Good job I got started early today as it is now raining steadily in Bristol and by the looks of the sky is here for some time. The postman brought me my latest plants from Mr Fothergills - pot grown garlic plants to be tested for bolting as against autumn planted and spring planted and earlier pot plants we received. I have never seen better plants - still damp and carefully handed over by the postman the right way up! If necessary I will don my raincoat to plant them out in the potager as no frost is forecast for tonight. In the meantime I am cleaning the windows and shelves in the conservatory.and removing the spiders webs from the corners, picking off the brown leaves on the pelargoniums and pruning where needed . I found the first two flowers on my bougainvillea and let out such a cheer. No matter how dull and damp the day, my plants find ways to cheer me.
