Morning all.

Slight frost overnight, but sun out now and warming up.

Lots of planting out of seedlings today, with the lawns to mow later, should keep me off the streets.

Winter, pink and yellow can work, just look how many plants have both together on the same flower.

I quite enjoyed the Chelsea challenge, if only to see how I would not design a garden.

Frost damage

Fatsias are not 100% hardy. I often get frost damage on my mine and it always seems to recover, with no special help from me.

A mans work is never done, gardening most of day, despite the weather.

Now got dinner to cook, some new seasons lamb cutlets.

Finally need to run the hoover round.

OK, one of those is a lie!

Be careful what you wish for!

Started applying nematodes and biblical rain started, now look like a drowned rat, but at least the nematodes should be watered in.

Morning all.

Typical Spring day, rain, sun and wind.

Watered pots and need to water on some nematodes to attack my slugs, waiting for a bit more rain first.

have not seen new gardening prog. yet, don't like instant makeovers, but do like a good design and seeing the plants, will I'm sure be fun.
