Fishy, it's easy to be fooled by a pretty plant.

is there still time to plant new plants

Bandita - any perennials you buy at this time of year will be good sized plants which can be divided to give you several small plants. You can then pot them up, keep them in a sheltered spot over winter, and then you can pot on again in spring to give decent sized plants for planting out in summer. You can treble the value - great if you have a lot of spaces to fill

I think you can probably buy plugs of all those plants NG4. Some of the online sites will do them although I'm sure you'll also be able to get clover on it's own as seed.

Veronica is the little blue one - probably

Morning Lesley. He ( tufty) just appeared at the right moment and sat quite happily for a while 

I'm needing copious amounts of tea just now. Even though I drink plenty when walking, there's nothing like that first cuppa when I get back and I do feel quite dehydrated for a while after. 

Don't think I'll be doing much gardening today - I may be joining doc with a bit of 'resting' and not much else 

Restoring wooden trough planter

Hi Eileen, I think you could use any of the garden wood paints or stains - there's loads of choice out there in almost any colour you can think of 

I'd be inclined to line it first though, just to help prevent any further rotting for as long as you can, as you obviously want to keep it in good repair as long as possible. I used a heavy duty black polythene for all my timber raised  beds, but if you turn an old compost bag inside out that would do the same job. The black inner will 'disappear' when the soil and plants are in place.

Morning all  

Damp and cloudy here. Had a reasonable sleep but will hopefully get a better one tonight.

Crossing fingers Dove. Nothing's ever straightforward is it? 

Take it easy today doc, although if the cricket's going badly that may not be possible 

Think Panda may have a sore head today...she could do with some of your dinner Pat!

Thanks doc - I doubt there'll be another 100 though 

I missed Panda's birthday - hope you've had lots of cake 

You've all been very busy - glad you enjoyed your bike ride chicky. Bet you did a fair few miles 

Lots of hedgehog, pumpkin and scone chat I see. Not a fan of cheese scones - they don't go with the jam 

I'd like there to be a bigger gap between Christmas and....Christmas...
