Evening all

Busy day with container talk, lady doing the talk planted up a nice container , I enjoyed it after planted up a few hanging basket with the free compost they are for the back garden and my mummy helped me with picking out plants and we got to plant up some hanging baskets for Woolston station 

Hanging baskets planted with violas - heather, pansy,aubretia, bellis, cyclamen and grasses 

Lots of nice plants there bought a few bits black/pink fern - athyrium niponicum metallicum, lamium, mahonia soft caress and few more bits I had a voucher for 20% off plants   

Nice and dry and warm today so good planting day
