I had my GH put on a concrete slab , No real problems with it.

I had it made about 3 ft longer than GH so I now have a place to put pots etc when moving them in and out of GH. etc

Good Day

Grim weather here today.

Just considering lighting burner as brrrrr - but that could be down to the all pervading dampness!

have done some garden thinking and ordered plants off Crocus (20% off) usually find it covers the postage - some perennials for the white bit to fill in some gaps.

Bulb order has come as well - mostly tulips, now where do I plant them?

Sorry to hear some aren't too good, weather doesn't help., but if you are where there is sun well............. get well soon

Wish list for seed and plant swap

I was wondering if anyone has any seeds to spare of the white perennial sweet pea.

I have just found there is such a thing and would like to grow a plant

Sun has just come out

Will go and plant my bergenia I think then possibly the pansy pot.

Persuaded OH that we really needed  to drive via a nursery today on the way to butchers.

Purchased some very bright pansies for a pot and a wish list Bergenia 'Bressingham White'(white garden) I know they are a bit thuggish but it's just what's needed and easy to split and spread about next year

Think I will plant it straight away and also need to finish getting in Begonias - didn't seem this many when I put them out in late spring

Pansy that happened to me with a survey about bottled water - all the same to me - some sparkles, some doesn't, taken into a nearby hotel and still can't remember why????

I have taken 20 trailing perlargonium cuttings today. New territory to me. they are now feeling warm in the downstairs loo - Wikihow said not in full sun, so downstairs loo!

Also sorted a couple of containers, but haven't planned them this year so it's a case of just plonking stuff available in and hoping for the best

Thanks for that Top bird, garden needs compost and I don't need the sieving!

Did find a kitchen knife in the one being filled the other day, have lost my best secateurs. Makes me wonder what turns up in the council green waste places!
