I went on that tour about a million years ago ( over 30 anyway ) Fairy. Thought it seemed familiar.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I emptied out some  dead primulas and squished vine weevil grubs.

To early to prune Buddlias and Roses ?

Buying online

Mercifully I can still buy wholesale from my old suppliers which keeps the cost down. Downside is they're all in Surrey so need to make a special trip.

Evening all. 

Sorry Steve, but I think Dove's lunch sounds yummy. Is it the egg bit which is subbed for black pudding, or black pudding with the egg in the middle? Either way sounds tempting.
