Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 08:50
Thanks Hosta. I'm absolutely rubbish at working out what to plant in front of things though and never seem to get the balance right. I'd like to use the wall as a fitting backdrop, will need some structure to break it up too.
Lots to plan. It was quite easy to do as the ground is so soft at the moment.

A Gardener's Hands

It's the finger nails I struggle with. Looking at mine now (as I wait for the delayed train for work) they are awful, and all around them they are messy. Tricky when you work in an office where no one else seems to enjoy gardening and there is lots of pointing at plans etc. so fingers regularly on display.

Had a fab day in the garden yesterday. Dug out a new bed. Room for more plants!!

Narrow at 15 inches, so manageable, but 11m long.

I am going to get some edging. Has anyone tried any? I found a company called Everedge that does a steel version.


 I bet this photo comes out upside down - at the point of sending it is the right way up!

Beaten by the light again. 

Cleaned the greenhouse roof. So much brighter now.

Potted on foxgloves, lupins and ami. 

Gave one of the cold frames a good scrub. 

Off to get ready now for a lovely meal with friends in Stamford. Going for Nepales. Yum!

Curious - what do you think?

Is a professional gardener without a garden possible?
