Zoomer44 any pics?   Sounds as though your plot is a secret garden with lots of treasures to be found - keep going

At the train station garden we have unearthed lots of old rubbish and some money 1ps and 2ps mainly and lots of stones, roots 

Fruitcake sounds as though you had a good harvest and what to plant next

Do any of you have a wildflower patch?

How is your allotments today?

forgot to say OMG Fairygirl the white buddleia is beautiful

make sure you go with the paper compost bags not the plastic one, we don't use them anymore used the plastic ones spent year or more as they do not rot down quick, kept putting them back in the compost bin, still have bits in raised beds fish them out a lot and bin them such a pain
