spent nearly the whole day on the lawn, removing quite large parts of turf  I didnt deem good enough and reseeding, and trying to level parts which takes ages it gets really tedious after a while.

Moved the barrel with the canna in next to the house to shelter from tomorrows weather.

And picked my first bunch of grapes  pity about the seed pips though.

I got an email like a newsletter off T&M telling me about the offer. I clicked through the email to get the offer. I tried getting the offer going straight to T&M website but I couldnt get it. I have had look a the email and there is a code at the bottom ( TNE592Z ) hopefully this might solve the problem. ignore it when its says seeds are £0.00. 

I bought with my order 2X trailing petunias purple - strelitzia - nicotiania sylvestris - tomatoes G delight / suncherry - ricinus - pennisetum glaucum purple - salvia blaze of fire - lobelia white

I just bought 10 packs of seed off TandM for £10 I thought it were a gimmick at first. My 10 packs come to £35.90 good saving of £25.90

Not much outside today rained most of the day but ventured to the GC to get a shrub I fancied physocarpus diablo , I sneak in a couple extra fritillaria as well

Potted on a 10 delphiniums into bigger pots just waiting for the other 15 to grow a bit more, I have no idea where I am going to plant them though  but you can never have to many delphiniums  Potted on other various perennials for planting out in spring. Winter pansys are well on there way so repotted some of them just another 100 or so to go.

Antirrhinium will live through a mild winter but I pull them out, they will self seeds as well but probably not where you want them. I sow seeds around March time
