The test for a real gardener is in the finger nails. There's a sort of ingrained murkiness that's still there when you get out of the shower.
I must be a real gardener - as I end up with my nails like that.
Been seed sowing indoors as raining out and buying more seed trays on Internet as got a good email http://email.marshalls-seeds.co.uk/rsps/wlnk/c/1530/r/671135/e/557 so just thought worth a try as always sow too many seeds for my trays.
Check out the link see what you think
I went to Wisley today. Had to collect someone from Heathrow so thought i would kill 2 birds etc. and have lunch and a quick look around. My favourite corner is the Alpine House which always looks good, especially at this time of year. Imagine my horror when I couldn't get into the AH...b****y Monty Don was in there filming for Gardeners' World. Not my favourite presenter at the best of times, and now it's getting personal. What's worse is that the AH looked better than ever... no doubt putting it's best foot forward for GW prog. But I couldn't get in!!
Shame missed seeing you on GW tonight as Monty was at Wisley in the Alpine house, I guess they stopped people going too near there because of filming
They were sowing wildflower seeds I need to do that so that was helpful for me
