It was already 9degrees when I tumbled out of bed this morning so a mild day and no wind at the moment .End of the second month of Bristol being Green capital of Europe and I have kept to my resolve to not buy anything for the garden that needs to be delivered and to get new plants only through propagating from my own stock, seeds or from friends. Forsythia, cornus and black willow cuttings have gone in the ground , snowdrops being split to make another 3 or 4 hundred and big seed sowing session next week from freebies. Potatoes will be chitted from the leftovers from my crop last year.My bungalow uses a lot of heat that is wasted through the one brick thick walls so I am investigating having external wall insulation as I need to keep warm because of my heart trouble. Bristol Council is going all out to make the honour really count.
