Ive just had an early morning peek in the greenhouse. So much activity! Seeds germinating, seedlings putting on new leaves, cuttings taking. Wish so much that I could have a day in there.

Instead I have to drive for almost 4 hours to go curling...yes, brushing ice when I'd rather be brushing my garden path. Corporate client entertaining - roll on retirement...only 20 years to go.

Sad news rip Victoria Wood

Such sad news. So young.

So upsetting that the evil C has taken another life. God I hate hate hate it. 

Place your bets....

Forecast to be a belter here today between Grantham and Newark....but the weekend is predicted to be right chilly.

Looks like, by the law of averages, it's going to be the end of May before anything goes out without protection then.

Place your bets....

Hello I'm in the East Midlands - anyone else in this neck of the woods and brave enough to start planting out? Or do you think that the dreaded frosts will be back?

A day of dreaming about gardening. Firstly when wedged into a jam packed tube, secondly when dealing with an unreasonable client, and thirdly when dealing with a case of misconduct....all made bearable with 30 seconds of closing my eyes and imagining being wrist deep in potting compost! 

Gardening really is therapy sometimes, even if it is only the thought of it.

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Looking at yours again Victoria, you have the same early stages of flowers. They seem to be hanging down on these plants at the moment.  Hoping that they grow as spikes as per the description.

Hope yours grows on you Jinxy. Im hoping it'll come into its own when it's a bit larger and established.

That's pretty Flumpy.

I commented to my other half about the disappearing compost and I got a physics lesson in response. Apparently "matter can neither be created or destroyed" .... but can 'matter' tell me where my compost goes?!!

Busy-Lizzie, I think greenhouse shuffling should be an official sport! I seem to spend hours doing it but it's amazing how much more can be nudged in with a bit of tinkering isn't it?!

your choice of plants sounds lovely rosemummy. Great combinations. 

Im going to nip over to my inlaws later as they are going out. ive been helping them with their garden so will do some more as a surprise for when they return.
