Hello all

Been mixing compost and topsoil which got added to a ground bed area, planted up bulbs in pots tulips and daff and put up a trellis on top of a fence got to play with dads power tools and placed pots where I wanted them.

My dahlias in ground and growbags have now gone black but ones in baskets near the house are doing well

Archiepem that was a lot of chopping

Fairygirl you have been doing lots of good prep for your gravel

New allotment OMG...

Fruitcake I grow sweet peas for cutting to bring indoors, even though not done so well with it this year pretty flowers and nice smell and attracts the pollinating insects

I just have an area next to the fence to grow them - here is a pic when I done really well in 2011 with them it was a new flower bed then so lots of compost added

Ginagibbs that was an amazing find, have you been skip trawling - good the allotment got a delivery of bark for your paths

Woo2 feel better soon, sounds as though you were productive anyway, what seeds did you order

Woo2 Bday wishes - sounds as though you have nice flowers take pics and nots of them for ideas - was a windy day here too  

Hello Beaus Mum - Like a cut flower area may have a small one here in the garden

I have looked at seed catalogues noted down things I would like but not buying any this year (stopped myself buying seeds this year) as I have so many seeds - need to go though all those and organise them and get free ones from mags

GWRS sounds a good lot ordered there, I have a few packs of seeds past there date - by a year or two and have sown and grown them fine as long as they were stored well should germinate fine 

BizzieB how is your allotment are you still sharing a plot as well as your new one

That's a shame fruitcake - like the way you got the pallets in the car

GWRS that sounds good not tried growing anything vertically in pallets

Ginagibbs you got loads of access to pallets that is great

Hello all

Been a bit wet today, was a trip to the station yesterday sorting out rubbish still looks good up there and the turf has some good green patches so looks ok

Have been painting bits of pallets bright yellow for little fences around a wildflower patch for station
