Have spent this morning in hospital having injections in my back and this afternoon i spent in bed sleeping off all the sedatives. No gardening for me for a few days but hopefully will be able to go out and play a bit at the weekend. Head is definaltely a bit wobbley so excuse any spelling mistakes. See you all soon

I was given some pink fir apple. They are lovely. Missed some wneh i dug them up last year so had a lot of extra ones this. Have also tried osprey, not sure if they are early or main crop but they do have a lovely flavour.

I grew some a few years back and they take up an awful lot of room, they also went to seed very quickly. Decided to get rid of them which is easier said than done.Good luck

Got some sunshine and then cloudy its going to one of those days when it cant decide what to do. Had a lot of little plants arrive yesterday from Thompsons so o better pot them all up. I always seem to get them muddled up and wonder why the penstemons look like delphiniums one day i will learn not too. Happy Sunday everyone.

I get most of mine when Wyevale reduces them at the end of the season i think they eventually went right down to 50p a packet. And on magazines of course.

Talkback: Ladybirds

More ladybirds on the allotment mostly on the apple trees so hopefully they are just late in appearing.

Thankyou for your good wishes.Trying to have a blitz on the house today so i dont have to worry too much next week. Just seen the daughter off to music festival in Essex. I'm quite surprised i still have the kitchen sink she took so much stuff, but she reckons its just the basics. Think there is 10 of them going so they all went off in 2 vans and 2 cars. My idea of hell is camping far too near the floor for my liking.

Have got all the info from hospital, filled in i dont know how many forms and then to top the lot i have to go to a funeral tuesday afternoon. I know how to live ha ha. Hope to fit in a trip to the allotment over the weekend, the rain should have made the beans grow.

Have been to allotment this morning as the sun was shining and i was feeling reasonably ok. Picked loads of beans and a purple cauli that had decided to bolt. Very pretty and im sure my husband will ear it whatever it looks like.

 Heard last night that i have to go into hospital for the day next wedsnesday for some nerve block injections in my spine. Not looking forward to it but as its not as major as other things ive had done i will cope with a smile on my face. If it can stop some of the pain im in i will be happy.

Photinia Red Robin pruning?

Mine has gone mad this year so will need a good prune. Whenever im given flowers i use a few bits of red robin to bulk them out and then the flowers stay in place.
