We can share mine if you like fishy, always too many seeds in a packet.

I bought cheap bulbs from Parkers year before last, they did well the year I planted them but they were far better last year. Parkers do say they are better in their second year, I am trying to decide whether to try one more year or put them in the garden.

I have placed more orders with Parkers, so maybe wont risk it in the tubs, each time you place an order you get free packets of bulbs.

I have also bought 2 bags of mixed daffs from Morrison, 3.00 per bag, I have had these before and are good.

I dont do cuttings but have just sown some seeds and they are up already.

Hedge problem

It would do even better if you cut it right down to a foot, it will shoot out right from the bottom and be nice and thick all the way down.

Have I overdone it?

I have cut the grass today, my remedy has been 2 dihydrocodeine, 1strong anti inflamatory, and 2 paracetamol with aspirin and codeine, plus a hot bath, i dont feel much better but I am rattling well.

Very hardy, Fishy.

Glad they arrived ok Perki, we are all going to have magnificent gardens next year, between us we can restore the bee population.

Fairygirl, do you keep the marsh marigold in a pot or does it free float?

I had a dead black beetle and 2 dead bees, does that count as wildlife?!!

However, I had the most beautiful really bright green dragonfly flitting around on the stones, please dont tell me they are the most common type

I was just thinking tonight that until my mum had her last set back about 2 months ago and lost her confidence that we had always, always, done shopping together, seems strange now going on my own, but I cant see her ever going out again, she hasnt even been to look at the garden this year.

My 90 year old dad, however, is taken up with the new pond, he loves it, and goes down there to sit on the chair we put for him


Overgrown garden

Definitely mens wee, 

I have seen strawberries planted in washing machine drums.

I grew the durham greens , sowed this time last year, my patch is still full of them, I picked the outside leaves off for Spring greens Fr

oze loads and now they are turning

 into gorgeous cabbages. Well worth their money, you will need a very close insect net and frame over them or caterpillars will have them.

Good luck with your little plot.
