Morning everyone, it's grey and damp here. So not sure if I'll be going outside,just when I was getting into it. Hope Wonky is feeling better.

I bury leggy stems all the time Busy Lizzie, I think the cosmos would be fine

Spring bulbs - what to do with ones I have found?

I'd plant them, that's not that long to be hanging about

What are your favourite scented plants?

Those little flowers pack a punch, they are meant to be good for moths too Mine were always a bit of hit and miss, but last year worked a treat.

I've not long sown my first night scented stock Hefty, going to try and do repeat sowings so the fragrance lasts longer. OH has got a living wall idea going on near the back door might try and get some to take there just so it's easy to smell them

Had lots of success with fresh seed sown direct last year

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

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

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!
