Welcome to the forum Cranlan and Shirley

Anyone done any gardening today?

Sounds like a fun day Lou

I did a bit of weeding and cut some old stems of things I thought could hack it if it gets cold again. Moved some daisies into my lawn mud and checked on my mostly labelled outdoor seedlings, everything up except the red wine aconitum and assorted troublemakers in the 'struggle-pot'

Noticed happily that there are buds on my malus Louisa Not amazing normally but I'd transplanted it with difficulty, the hole filled with water while I was digging and instead of staking I weighed it down with slabs. I also planted it backwards to encourage weeping growth on the other side. We'll see

Lifted a cyclamen poked out by an allium and noticed some of my eve prims have rotted, ruining a planting scheme but providing space for a couple of fancy verbascums&

A good day

Am I allowed to be disappointed?

Started off nice this AM, sat outside and had a brew/made some plans but had to go out and by the time I got back it was peeing it down

Sowed my first seeds of this year, snaps, lobelia and some perennials and organised the next batch in the tin

Am I allowed to be disappointed?

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

Are these the GW ones? Were they letterbox sized? 

If not I'll have a look in the sheds again
