Hello forkers

I have been out playing in the garden making a brick edging and then playing with the pond it fitted into the pond hole I dug before - only a few bits to alter dad helped me, carrying lots of water butt water down the garden to fill the pond that's the weight lifting done.

Sun was out today so warm ish out there, I even saw a large bee flying around spring here

Does anyone want any baby cyclamen hederifolium alba?  I've got hundreds of babies coming up all over the place.

Dove I did not label lots of my bulbs in pots so will be a surprise when they show up like yours

I dug up Poppy pattys plum, because it was sprouting and I remembered I dont like the muddy coloured flowers even if everyone else raves about it.  It fell apart and I potted the bits. 10 plants of pattys plum anyone?



Can I have some fidgebones I like please

That's if you still have them both

Evening all

Been to a Hillier's Romsey garden talk today - Get the best from your garden with Pip Bensley.

Was really interesting I came away with seeds compost for later on, I am still holding off on seed sowing too much other bits to do in the garden. I got a new product slug gone woollen pellets which will be interesting to try.

So many nice plants there I am waiting for the Hillier's little mag to be out end of next week for other offers on 9cm perennial plants . Will be popping back sometime to get some pants then. Was too hungry today so went home for lunch

Got home and my QVC order was waiting for me so I tested out the brush on the moss on the back garden path and as the station bins had to be sorted out took the brush up there and tested it in between the brick paving really worth getting like it
