I have just potted 2 bulbs up and brought them indoors until they show some shoots. The perfume when they flower is just gorgeous I put 2 bulbs into about a 7" pot just in multipurpose compost

Good Evening

What a miserable day it has been -rain,rain and a bit more rain.

I did the food shopping this morning and the ironing molehill this afternoon - no gardening today  Both propagators are full to the brim with pots and trays of seeds - I was going to prick out the peppers,chillies and aubergines but after hearing the weather forecast I decided to leave them for a few days .

Hello sparklygardener  We have opened our garden 5 times now and all being well will open again on July 21st this year

I had a nose in my yellow book and your garden sounds really lovely - probably the exact opposite style to ours though  We are no.44 in Surrey in the yellow book .

Whoever visited your garden and accepted you into the NGS must have loved it - as will your visitors I am sure

I was very nervous the first time we opened and a bit worried as to whether our visitors would like our garden. I needn't have worried - it was great to chat with people and we had some lovely comments.We had a visitors book .

Cakes and Tea are a VERY important part of the day

Make good use of your advertising pack and tell as many people as you can about your Open Days .It will be hard work but you will enjoy it so much - and raise  money for charity

I see we will be opening on the same day in July - I would love to hear how you get on - please keep me posted

Thankyou for looking

Flower bird- have a look at the roots of your plants and if they look strong and healthy I would be tempted to pot them on to the next size pot - there are still a few weeks to go before we can plant them out.If the pots aren't full of roots maybe you could give them a feed
