Hello all

Was out in garden a small bit clearing rubbish, moving bale of straw which is nice and wet - still need to add it to the horse poo yet.

Calendar sounds good Woody

Matty2 glad you got the plants you wanted shame it started raining - did here too

I filled up empty plastic bottles with water butt water - to get extra water as butts over full 

Verdun your grass sounds lovely

Quite a lot of the bulbs are going into pots but lots in ground too, just need the weather to be better

Bulbs I mainly got are tulips orange and purple/burgundy for pots, some daffs - also got a special bulb parcel containing some good bulbs, It takes a few weeks from order to arrival    

http://www.dejager.co.uk/_-Special-Bulb-Parcel-_product/?pid=26576

I used green manure from T&M same as you GWRS and from  http://seeds-plants.mr-fothergills.co.uk/search?w=green%20manure#.VDxPJbd0xjo for separate mixes - it add nutrients to the soil to improve it too,  stops the rain washing out all the goodness

Woo2 you will have to plan your garden - so when you can garden you know what you can do or be nosy on internet looking at bulbs and plants stuff

lots of bulbs arrived today for me to plant sometime at least with all the rain the ground is easier to dig

lots of bits to do here in the garden long list,  like making a cold frame for the sweet peas to go in when I sow them soon, is nice being busy out in the garden
