I bought a few plants from a garden centre that's closing down. Now about to make a cuppa and get the big book out to look up what I have bought!  I love buying random plants as every now and then it results in discovering a new favourite that I'd never have normally purchased.

Wow Bob. That's a lot of garlic! 

I emptied a bed and rearranged it all. Lovely autumn sunshine.

Is that the pale stuff out of tins? I recall it as a child. With vinegar!

I don't change the soil in my pots.

I use out of date seeds.

I don't clean my water butts out.

I eat fresh custard out of the tub when no one is looking.

Overwintering Chilli's

Good luck with it. I'm going to give it a go too. I find that I never seem to have a long enough growing period for my chillies to turn red.  I bought a birds eye chilli plant from Chilli Bobs and it was and still is covered in chillies. He said to over winter it in a warm and bright spot, not to over water.

What a beauty Hellebore. That must be a glorious site.

Im eagerly waiting for my Kanzan to turn but it's stubbornly keeping its green.

I love this time of year.
