Maybe he will when he is in his own garden look more about alpine plants, the plants did look great only thing in flower mainly at minute - did look cold there, they said weather about 20 days behind - sounds about right

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  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

Hi Woo2 - Your Sweet peas should grow nicely after being pinched out they should grow nice side shoots and get stronger

Piddled with rain for most of the day today. Planted some more seeds indoors - lupins, canterbury bells, a blue primula called noverna deep blue. There weren't many seeds in the free packet, but I'm hoping for the best. 

I've done lots of potting on of seeds planted earlier and almost feel like a real gardener!

A real gardener you are one already
