Primrosecottage, I bought a Penny lane a few years back in B&Q's clearance. Its done really well and bloomed almost straight away. We also have a Kifsgate rambler and Wedding Days, cant remember names of any of the others

,Hi all, well done choosing your plot Garden Girl, you must be pleased

Lots of faces at the allotment over the bank holiday, no sign of the chinese family though, and nothing more has been done on their plot. Making some of my beds a bit wider as I had left the paths very wide on one side, so I should have a bit more growing space. Back ache today though 

Got more pea plants in and some cauliflowers (under cloches), its been to wet and windy to sow. Whats happened to our weather!!

No GW tonight?

I find quite a few fossils down here in the Cotswolds Edd, shells and marine creatures mainly, seems a bit weird as its about 1000 ft above sea level! Found a couple of Ammorites I put them in the garden with my alpine plants

No GW tonight?

Going to the Malvern Flower show, anyone else going?
