Great foxgloves G Donkey,most of mine got eaten. I've sown wallflowers, some purple honesty and some catananche recently. I've not tried pinching pinching foxgloves out, most things get bushier

What is this weed ?

Argh! That's creeping buttercup, get it out quick! I used to have a lot of this in one garden. I dug a lot of it out but still had to go behind and use a topical weedkiller

Hi Cloggie, glad to have been of help. I think the brown checked colour scheme is due for a bit of a  revivial. There's a 3 seat G plan sofa under the purple cloth too

Best sofa pp, I'll take a pic of the other one once we've got in there

Just re read my last sentance, someone might get a bit of surprise if they opened it, or is that just me?

I'm intrigued by the bunk beds as well and will have to give Cloggies scarecrow a longer look

All so funny KEF love the before and after picture, the spuds are looking healthy. Good spotting kitty on the bamboo sticks I had to look for a while to find them.

A few from me, sticking to the no tidying before pic rule

The summer house which was going to be used for relaxation

It looks a bit like a type of phacelia that I'm trying to grow here.

Courgettes - anyone put theirs out yet?

I sowed late here Zoomer and only 2 germinated. I've just potted them up into small pots in the mini greenhouse

Lovely, thanks for the picture. My grandads house had returning swallows and swifts

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 31/05/2016 at 20:23

GWRS and Michael. Poor germination from those trays with the green stuff, just water added. I think it must be a combination of wet soil and strong sunlight? Maybe? Once it started it's a real pain, it's really hard to judge how wet the soil is and seeds really struggle to get through it.

Not much done in the garden apart from boxing up some for market tomorrow, hope I sell them, I'm needing the space
