Yes Lilacs smell beautiful, was chatting to OH about getting a lilac here

You know those little basket Jasmines you see around this time of year about, can they be planted outside?

Snap Hefty as soon as saw this thread, these plants are what I thought of. Beautiful scent that fills the evening air

Trying to grow scented honeysuckle and would like some jasmine too.

I heard the sponge idea too, thought it sounded like it could work well. The ice cube is a new one on me

Oh no Newbee, sorry to hear that! I'm sure some will come up and a lot you can tell what plant they are as soon as they start growing. It's not to late to start over either

That does seem to be the way Bob. Good find though!

Weeded, tidied and blood fish and boned 2 other beds. Have quite enjoyed this job. Found the other aquilegia that I planted last year, divided and potted up some shanta daisies and sat by a small bonfire 

Morning coffee with a robin sounds a great way to start the day Bluebell. This is the first year that I'm feeding the soil in any way so hoping the plants appreciate it.

Do it Tootles, no one wishes they spent more time at work

More haste less seeds!

That's a good idea Dove, I'll have to ask OH if we have scales. He does all the cooking

Thanks Hosta, not sure if we have any kitchen scales here, not really a cook. I did one of my flower beds today but looking at what's left I think I might have been a bit light handed with it.
