My one didn't fruit until planted in the ground, and now we are inundated.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Tidied up the raised brick flowerbed in my sons schools playground and planted some 'spare' plants from home. Spent so long doing it, I got surrounded by children at breaktime asking questions and wanting to help. Not finished, though. Another day and it will be done.

One for the ladies. ......

I always loop handbag straps over the gearstick. That way I don't kill my husband as he gets out of the passenger seat.

One probable weed, one possible keeper

The first one looks like a wild geum. It has small yellow flowers.

The second one looks like an eryngium, sea holly to me, but I'm not sure which one.

You could try things like radish, basil, lettuce, baby carrots, strawberries, spring onions. But it looks in good condition and ideal for the kitchen too.

You could plant your strawberries in the ground if you have the space. If they are happy you will get lots of runners which will become baby plants.

Its a shame subscribers don't get this kind of perk that can be useful. I get the subscribers edition of GWM but I can't see the difference to buying it, only that it arrives earlier.

Yes it was world and it take you to where you can apply for the seeds from different suppliers. We went for Kong, tried the other sites but couldn't get onto them.

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.
