Sprinkled BFB around the raspberries. Mulched same with well rotted FYM. Dumped three barrows full  of FYM on courgette patch.

Then it rained again, so I did a few cuttings of giant hidcote lavender, and came in.

Thanks Marion, I will look out for it. I have had angelique in the past. The heavy sleet/snow/hail that we have had in the last couple of days has broken down most of my double daffs .

Sowing Foxgloves (Digitalis)

I sowed some (Candy Mountain)in March i have just pricked out into 3 inch pots.

When the 3 inch pots are full of roots I will put them in the final position some time this summer. I find that makes the biggest spikes for the following year.  For biennials in general you can sow any time up to June, to flower the following spring/summer.

That sounds like a new flowering stem. When you water it, add a few drops of orchid fertiliser to the water. I give mine a soak for an hour once a week in rain water with added orchid feed. I then let it drain so it is not standing in water.
