Thanks Lyn

 A few of the new pallets maybe for the front garden on top of the wall want it to be higher up.  I am on a waiting list to get an allotment so some may go that way - still need to make the pallet bench with back for next to the pond 

The coldframe is being made from one of the other pallets that I took all the wood off, prob one of the ones near the begin of getting pallets - just took a while to get around to getting it built

Lots of bulbs still to be planted up the station and a few plants

Have daffs, tulips, alliums, irises in tyre planters and crocus  - new bulbs going to be planted English bluebells and corms crocosmia Lucifer donated from Woody , I will try and put pics on station thread when the bulbs appear  

I will put a few pics of cold frame when finished going to paint the inside today country cream colour

Hello all

I have been feeding the birds today and squirrels, the birds here are eating the peanut and mixed seeds and fat balls, one of my feeder attracts the pigeon and doves, have blue tits on the peanuts feeders, just after I put the food out a black bird was there  

I was watching out the window the other day and 3 squirrels were running around the garden over the wall and in to next doors (the joint house) garden playing around under there apple tree

Been sorting out my cold frame building over the last few days getting there still a bit to go

Q who has cold frame  -

what do you have in the bottom i.e. sand, grit ? 

I will have weed matting at the bottom  -

Do you have any insulation in there i.e. polystyrene sheets

I want to keep the sweet peas and dahlia tubers in there over winter any advice grateful

The apprentice final is on tonight

Dove amazing you saw Bob Flowerdew when you where shopping you could of got him to sign something
