Hello all

Tillered big path area of veg path trying to sort out for turf - got it all done, so much shaking from that machine, cleaned the tiller all up I was just sorting it out for packing up rain started so that was a faster pack up.

Managed to feed the birds - brought more bird food online this morning  

Lesley K cyclamen are nice though

Chicky - did not know about a prog with Monty in next week will check this out thanks

Heat wave here I think well it is warmer out than it was last week

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

I used green manure from T&M same as you GWRS and from 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
