Hi there, not really caught up from yesterdays busy day and evening. Went to local theatre to see 'Oliver' - son was sooo  excited and grandma had a sleepover - even more exciting! 

Been hoeing this morning once the rain stopped, it's nice and fresh out there. Had intended planting but decided to get rid of mini weeds first - good plan eh? 

Also found an old (well last year's misplaced) box of seeds. Couldn't understand where mum's poppy was she had promised me, turns out it was seeds not a plant! Also found a few labels, one of which I need to put on an ID thread.

Watching bits of Chelsea, then pottering and back to Chelsea (can't even sit still to watch it properly).

another message to clari from mrs knows nothing know it all...coops shouldn't be reused for a year to ensure there's no red mite infestation. Ot sure why a good scrub wouldn't be ok perhaps a question to ask the farm?

Plant ID, buddleia? One other.

Thanks nut, was a bit worried about the Budd, took loads of seedlings out last year but kept thinking this hasn't happened before, these are what were missed. I'll leave them and wait to see, where they are isn't getting any attention til next year. Will look up 2nd suggestion (too lazy to spell it!).

Looks like it panda! If they get done and enough pots!
Completely inspired by fidget!
But when I went to visit her I couldn't find anything at all to take for her!

OK helpers, here's my list of plants I might be able to divide and pot up for a car boot on 5 June, let me know what you think...

chives (is it a prob that they are in flower now?)

thyme, highland cream

sage, variegated

oregano, French golden

chocolate mint

geranium, 2 common varieties, low growing pink and taller purple




euonymus (already potted up), gold and yellow and green and white varieties

black grass, ophingonum (will need to look that up!)


purple flowered alpine with spikes leaves, see id thread, 

buddleia (unless it's something else!, also on I'd thread)

and seedlings:

marigold, firecracker

dianthus, baby doll

aubrieta, cheeky mix

cornflower, mixed

love in a mist

and some of my hordeum jubatum grass


phew! Sorry didn't think I had that much! Anyone want some? But mainly would anyone buy these at a car boot sale, the seedlings are still very tiny, how big should I make the divided plants, is there enough time for them to settle down by 5 June?

Ta folks.

Clari, I looked on eBay etc for chicken coops, around £120 for 3-5 chickens, reviews were ok but the ones 3+ times as much were much sturdier from what I could gather you may get what you pay for. Hope you get to touch and feel some before buying so you can make an informed decision, ps, you don't need an appointment for BVfarm just turn up I was told when I emailed her. Exciting, enjoy! Hmmm, think I might be able to meet up with you there perhaps...?

I think these are self seeded buddleias. Mature bud leaf laying between them. Pic not too good but same stems, just unsure about leaf.

Next one, an alpine I've had a few years but the name escapes me.

thanks so much.
