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

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
