Compost composition review

(Whisper it Philippa....I DID get a sneaky feel before buying)

some absolutely rotten quality composts last year.....Asda's own was awful, for example.

would never use any bought mpc for permament planting tho 

 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Got snowdrops in the green over a week ago.  With flowers too.  Planted out and they look great now....flowers recovered beautifully. from ordering to delivery was a matter of days 

Salvia Turkestanica

Don't grow this now but I used to let it grow but not flower in its first year and then, for me anyway, it would flower for a couple of years.  best as an biennial I think....viz., to grow for flowering the following year.  so many better salvias available

Potted on a few plants but a pretty good day weather wise esp this afternoon.  Lighter mornings and evenings too.  a sense that spring is not far off

I've had daffs for weeks now but lots look like they will be on time.

blind for me usually means shallow planting or comgestion. I plant much deeper than I used to and divide clumps every 2 or 3 years. 

WARNING!!!!!!
