Nope, not gonna work as a propagator, all sides open. Pos as a very ugly plant support?

Hi Edd, liked your sieve suggestion for the old ironing board but OH had already thrown it out,. Now have the frames from those cheap plastic drawer things. So a square of plastic on little legs. Think this may be a of a tough one for you! (explanation not very good but hoping it's enough!).(a quick google of argos plastic drawer tower may help)

Dove and Lily  - just this minute moved mine ( it's in a pot) to outside my window - looks great for now. I was thinking about growing sweet peas up it, then I can leave it where it is through summer as well (it's very heavy to move but hide it away each summer!).

Sedum maintainance help required

Looks great Panda! I'd rehome the beast in the bottom right and plant a nicely behaved alternative.

Exhausted! and a little more errr hot (no!) damp (no!) anyway more hard working than a lady should be!

Couldn't get the fire to stay alight (what a girl!) so all broken and piled up to think about later. FIL may come and help tomorrow with fire. Anyone any idea who to contact to remove the stuff - just need a 'man with a mucky van', willing to make a couple of trips to the tip for cheap!

Veg beds dug over, not that I have much intention of growing anything edible... may let FIL play there, he is the opposite to me and can't understand why anyone would grow something they can't eat! He used to have an allotment until the last 2 yrs or so now just grows in his small garden.

Cricket, trampolining and basketball played.

Stumpery rearranged and now renamed as Twig Forest!

Lily - you can have my twisted hazel, it's blinkin ugly in summer!

Matty - will take a look it sounds interesting.

Edd - if youre about ive got a recycling dilemma for you

FG - site n soil nothing special over winter, euphorbia planted in sun for summer , ok bit of a risk with primula in summer may be dry, was gonna watch for it n move it but winter shouldn't have been a prob??

Anyway, massive buddleias chopped down to 6ft now!

While the OH is away I can play, chosen game - a fire! Oh no always been job of OH! Got an old oil drum so I'm off with matches and firelighters - may see you later....
