Realised bed surprise!

I am a very lucky lass indeed. I reckon I'll put some flowers for cutting in it. I'm going to work on him to do another one!!  I reckon a couple of steaks and a packet of M&Ms will do it! Watch this space! 

Cheap greenhouse - advice please!

Have a look at ebay. That's where I got mine and it was a real bargain. You might be lucky and get a good glass one. The cheaper ones don't tend to move well, once up. A second hand glass one would be my suggestion....if you can find one of course. Good luck with it!

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 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! 

Seed Sowing Time Yet?

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.

Eeeeek! I think the right answer is pelargoniums?? Aren't geraniums those cranes bill thingermies? Is that right?
