Hello all

Was such a lot of rain that came down really bad at 12pm last night woke me up and then massive thunder and lightening horrible

Runnybeak1 plantains help too for nettle stings or if not sting cream

Yesterday thought I would re plant up a pot - managed to get my plant pot emptied from front door then spent a while putting the plants and bulbs in front garden and back some under pallet bench, then spent a while planting front garden border with wallflower from nursery bed I have grown from seed and wallflower from veg bed that I got gw offer then mulched the border with soil improver

Got the pot planted bulbs and cyclamen and 3 other pots for front with coloured heathers to go with the pot colour

Today was so wet in bits showers most the day, ground so soggy finally finished the turfing off

Thanks all it was GWRS that was wanting green manure seeds, I have some I got from Mr Fothergill's online a while ago

So exciting for you Fruitcake to have your key for your new plot - now you can go to the plot when ever you want

Sounds as though some of have great bargains - what garden goodies did you get?

I guess lurkies are slugs

Think I spotted Katie's dad from Youtube at his allotment on the way to Hillier's Braishfield I got some turf for the garden

lots of fruit in the GC now

Hello all

Been doing turfing today

Had to go get more turf as have some areas that still need grass

Amazing how Botley Hillier's only got turf in on Friday and sold out today so went to Braishfield which had quite a few rolls and they got it in on Thursday - I guess they are wanted around Botley GC a lot more

Got help from dad with my wood for the cold frame lid using a router cutting out a grove and I had a small go to help slot the Perspex in

How warm is it with you today?
