The pictures aren't as large as they were and I can't enlarge them on laptop. Miss being able to do that

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

It's been a beautiful day Potted on lots of small plants, divided some speedwell that I just bought as well as some large clumps of primoses. Took some more penstenmon cuttings. Have done lots of watering and moving things about.


I have quite a bit of that green stuff on top of the compost as well. Very annoying. Pots that were in my mini greenhouses seem to get more of it.

Bowles Mauve wallflowers are lovely, flower continually and need very little care. Just trim off the spent flowering stems and they just keep growing new ones

Slugs and snails are the most likely culprit, any slime about?

But Hollie Hock, that isn't a border, it was the garden pond. I can't be bothered with it ever since a friend's labrador punctured the liner when he thought he'd go for a swim.


See original post

 Ha ha Would never have guessed! Looks very natural

Nothing at all wrong with pic 1 Busy Lizzie, looks like a full lush boarder to me. Love pot storage area, they just seem to do that all by themselves. As for the palletts and black sheeting, that would be my partners work in progress


Sad story about the wrens. The babies are so small. When we lived on the farm I saw some that had just fledged. The cats were kept in for a while to give them a chance, so tiny.

Clematis - can I prune now to stop growth?

Is something sleeping in my geraniums?

Might be, it definatley looks an animal has either slept or run into it. That must be lovely to watch
