Lovely, thanks  Forester. Happy Christmas, I'll send you a mincepie

Oven on, allowance made for mine running at 30C higher than it says on the dial. I wondered why I kept burning things when I first had this oven. Then I bought an oven thermometer. It's a very nice oven once that's sorted out

We've had several threads re shade plants over the last year. I can't remember what any were called. If anyone can remember, and find them, they might bring Deb some cheer

Just moved - horrible garden

It will be a different garden Deb, but there's something that will grow in all situations and drainage can be improved.

Don't try and recreate what you had, that will lead to disappointment. Look around and see what grows well in other gardens  around there. See what's there already. You may get more sun than you would expect from looking at it now, winter solstice time. Herbs can be grown in pots if the ground is too heavy for them, herbs do well in pots.

Can we have a few pictures

All secure here as far as I can tell though I haven't done the grand tour yet. A bit brain dead due to wind keeping me awake. Not much rain, 9mm

Will have to do a veg trip to MrSainsbury. I would have gone yesterday but it was horrible out there, wet, windy and muddy. The last is down to the constant passage of sugar beet lorries, which take up most of the width of the road and drive off road when they meet one coming the other way, 

I hope we haven't too many casualties on the forum.
