Well it looks like I've finished for the day, that's reduced next months plant fund! Not happy at all. But there are lots if positives to finishing early on a nice day aren't there?
Anything happened today that I need to look back on or reply to? (getting terrible at keeping up n scared cos verduns gonna test me!).

Good morning.
Lovely sunshine.
Got to go and earn some plant money today.
Fingers crossed for your garden party BL, all will be great , just the weather needs a bit of a talking to!
Only skimmed through so far last nights posts but thanks so much for encouragement on re training but first gotta work out how to fund it...brings me straight back to square one (get a proper job!).
Went to schools car boot sale last night, bought parsley 30p, bamboo 30p and a Salix nekamurana yezoalpina (sorry for the language so early in the morning!) - looks interesting and the lady told me its quite rare, bit of googling confirmed that. Will post some pics when pc mended!

Eremurus, my fault for not asking advice early enough and them being greedy on space. Watch this space next year though!

Eremurus problem

Ah ok thanks both of you, remember planting deep but must have done as instucted on the packet so maybe not. I'll move it somewhere quoted, got lots waiting to spread in that area.

Thanks for your wishes guys. It's just nice to have some inspiration workwise, I'll keep you posted how I get on. Still trying to write a cover letter for cv, you know the one that goes - choose me, a 27 year old, I'm way better than a newly qualified, I live in the real world- hmmm, needs a bit more work!

clari, I had a free hearing test at boots, went ok. I went......

stacey, glad to hear about your holiday. 

And kef, what a novel place for a GH, in the garage!

gardens filling out, have put some pics on gallery. Thought I needed more height but think I actually might benefit from some low ground cover sort of separating plants. Saw this on possibly gallery thread, forgot to comment or who it was but think it was a newbie...


Eremurus problem

I've just discovered a hidden eremurus between two large poppies.

is there anything I can do to help it out a bit?

Sorry, i couldn't get a decent photo. the two buds are dry and shrivelled to look at, but not to feel. One is damaged and bent over (See the right of pic 2). I have tied back the poppies to give it more light but should I do anything else?
