Hello Weyplotter I am in Southampton waiting for a plot at Weston allotments, on council website says 3 month waiting list so not too long to wait now

I subscribe to GW mag and to Garden news which is weekly and gives away a lot of seeds most weeks more in spring and summer mostly flowers this year and a few veg

so you not too far from where I am

Do you have any pictures?   

So you kind of have a whole plot now

Hello all

Woody - not good about the house saw it in the paper what a bad fire and watched the video horrible  

Went to inexcess in Ringwood yesterday got a few goodies Alan Titchmarsh book for cheap, some violas for front garden and lots more bits, watch a wreath demonstration and she asked if I wanted to make one so then I tried to make one there with help ended up looking ok -bits of holly and fir tree and fir cones  - I brought it

Today been doing a small bit of pallet bashing and covering pots with chicken wire and empty hanging baskets frames even with plants

The plant pot that I planted with lots of bright colours has got attacked by rats may have lots some tulips small - now plants all squashed with chicken wire want to keep my bulbs

I lost all the other tulip bulbs in my pot with the fern as the rats came back to dig up and eat the other half of bulbs that were still there when I covered the dirt back up last week

I seem not to be allowed to grow tulips this year (not fair)  I so like the flowers on tulips and was looking forward to seeing them appear
