I'm looking for help and inspiration with this idea please.

i have 3 tubs next to each other. All empty at the moment. I like the idea of bulbs for spring, fushias for late summer (hardy fushias so the tubs last and are not disturbed) I also have some lavender cuttings I could use...

but what can I plant now for...

1) between spring and late summer , and

2). For autumn? Maybe winter ?

I've still got an obsession with the alliums, they'll probably still be there when next years push up alongside them!

Lobellia starting to flower, New un-named grass in front of it. Sticks behind mark where I've just planted 9 more, yes you've guessed it - allium bulbs!

I think there were some in garden when we moved in 11 years ago, but lost them so it's possible.

I got it wrong with the's absolutely roasting.

Still managed to dig deep to plant new alliums. Found a couple of tubors,( how do ya spell that?) posted for confirmation of what they are.

. Tulips to plant next, oh, might go to GC first as got 3 tubs to plant for spring onwards , again your ideas welcome.

I saw a GW programme last year/year before about layering pots for all year round. Mainly about how deep to plant and in what order, but can't find it in old GW mags so will have to try what levels right or wait four you lovely peeps to instruct me.

Hey, sounds like you lot have pinched my sun! Dull here, quite cool as well.

Enjoy my part of the world Stacey.

Happy gardening and buying everyone who can. Feel for you addict, but once it's done .... there's always more.

Not sure what I'm doing today, hopefully avoid family bike ride and get in garden instead.

Found  a new garden programme to watch, Around the world in 80 gardens. Already on episode 5 but will record the last 5. Has anyone seen the first 5? Any good? Half watching recording from this morning but so far every time I look up there's concrete (USA this episode).

Thanks V. They are outside and had been lost and forgotten about. I'll pot n pinch. Echinacea seeds had also gone missing when they did nothing but now look like there's possibly some growth - will look after these as well until it becomes clear that they are not echinaceas but i  fact weeds! Never managed them in the past so why would anything change now?

Night all.
