Great pics

I went to inexcess Ringwood and managed to get  Alan Titchmarsh book on how to garden, allotments gardening  for 1.99 great book bargain price

I got a few things and looked at the tools some good ideas for when I get my plot and rough prices from there

I also watch a video on tools and prices which was helpful

Hello all thanks Fidgetbones for that pm

Fidgetbones I have sent you a message with a question

Hello all

Had a quick check in the garden yesterday and some of my stuff had been dug up the plant pot I put a pic on here before - this one below

One side had been dug up and my tulips bulbs have gone, been eaten little bits left - must be the rats, I noticed as the dirt was every where on my other planters and little violas missing - I have put the compost back found 2 viola plant to add back and a small bit of moss

Thought it would be ok as high up - so will not get the effect that I had intended on with the mixed tulip bulbs only one side of bulbs

Zoomer that's a shame you live far to far away from me for my help, but your locked box sounds a good idea

Fruitcake how about this you could have a go at making your own chicken coop, if you can do that sort of thing

spotted a hedgehog in front garden last night so going to make a house when I am better

Hello all well been to the dr's to see if they could give me any meds as cold got worse ears so sore and painful as with rest of head,  I have flu no meds as they can't give me anything -  just over counter stuff like lemsip and lots of vitamins

So lots of rest for me and I have so much to do in the garden

Now I get you Zoomer was thinking with the shed with no door you could have a horse stable style door as in two bits top and bottom bit one that opens and one bit shut made out of quite a few bits of wood and then you could bolt them together  to open at same time

Great find Ginagibbs with the book

Thanks for the picture GWRS was thinking of the offer from GW of clematis great idea for the water butts if I can grow them on to make bigger plants
