Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Posted: 02/10/2016 at 20:05

Forked the lawn last night so ready for today.

Popped to GC this morning picked up a J anemone Q charlotte - couple of trays of winter bedding and a pennisetum, few more bulbs and some grit to sit the giant allium bulbs on which arrive the other day. 

Got back to top dress the lawns and overseed.

Could do with some more plants though, anyone know any online suppliers having a sale? 

How come your taking your dahlias and canna out already Johnny? I tend to leave them until the end to get every last bit out of them.

I know they dont like to be moved but the heleniums are out competing it. its not so big at the moment. I havent really got anywhere else to put the heleniums, the slugs keep demolishing delephimiums in one area, that why I am think of planting the baptisa there. I will reassess before i take the plunge

I thought it was just me  I get really pushy. I wait all year for the plants to do their thing, then suddenly I want it to get over and done so I can start messing around again, always thinking for next year.

I do keep myself restrained I been wanting to move a baptisa all summer, as soon as it starting going dormant I be moving it to its new home. I've got loads of plans of moving this and that everywhere and of course getting new plants . Last year wootens did a October sale so think of getting just one or two plants  or 10 .

I am amazed you mange to see the bees VS, it was covered in a swarm of bees the butterflys / bumble bees were going equally mad for eupatorium .  Its hard to believe I bought the helianthus last year as a plug plant now its huge.

Unfortunately the blue skies weren't today FG

That's the same reason I am think of trying giganteum. I got mount everest and gladitor from lidl last year and i got a few more this year very cheap £1.69 for 2 bulbs or £3 for 4 bulbs  v good bulbs as well. Giganteum are quite expensive where did you get your from Andy?
