Evening all

Just finished watching on iplayer Monty and the last of his programmes really interesting this one enjoyed it

Well the garden waste bin was emptyed yesterday so needed filling and now full still lots of bits from pampus grass - but have to wait 2 weeks for it to be emptyed and still lots to clear out of garden, have fed lawn with autumn food and watered in hope it does what it says

Had a small trip to local garden nursery got one plant for my half hanging basket, and brought 2 small baskets ready for Hillier workshop in a week and a bit

4thPanda I put plants on the top of bulbs in pots, things like violas/pansy and grasses and heukras - can't spell it. coloured heathers would be good and lots of other plants that don't get to big  

seed share

Coys I would leave them to get bigger, the first set of proper leave (the true ones) come out after the ones that have appeared up in the soil - then the plant id may be possible as they look more like the plant will be

I have found seeds pop up somewhere else wind likes to blow them around.

those seeds must of picked that place to be

put another pic on later when bigger

Evening forkers

Been a busy day sorting out bits at station, have used long handled bulb planter today at the station garden, ok what do I say - well the only thing is if you have stoney soil not so easy to use - only went in ground a small bit, some areas ok to use but most only went in about 1 inch or 2 - so it was back to small bulb planter and trowel.

Planted all large 5kg bag of daffs and some tulips still more to go just don't want to end up digging up bulbs planted already when planting more

Will try long handled bulb planter at home and maybe in grass area. will try again

Monty mad it look so easy with his soil on GW and Chris B made it look ok on Beechgrove gardens maybe because it was on lawn and good soil
