I've sowed some corncockles for the first time this year. Mine were sown into seed trays in a cold frame though and not directly into the ground.

Compost bins - tips welcome!

I've got a darlek one as I don't have a lot of space. Did get some compost out of it last year. It's in a sunny spot and I put a mixture of paper, veg scraps and garden waste into it.

I've taken cuttings here and hoping for the best. Picked mine up from a market last year and they grew into lovely shrubs

Got a couple of the bowles mauve type, bought them from a market last year.They have flowered their socks off for about 9 months, grew into lovely shrubs. Not looking so great now. I've got the purple coloured leaves and the buds on mine as well. I've hastily taken some cuttings, if they don't take I will definatley get some more and have a go at taking some cuttings next year

My primoses remain in tact and there's a few sparrows, it's the crocus that I find nipped off here

I'm happy that the smell of Spring is the air, the daffs are finally opening and  the grape hyacinths are popping up.
