How are the cut flower patches coming along? Much growth with this warm spell?

Have managed to have a few little vases for the last couple of weeks. Quite pleased! Tonight's offering...

Would really enjoy seeing repeats too.  I had a look at some Geoff Hamilton episodes on YouTube; very different intro music back then! It was an episode with a very young carol being interviewed! The content was really interesting and felt very relevant to me.

Hi Ice-twin, i like stone troughs planted up. Wooden barrels might go well with the wooden wheelbarrow though. Or how about planting up some old wellies or an old watering can? Hope you find what you're looking for!

What actually are Epsom Salts?   Where does the Epsom bit originate from?

Did you see how shiney and clean his tools were in the potting shed? Lucky chap!

Im going to come clean....I like traditional colour clashing hanging baskets! They make me smile! 

I agree, an aerial view with a little explanation would be fab.
