Evening forkers

Thanks Woodgreen wonderboy - was not sure what to use will have to take a look  in SCATS sometimes - Romsey one,     

Thanks 4thPanda lots of bulbs to choose from thats great, what colour your tulips?  when I go that way to the gc as well as free bulbs I have vouchers to use as gained lots of points on my garden centre card last time I went

Well today saw that Homebase having 15% off everything so that was it had to go get paint got 2.5 ltr of summer damson paint great, also got a whole lot of sale plants a ceanothus, box hedging plants, dianthus, verbena rigida and a passion flower -  that discount helped with it all,  got all of that on my nectar card points as I had £25 worth so FREE

Then later took all plants to the station garden and more plants from which I have donated from the garden and planted them out took a few hours but they are planted and watered in

Hey Gg, dunno about your lawn sorry. Did you see my post about zingy lime? Also have you any experience using bulb planters?
Watched beechgrove, fast forwarded through veg stuff as usual, very little about the 'real' garden .

Mrs Garden been searching through most of my garden mags thought I read something about long handled bulb planters can't find it in my mags but found one in the daily mail sat mag last weeks it is a Yeomans one for £9.99

Me only got small bulb planter should think about long handled bulb planter yeoman on good though
Will try use nectar points at homebase to get some paint going for Summer damson, zingy lime, smooth pebble and possibly shadded glen

4th Panda are you going to check out and get the free bulbs there are, report back to forum later what there is - as me got the free bulb voucher is that the wyevale gc now the garden centre group
