Garden spending is so much more fun chicky. 

I could easily make room for another. Are you just starting new compost in each  or are you moving it between the bins?

Matty, got our first proper compost out of Monty (thats what it's called here) last year and it's been put to use on our first veg beds. On seeing gardengirls picture I begin to think that maybe/definately have space of another one.

That will keep you busy chicky, I bought offers like in the past and they are tiny

 

propagation boasts and failures

Cotty,I sowed my scabious seeds outdoors in a cold frame this year, not had a great germination rate, but here everything seems about a month behind where they were last year. I'm growing the annual types.

Quite a few of last year scabious, by some miracle made it through the winter, grew into tall plants with a lot of flowers and I did see butterflies on them

Good going on the ceanothus, Arid Al, the new jasmine plant sounds beautiful. How long did the berry take to germinate? I went to a garden last weekend and they had a beautiful jasmine, I smelt it long before I found it

Overgrown rockery

Can you dig out what you want to keep in clumps? Maybe separate the plants you want as best you could, replant them after a good water and then the blitz the rest?
