Just when we thought spring was heralding her triumphant return old Jack Frost has snuck back in and I am back to wearing my winter woolies, all my spring gardening plans have been put on hold..............but not for long........Jacks days are numbered!

Spring has sprung in my garden

My daffs and narcissus are staring to open and also a couple of snowdrops.....the winter pansies which I put in during December are in full flower and so are my primroses. Just potted on some of my geranium cuttings and they are well rooted....all waiting to be put out as soon as the weather warms up.....hopefully soon!

azalea has lost its leaves!!

Sometimes best to leave things alone and see if they right themselves.

MOB rants

Well I haven't got a rant at the moment. Didn't feel like moaning when I was going through the checkout....very unusual, that's the place that always gets me. I usually sprout horns when I see how many shopping trolleys are infront of me.....and especially when the shopper is chatting merrily to the check out girl.......well I had none of that today, I was All smiles and deliriously happy.....mmmmm....I wonder what is wrong with me today????

Hi cal, just create a thread to ask what you want, lots of really good people on the forum who will help and advise. Also you can read through discussions and pick up loads of tips. You can even have a laugh sometimes as well.

Hi Pam, enjoyed looking at your pics and all those cuttings......I live in a flat but have a balcony and sort of garden space, I took about 15 cuttings last summer from trailing and upright geraniums, I left them on my bathroom and window sill, they are doing really well. I have them in small plant pots, do you think I should pot them on again, was just going to harden them off when it got warmer and put them straight out, can't upload pics from this device but it is nice to see other members piccies, barb
