Watched it enjoyed a few bits of it not so interested in the cooking side of things, could be a few more vegetables coming up in the next lot of letters hoping for french beans, could be fennel or may be french marigolds

I took cuttings form someone else's garden of some kind of large twiggy thing, did not have any leaves on then. I rooted them in a small plastic pot and leaves are coming and have rooted well, I am not sure what it is and would like anyone's thoughts of what it could be please - pictures below.

Anybody seen more birds out and about yet?

More of my honesty seeds have come up bit by bit I think these seeds appear, still waiting for the proper leaves to come up. Long time for those seeds to germinate nutcutlet I suppose if fresh they germinate quicker

Train Station Gardens

Hello Kathy

We started Sholing station in September, there is a lot of people in your group of volunteers ours here only has 2 or 3 sometimes not many - but after a while of clearing the garden area that was unused for a long time before we started gardening, South West trains did a shrubbery cut back which helped with the brambles, still had to do a lot of digging and gardening that had to be done but we can see lots of bulb heads popping up flowers will be arriving.

 Here's some daffodils popping up and a foxglove.

It will be good when we get to see all our efforts we put in. We still have lots of weeding to do and will enjoy the rewards of the plants in flower and the time gardening as well. We also have our own garden to keep enjoying as well. 

Interesting video link - gardening does get some places colourful, makes spaces look better don't you think?

What a good lot of volunteering everyone does - so well done all.

Hello Catherine

Try this link below, we are swapping seeds here online if you want to join in with us you can. I thought that the magazine was going to be like that as well but just buy seeds and have help instead which is nice as well.
