Are you trying to store the begonia tubers? If they are going mouldy they are probably to damp. 

Petrol Hedge trimmer

I can only recommended the expensive hedge trimmer kawasaki / stihl , but you can pick them up second hand for a reasonable price. I've had a few 2nd hedge trimmers and they all been very reliable.

I wouldn't get one with blade to long, they can get heavy when held out doing top of an hedge.

Lucky you VS looks a good plot, I sure you can recycle some of the junk. Lots of wood for a compost bin there

Got out this afternoon in the garden planting 15 giant allium bulbs ( orange size ) that took quite a while, kept finding large places of concrete .

Filled wheel borrow with annuals/ etc ready for the compost bin which is already full.

Moved the odd plant. Then a had a moment  decided I was going to move two lilys and some lucifer crocosmias, for some unknown reason I thought I had dug the lilys out until I heard the dreaded crunch  not only did I chop one but both of them, then I heard another crunch while inspecting the lily damage, just stood on the crocosmia bulbs I just dug out .

Mange to get some bulbs planted today tulips and dwarf daffs. And made up some winter pots, still got all my alliums to plant and other various bulbs. Was hoping to do more bulb planting but I always seem to get visitors when I am trying to do something, good excuse to go and put ketllle on though.

Looks like everyone been getting their bulbs planted but for me  I got so many to plant still, I must do some tomorrow.

It hasn't forecast rain tomorrow for a change, had a good covering of snow Friday morning - thunder / lighting two nights on the trot, then heavy rain back to snow / hailstone  no wonder I haven't planted majority of my bulbs yet.   

Had 60 dwarf daffodil bulb delivered yesterday ( offer on here last week ) some cupani sweet peas and two free packs of seed and delivered for a grand total of £6.65
