I love wallflowers, they are so easy to do from cuttings, next year you can take lots more and have plants forever,   After a couple of years they get leggy and woody so cuttings are the way to go. Fresh plants every year. I planted mine out yesterday, chopped the flowers off and the rain will bring them on. Roll on Spring.

Me too. Verdun, have you used the chopped off bits for cuttings, 3 in a pot even more room in the conservatory.


Arnt we lucky to have the space to be able to do this, I am so grateful to my parents for the oppertunity to live in this  beautiful bungalow and have free reign in the garden.

Remember me saying I couldnt fit the night bag? Needless to say, the district nurse had just been and said, you wont fit that on there, I know that, said I, so she changed the day bag for the one compatable, and yippee! No more getting up through the night to empty the small one.

Mum needs to go to the hospital tomorrow to get the results of her biopsy, that has set her back a bit now, but she is walking by herself, no frame, no stick which is very good for someone of her age that has laid in a hospital bed for 3 weeks, and had completely gone to pieces over all this.

Love your cat Digger, I can see he is very busy! I have a ginger one who is always run off his feet.

I love Monty, people say that the prog is no good for the smaller garden, but of course, you dont have to sow seeds or buy plants by the hundreds just scale it all down to your needs.

I would rather see Monty than all those dreaded cookery programmes that are on, all done for cheap so they dont need to pay top stars wages. Much better for the beeb if they just use members of the public to make a tv show.

For me , love him and Nigel, never liked box hedge but it means a lot to him and I was sorry he was upset about it.

Pouring here too, i desparately need to get out and do things.

Whats 'ironing'? I vaguely remember a very heavy thing si

tting in the back of a cupboard, everthing gets folded flat when it comes out of the machine and again as I get it off the line, never iron, except one top I have and OH white shirt only used for hatches, matches and dispaches.


My daughter used to iron everything, shes learning!

Nothing worse than the wrong trousers Panda!

Chicky, those cold frames are brill. 

I need to do things in the garden but Disrict nurse coming in to see mum and it will be sods law that I will just get mucky and she will come. And mucky I will get, everything is lagged and soggy.

Really bad night for wind and rain, part of our extension is flat roofed, rain sounds awful on it!

I will come to the garden centre with you Lizzie, could do with going out.

I have permanent free tickets for Eden project and Heligan and I really miss seeing the changing seasons there.

Greenhouse Gallery

That is a fantastic sized greenhouse and so clean and neat and tidy.

My greenhouse hasnt been empty at all this year, or any year really, I have 3 of them and 2 conservatories and they are permanently full. As soon as the summer bedding was out they had tomatoes, cucumbers and strawberries, then they were full of biennial seeds for next year,now full of perennial seedlings, all pricked out,  the conservatories full with fuchsia and geranium cuttings for next year, 

I need another greenhouse! I have bought new plastic covers for 2 of those that get shredded in the wind, the shelves are full already.


Harvested this today.
