Oh Boy

I thought you were doing well as there was no news off you.

From my own experience you need to say how it is affecting you as well - I'm sure you do though

I just can't say more than everyone else has I am so sorry and sad for you

Just hugs and all the best - my many thoughts are winging their way to you - be strong and positive for me please.

Look after yourself as best yu can

Love Bjay x

Looking through my plants I have nothing frothy (except the grass) so am going to have a go at annual Gypsophilia.

AND OH hasn't noticed yet but there is a small seed tray of Larkspur tucked away in the fridge Shhhhhh!!!

Hello

Lots of advice today - now I've slept on it I'm quite happy with my decision.

I have vacuumed - not done anything as strenuous since Christmas Didn't hurt or feel tired but am resting between bursts of energy

(oh yes vacuuming has been done by others )

Hoping to sow some seeds later, Gypsophilia (annual) otherwise nothing gardeney planned

Hi saw this question else where.

I have  one inside my GH that keeps plants over wintering extra warm. It is now being filled up with seedlings (potted on ones). And I pull the front cover down at night at the moment. Come the warmer weather I will take the plastic cover off and use it as shelving inside. 

The one inside I do insulate the base by putting a couple of layers of bubble wrap under the lowest shelf.

I have a small one outside, but have given up on covering it so just use the shelves for the 'nearly there' small plants

Look out in places like Wilkinson for their offers - my inside one 120cm wide cost £10 on one of its offers.

Just feel awful, but not really, some relatives have tried to invite themselves here for Sunday abut i don't want to share, not this time, never said no before. Hope you get my drift.

Quite like the idea of  Clem. Gravytye Beauty - it's red. Will put one up front wall to cover the ceanothus when it's finished flowering for  interest.

 

Night all - need to rest - and you bekkie

Hello

I see lots of cake making, paper shuffling and loads and loads of gardening has been done.

All I have done is pot on some more seedlings and moved a couple of trays into the GH.

Also a bit of chaos sorting out what visitors will sleep on. Cleaned some ancient toys up as well to keep little one entertained.

Tree was delivered, arrived in back of a van which had a sun roof type affair on top with tree sticking out of it - result no damage at all to tree-. planting at weekend

Have felt really well today - hopefully will just keep improving now.

I've just bought my 2nd lot of Larkspur seeds, first lot seem to be doing nothing - internet check and found they will not germinate if temp above 65* - where they were on window ledge was right in the sun so...

Now put 1st lot in cool house and will sow 2nd lot and follow internet instructions

Hope other novice cutting gardeners find this useful

I have a bush type one Salix Flamingo - think it's down to pruning - Verdun is the expert

If that pergola doesn't arrive it's because I've 'borrowed' it - I have a vine but nothing to grow it up
