Realised bed surprise!

Evening all

Wanted to get a couple more raised beds but our local garden centres don't seem to have them in stock yet. What a lovely surpruse....got home today to find that my other half has built me one! It's pretty darn good too!! Very impressed and very happy! Can't wait to fill it! I love homemade kit!

Orphan ducklings!! That's sooooo cute!

Sounds like a lovely selection there Lesleyk.  Would love to know how the monarda gets on. Looks smashing.

Gardengirl, cut flowers are such a fab idea aren't they...hoping its a success.

Yep, I definately can't beat nature because my natural instinct is to get started so I've just obeyed myself!

Ooooh where have you ordered your seeds from LesleyK? What have you gone for?

I planted Zinnias, larkspurs, echinops, didiscus, scabiosa, double cosmos and dahlias.  All for my cut flower garden which I'm having a go at for the first time. Hoping to have enough flowers for a vase a week, and the odd bunch for family and friends. 

Woops!

Thank goodness it's not just me! These naughty plants falling into our cars and baskets need a good talking to!

Archie - baaaaargain!! Good on you! It is cheap Perki. Unwins seeds are £2.99 for 15.

Anywho, here are the little invaders tucked up in new homes.
