CharlieBot  I grew statice last year they were simple to grow, I sowed in a tray then pricked out then when big enough planted in a grow bag, but I did sow them too late so only got a flower or two,  some plants have survived the winter in the grow bag so hopping they will flower this year

well just come back from watering station garden sweet peas and there was a nice bunch of tulips but someone had picked them from the garden we saw the evidence, so now we have them in two vases to enjoy ourselves

Matty2 that look brilliant area and plant

Beaus mum great idea, I liked the way Rachel de Thame had her raised beds in GW a while back  

Been sorting out digging my ground bed adding feed and compost also putting the wire up the fence with some help for the sweet peas. Sorted out my cream bed put canes back in as dividers and re planted a few plants - sweet Williams, mallow and a few others
