David K Woolmans with 10% off in the GW mag now new for next year

Keep going Woodgreen Wonderboy as we will be there

Gardenmaiden that is great lots of fruit for you

Zoomer44 oh no with the fruit trees  but good luck - you are definitely a gardener moving plants around after planting them 

New allotment OMG...

Zoomer yes I mean the GW mag offer with the other bits as well looks a good one

The potato show I go to has seed swap, plants, trays gifts and lots of pea and bean seeds - I got my peach tree from there last year lots of stuff to look at and get

we just take some food with us as they do not have much to eat there apart from cups of hot drinks and biscuits for lunch - so we take sandwiches and doughnuts need extra sugar boost for looking at all the spud and picking which ones to go for    

GWRS got my egg boxes ready as well

Like this thread - My Challenge is to get the paving slabs out of the garage and put in the new turf area

To grow more plant from seeds, also to grow some cape gooseberries when I order the seeds 

Lilylouise saw yours in my Garden News mag - nice garden pics

Q for the new years day flower count do we count all flower heads on violas or is it counted as one?
