Bluebells and if you think there are too many clumps, dig them up now while you can see where they are.

I've been growing crystal lemon in pots for the last 3 years. The cucumbers are pale yellow and can range from grapefruit to apple sized.

Mail Order Plants - Where from?

Kelsbels, GW are doing a similar offer.

Charlie, had some plugs on Friday from T&M  and they are not puny.

Where do i start?

Hiring a machine to remove the turf from the areas you want to plant will be a big impact in a short space of time. Definitely plan on paper what you want to have where. Patio and path would be a good place to start first as you can use it as a holding area for any plants you do buy.

Have ordered from T&M, Gardeners World offers, Hayloft,  Parkers. It's also worth looking at the reduced rack in your local garden centre or B&Q

Hope to finish off tidying the soft fruit area this week. I'm sure my pair of robin 'bodyguards' will be joining me and doing a bit of karaoke.

Bargain Buy of 2015

What has been your best buy? Mine was a flaming katy for £1.00 and a slipper orchid £9.99. Never seen one 'in the flesh' before so hope I can keep it going.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
