Pruning is the biggie at the moment Bizzie-my my green bin gets emptied every other week, and its always full! We are lucky here-the council provides us with a big green waste bin....but there is never enough room in it, and I have a compost heap too that seems to get bigger and bigger!! I've got lots of trees and shrubs that need thinning out this year, including a Berberis that thinks it is a Triffid-hubby complained bitterly because he got stabbed by the prickly bits when he cut it down Jobs for the weekend include digging two big holes for my Magnolias that are in pots, and putting fresh compost on my big planters, and giving all the plants a bit of a feed. The lovely weather is great, but my water butts do need filling now-all my pots are very dry, and I have to water the garden every day.

Talk about daylight robbery!

Well folks, the Gardeners World Mag is giving away 100 free Allium bulbs, you just have to pay the postage and packing(£5.95). That is a bargain

Its a bit like the start of the gardening year for me-I am now itching to get moving stuff around and planting bulbs.........I can't wait, and I get excited when the bulb catalogues start arriving!!! How sad is that!! Another lovely day-its a shame that I had to go to work when I could be gardening

I have 2 Magnolia that are in huge pots that I would like to put into the ground-would it be OK for me to do this now, or should I wait until they have lost their leaves? They are really quite big, and I'm worried about them getting pot bound.

A Senior Moment.

Oh no..I'm going to have to go and buy more seeds now!!!!!!!!!! I pick my Sweet Peas regularly and put them by the bed. Going to sleep with the scent in my nostrils is wonderful. Also get a wonderful waft from the honeysuckle by the French windows.Fidget, if I get seeds now then, is it best to get them in ready for next year?
