Its been like christmas here today. A big parcel of raspberry canes, another parcel with a couple of hundred bulbs in, and a pot chicken on a basket I bought for my egg lady. I potted up the eucomis and crocosmias, ready to plant out later. Double freesias for mum. Gladioli to go in between broad beans. Too cold to plant out raspberries so i did the potting in the greenhouse and came back in.
I'll put my thermals on tomorrow, and plant the raspberries.
You can keep the snow up there, I don't want it.
The mini polytunnel I bought last March has holes all over it. I phoned the manufacturer and they said it should last two full seasons. Well it didnt. Mind you, no quibbles, they are going to send a new cover. I suspect by the speed that they gave in, its a common problem. Only problem is , they are out of stock until march.
