Evening Forkers.   Lovely day here today, so did rest of planting in front garden after buying just a few more plants at the GC.  Planted out violas and pansies that I already had, then sorted out most areas.  Bought some beautiful blue grasses.

Got in earlier tonight, before the street lights came on.  Will have to wait for GC to restock before garden is complete, but nearly there.

Watched Gardeners World and enjoyed it.

Would i be better getting a few seed trays and seed compost and starting my seeds in them,then putting them in my shed next to the window.would this give me a better chance.

 

 

Thats a great idea worth a try that way, I grow lots of seeds in tray,  all you need to do is plant in your raised bed

Paint samples still in pots.  Bit wet to try to paint it at the moment.  Need to have at least 2 days of dry weather so that the wood can be painted.

I do love gardening and just had to get it done.

Evening Forkers, been out in the garden till late sorting it out, hoeing, forking, arranging and planting all the plants.  Lucky for the street light as it was only an hour ago that I finished, 

Found out that I have not yet got enough plants.  Another trip to the GC needed.  Bit windy and wet but had to be done.

Pics will come later.

 

Qqqqqqqquite exciting........

Coys - I would say leave the bark mulch off until seeds have grown in to plants that are big enough to be above the rest of the bark mulch then cover around lightly if not the seeds might not grow as no light getting in

Glad you got your seeds cotty1000 and coys
