HELLO FORKERS!

Hello all

Been mild out today was spitting a few times, went bulb planting got most of the tulips done only 3 left for a pot - had to cut and clear a few bits first one hebe needed cutting back and I ended up making them into cuttings in little plant pots 

Got some alliums planted too, put wallflower on top of the areas where the bulbs were planted, I also planted out lots of wallflower in a border in the front garden and mulched with soil enricher

So that is most of the bulbs planted still a lot of bulbs to plant at the station yet   

Feels a bit like spring lots of bulbs starting to pop up even spotted a tulip tip 

Was thinking you would be over here now Busy-Lizzie  are you staying in Brighton

Hello all

Big pain yesterday in the garden I went to sow my sweet peas ended up noticing some of my pots had been knocked over then a daff bulb was on the ground near a plant, a few pots had been dug in compost moved around

As I did not know which pot the bulb came from so I emptied out them 3 pots daffs and the tulips 2 pot found that out of 10 tulips I have one bulb left and 2 daff bulbs gone, think the rats have eaten them - that so pissy,   I have put chicken wire on top of the pots now.

I managed to sow my sweet peas

Station garden today put up a pallet fence and sowed wildflower seeds then I managed to get to the roof garden cut some bits of the trees and brambles all in the garden bin

Check this out so cute  http://home.bt.com/news/odd-news/nutty-squirrel-flips-in-joy-11363944652543

Ginagibbs great find there - dividing off bits of plot sound good

You lot and your good finds in the skips nothing like that here

BizzieB you could have small beds wide ways down the side of your plot and grow flowers for cutting

Added straw to the strawberry bed like I saw on some of the plots at the allotment to give a mulch other that that been to station garden cutting stuff
