The Sir  John Borlase Warren on Canning circus has just been renovated and reopened for business.  The Hand and heart on Derby rd is still there too.

Panda, did I give you snowdrops last year?

How did they do?  I dug them up earlier than I usually do. I normally split them  after they die down, and replant straight away.

Hand weed as best you can.

.Paint any weeds carefully with a glyphosate gel touchweeder(roundup)

Mulch well

If you start a  new bed, you must be sure to eradicate any perennial weeds before you replant.

Well I've done some gardening. Three lots of banana seeds in the propagator. I've floated some hellebore flowers in a bowl, and I've picked some kale.

Onion seeds tomorrow I think.  I'm pacing myself.

Beautiful pictures of Grenada., punkdoc. Did you go to the nutmeg factory? I thought it smelt of sunday mornings. My mum always made egg custard with nutmeg on on sundays.

 

Remove box hedging?

Some people like clipping little hedges. I dont. To me it just gets in the way. There might be someone local who would take it off your hands.

Personally I would rip the lot out, and make a useful  veg plot. I suspect you would double your functional space.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I agree with Verdun. Nothing wrong with growing in normal soil in rows.

 

Seed Sowing Time Yet?

Dont chillies have to be soaked in tea for 24 hours first? I seem to remember something like that on Staceys, chilli thread last year.

I am soaking banana seed, before they go in the propagator tomorrow.
