It may have gone red because it needs a bigger pot.

Plant now or in spring?

I did a similar thing, made cottage garden borders from the lawn. Where grass has been, the ground will be very low in nitrogen and other nutrients, I started digging in November, dug all the weeds and grass out, made the edges good then piled on loads of comost, then

 in the early spring some bone meal, then I planted up..


I would advise you to spend from now till spring doing all the prep work, by then you will see how many plants you have, what you still want and what spaces you will have for some annuals. Dont rush, the more prep work, the better the borders.

A mental care person and a West Country lass, will you be my friend, I need all the help I can get at the moment, my mums in Derriford. I have a lot of seeds read to go.

I have a packet of Aster seeds I think, loads of different foxgloves and delphiniums plus several others.

Forester, I  noticed a pretty peach callendula back along, if there 

are anymore spare I would love some of those, also your blue lupins.


As I have been a bit busy lately with mum, if I have forgotten anyone, please remind me,

attached itself to the floating oxygenators

My water soldiers had four babies and I have a tiny snail, some water boatmen, diving black beetles and thousands of gnat larvae.

I have phoned the hospital, just as I said, catheter in, loads of fluids via a drip, the stoma has worked of its own accord, thank goodness for that, that was my main worry.

They want to keep her in for a couple of days to get the fluid levels up and then want to do a kidney test, they said there can be a 'kidney injury' when they get so dehydrated.

thank you everyone.

That will be little green caterpillars just search and pick them off. Remember to put them on the bird table.

What a great shame, that Elton Safety has a lot to answer for. How did we all survive back then, climbing trees whacking conkers, digging holes, eating mud pies that we proudly made.....
