OL I thought if they are small wallflowers from T&M then I wont bother and then I noticed they were bare root and from a different supplier -  as I have a few I have grown from seed but want more

think they flower earlier than sweet Williams

are you wanting a chimney pot to plant up, good deal for you OH

Hello all

Just back went to the station with long armed cutters sawing of bits of trees much clearer now 1 garden waste bag full all into garden waste bin just, when you went down the path you could not see the train electronic sign well with the train times on or busses for today

A few plants got planted out too, my top of arms and hand are a bit shaky it is holding the long armed saw heavy

I ordered the allium bulbs the other day so will be waiting a while for mine

I am going to go with the wallflower offer 50 bare root plants from woolmans - not heard of them before good being bare root they should at least be bigger than some of the T&M plantlets quite a few will go up the station

I wanting to do a layered bulb pot this year have done some before enjoy planting up pots and baskets

Glad you enjoyed your BBQ Busy-Lizzie I could smell it here when I went into the garden - some one must of been having one near by

Lesley and Bekkie  not sure we could have anything in the ground as it would be too difficult digging any hole not sure we have anywhere we could do that 

Issue with health and safety we did have a big drum that main man put in one of those blue drums for water,  concrete slabs in bottom to secure it and tied up, we filled with about 40 litres of water butt water we had in bottles it had a net put on top too more H&S issues with school kids may dunk other kid heads in it  -  it disappeared we emailed main man, then we got an email from main man saying South west trains took it away did not like it being there - so that was one down then later the water butt stand stolen then a few months later the water butt even though we had black writing on it garden water and out phone no saying it was out property

Well it is different not being your own garden

All the plants still looking good and flowering
