Thanks Verdun

MrsGarden - like off Father Ted, go on - go on - go on - keep the bulb planter on your list, it is enjoyable as a pogo stick

this might help MrsGarden -  looks like that not that deep in the ground

Yes Pentillie, cake was a pre-dinner snack - naughty me, but needed it to help with the back pain.  Very tasty.   Dinner yet to come.

Mrs Garden, bulb planter was also tried in the grass, but land very solid and it only went in about two inches.  Not sure if it is the grass being really compacted or if you need to dig area before planting bulbs.

Will keep using the bulb planter even if I resort to using it only in the veg patch to help make holes for planting.  Will try harder next year once ground has been dug a bit more and grass area re-sown and improved

Question about the lawn - do I remove the weeds from the lawn before scarifying again as I have given it an autumn feed, or do I wait until after the scarifying?

Evening all

Just finished watching on iplayer Monty and the last of his programmes really interesting this one enjoyed it

Well the garden waste bin was emptyed yesterday so needed filling and now full still lots of bits from pampus grass - but have to wait 2 weeks for it to be emptyed and still lots to clear out of garden, have fed lawn with autumn food and watered in hope it does what it says

Had a small trip to local garden nursery got one plant for my half hanging basket, and brought 2 small baskets ready for Hillier workshop in a week and a bit

4thPanda I put plants on the top of bulbs in pots, things like violas/pansy and grasses and heukras - can't spell it. coloured heathers would be good and lots of other plants that don't get to big
