Welcome back flowerbird, I feel what your saying dovefromabove & tinaturner. Even though I am 24 I am nearly 39 weeks pregnant & am having to tell myself to take more regular breaks.
But I am always find something else in the garden that needs pulling up or doing! Will be glad when this baby is here so I can go back to my old ways & just get on with it!

I do love my gardening also I hope everybody is making the most of this gorgeous sun some of us seem to be having especially down here in the south!

Hi Hollie hock

That is exactly what I am having trouble with, I know joe said on gardeners world 2 episodes ago about planting boarders that ideally you have plants for each season. I.e spring, summer, autumn & winter but its proving difficult for me with soil clay to find anything that fits into any of those category's unless its the usual spring bulbs.

Hi I am wondering if you lovely people can think of any plants/shrubs that will grow or do well in a clay like soil. My garden is part shady but not all through the day (so does get a little sun in the boarders) during the afternoon! I have searched the Internet and a few books but I have found nothing that is striking. Am hoping to get a list so I can get to the garden centre & start planting in the next few weeks (if the weather stays) Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance Jem x

It Is Not Spring Yet !!!

It's lovely & sunny here! Cold in the shade but once in the sun it's 7c no rain either have planted some spring bulbs in the front of my garden where the soil in a lot more free draining. Raked up the leaves on the front grass & generally tided up the front garden including de weeding.
The back garden is a different story, it's boggy, with clay soil so nearly Impossible to do anything. So I suppose I'll have to wait until its a lot more dryer before I attempt to put anything in the raised beds.
Oo and I have also sowed my first lot of sweet pea's (I know I should have waited but will see how they get on) the seeds were only from the pound shop so not expecting too much
Enjoy your day what ever your doing
