Aha!  You beat me to it David. 

I think we are heading for surprise premier league champions this year In Leicester.  Only Man City will beat them.  Leicester's play is exciting and powerful.  Unlike Arsenal they will always score a goal when needed.

TERRY,,check out hardy perennials in small (9cm) pots in the garden centres.  Pot them on...not out grow a bit more for cheap summer plants.  

sow peas (cover with polythene or fleece) and sow lettuce in pots indoors.  

grab a couple of dahlias too to pot up.  Dont water yet and fleece them overnight.   The earlier you start them the bigger your plants will be this summer 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Beautifully warm and sunny.    In garden (albeit walled) it feels and looks like spring.

 Sown peas and lettuce.  Planted out replacement helianthemum (year old cutting now a bushy plant), planted out potted blue anemone blandas, potted hyacinths ( been outside in pots) and put out potted tulips that have been outside all winter.

heart says it is spring.  Brain is saying "whoa....not quite yet"

Planted out pulmonaria Blue Ensign that I divided and potted up last spring.  2 large plants in flower now for immediate impact. Potted on salvias, agastaches, osteospermums and linum perenne.
