Posted: 26/12/2012 at 15:35

Hi there,

Am just beginning to get my head around seeds, thanks to a seed organiser box pressie, think I need another box though

These seeds are commercially packaged, that I had in bounty bags from Garden shows, Some seed may be old 

Sweet peas -Spencer special mix

Candytuft 'Fairy mix'  - 4 packs

Pansy 'Clear crystal Mix' - 2 packets

I would like some Evening Primrose and Garden girl would love some of you white campion seeds, if possilble

I also have some hollyhock -own collection- creme de cassis and a deep red single (I hope)

Cyclamen hederofolium- white

Lobelia 'Queen Victoria' - perenial - (not many)

A seed mix of cornflower, nigella, poppy, and others I think (own seed)


What's the weather like in your area?

Was dry enough to plant a few fruit bushes and strawberries, then the rain came a little so I cotinued, came in for lunch (smoke salmon sarnnies) and now the heavens are emptying again.

No sales for me, but maybe a trip to GC next week as I have a token

Spent mornng planting fruit bushes and strawberry plants supplied by a generous forum member 

I have raspberries that are just heeled in -  not sure where to put them and need weather to prepare a new bed for them.

Wheelbarrow still in kitchen, well can't get wet can it  I have a long thin kitchen so room to cook prepare etc without moving the pink thing. OH wonders how many people keep wheelbarrows in kitchen Ho Ho

Just watched Mr Stink, Enjoyed

Now its pouring with rain so pleased I managed garden before the real onslaught, Don't think I've ever gardened on Boxing Day before.

Morning everyone.

Recovering from yesterday and 2 days ago. Still trying to remember why we had Christmas on Sunday as yesterday mornrnig the house was full of the family opening pressies. I did have to supply daughter with a steamer, pudding basin!! and my hand held food mixer so she could cook her dinner. Was fine until i came to make yorkshire pud for our beef, - no food mixer!!Ho Ho

Clean up will be a slow affart as I have some fruit bushes that need heeling in, and garden always takes 1st place.

Don't think I want to dirty my wheelbarrow though
