Lovely photos, Marion. Spring has certainly arrived in your garden. Is that double white hellebore "Mrs Betty Ranicar"?

 Dove has one, then I bought one. Its lovely.

I'm using Levington M3 (pro) in 75L bags. (£7.50) Last years and this years new stock,both excellent. A pallet load delivered costs a bit less per bag.  Heavy bags to hump around though.

If you google "firepit"it brings up lots of versions on amazon, tesco, etc.

Then its a case of you pays your money and take your pick.

I think the answer is we don't know what brand Monty Don has, but there are lots of similar versions.

My OH thinks that watering cans should have a little ladder on the inside, so when a mouse drops in, it can climb out and not drown. We've had two drown so far this year. They tend to clog up the spout.

Magnolias are a good idea. Very low maintenance. I planted mine 20 years ago, and have barely touched it except to remove some lower branches to let light on the bulbs planted beneath it.

 I had just dozed off again when my brother rang. He is on the way with the part (expansion tank) for next doors boiler. £200 for a spare part or £1000 for a new boiler... no contest really. While he's here, he can service mine as well.  Only trouble is , that at 6ft 5in, he needs feeding all the time. He was the biggest. My grandad was big Jim...at around 6ft (born 1900). My mum had sisters at 5 ft 10., I have a sister at 5ft 10, and her eldest is 6ft 7 and still growing.....  me, I'm the runt of the litter, only 5ft 6.

 Still, nearer to the ground and all that..
