There is 3 more on the topic of cut flowers by Rachael really like her, then that is it for gw this year -  it said in the gw mag as there is an article that there will be 4 shows of how to grow cut flowers

I am recording them all to remember later on as I want to have a cut flower patch

Hello all

Did just write stuff computer lost it

Sunny and warmer today and dry amazing so I was out in the garden used the tiller preparing area for turf, planted up a container with forget me nots, 3 of my free tulips charade, orange violas and a purple daisy

Spent a while washing up my 4 basket and some pots from front garden ready to plant, then emptied out 2 of the hanging basket from summer and washed them as well - managed to plant up one hanging basket with my plants
