Looking good Becks, hope you've been cashing in on the free labour or have you been doing it while Jess has been at school?

Okay, just read that back and it sounds very stalkerish... 

I'm not stalking you Becks honest.

You can tell St Austell Asdas' new cleaner is gardener because all the plants in the foyer are now watered, before they were just left till alost dead and then reduced to 10p with an oops sticker on them.

It may just be me, or i didn't notice last year but (not to sound like Asdas PR dept) but they have really ramped up on the gardening front. The store in St Austell has an outside cage that is full of spring flowers and shoots ready for summer flowering and they are reasonably priced.

They have also invested in garden decoration i.e. Decorative bark three 70L bags for £10.

Are superstores going to start to take over the local garden centres like they have with local convenience stores?

only time will tell.

Hi guys, 

Been busy over the weekend randomly digging stuff. If anyone needs some bark chippings go to Asda 3, 70L bags for £10.

Been putting off buying new plants because of the suprise frosts, randomly dropped to -1 last night 5c below the weather mans prediction.

Cornish weather is the stranges thing, absolutly hounding it down in Truro, dry as a bone in St Austell. But anyway.

Asda is the place to go at the moment for bark chippings, 3, 70L bags for £10

What a productive day, one minute I was sat with a pint of tea looking at the stinging nettles starting to grow in the shabby corner of the garden, then the next I had a shovel out digging it all up to put a weed proof membrane down ready to put some decorative bark down.

Finished the 'bistro' area just in time for winter to return, just need to put up some herbs and some lavender and wait for the summer to hopefully return.

I hate brambles, my now shredded jeans hate brambles and my poor back hates bramble roots. How bloody deep do they go?

Spring is no doubt in the air here in Cornwall even though I was mowing the lawn in woolly gloves and hat.
