Never moved a lavender but why not , give it a bit of TLC and it should be ok , take a cutting or 2 as insurance

moved an out door fuchsia 4 times and it is still going strong , best of luck

Yum yum

Hello , just dug up my Purple potatoes , Ablert Barlet Purple Majesty 

if you want something different grow these because when they are cooked they keep there colour ie. Purple 

given some to friends last year and some didn't like like them , taste was fine just the colour put them off , personally I think they are great , salad , boiled or mashed

What's new with you ?

The party pans sounds interesting , will try them next year as I will have lots of extra room on my allotment as we orignally had half and have just taken on the other half 

you must have been unlucky with the celeriac all our germinated 

I am going to put some spinach and chard in over the weekend both kept growing over the winter 


What's new with you ?
