Lawn Aerator Shoes

I think they are  a bit dangerous Tina, I can foresee a nasty accident with them

There was a thread last year about them, type Aerating shoes in the search box.

Pricking out seedlings

If you think they are a bit leggy just pop them deeper into the compost so they are just above the first pair of leaves that popped out.

Snapdragons you leave in the garden, they are only annuals anyway, although you can get a couple of years out of them, you can sow new seeds in the Spring for nice new ones.

If your fuchsias are the hardy type plants in the garden, they will be fine out, don't  cut them down at all and put a nice pile of compost or similar over them, if they are the tender ones, can you bring them into a cold greenhouse or conservatory.

You could take some cuttings now of your favourites just in case.

South facing gardens are usually the warmest, they get most of the sun through the day.

Dove, I am so glad it's working out just right with Wonky, what a rush about!

we have wall to wall sunshine as well, I wish you could have had this week here, it's been beautiful, next year book it a week later 

I have lots of old gardening Mage, but I have made a very dear friend on here that I now pass them onto. (having read them again first) 

Shopping today, I have had to go out this week everyday but one, usually only go out once to Morrisons.

Hoping everyone has a lovely day, and the poorly ones helped by the lovely weather.

Should have said ...don't peel the courgettes. Just chop ends off and grate.

I mix mine in with the compost heap too. I don't use grow bags, but if I did I would.
