trimming as there are plenty of small rounded ones available. Flowers on them too which attract bees.

I have 'wee' borders too!
