Thats the way Doc, Insurance will buy you a nice new greenhouse. Take photo of the damage.

I hope you are a bit more cunning than our resident fox, day before yesterday he buried all the bird food, half a sausage and a meatball in the flower bed, in 4 different places, today he couldnt remember where he had put it and dug up half the border!

Me too Verdun, but not quite so early as yours, you are probably 2c warmer than here. Its more of a cold wind here and damp, most days in the clouds.

Thats really nice Tootles, its lovely to have the photos to look back on. I have one just bolted onto paving slabs, perfectly adequate.

Is there a comfy chair in there? Need something to sit on when you take your tea in there to get away from it all.

I start mine mid March indoors, here is a very good informative site, this is exactly what I do. If you follow this you will have a wonderful show right through till Autumn.Dead heading is very important to keep the flowers coming. I always pick off the first buds to enable the plant to put all energy into growing first.
