Back from the gym, didn't buy anything in town, just a little bit of fridge stuff at the SM which is next to the gym and I now have plenty of room in my lovely new rucksack (with secret pockets and 49 zips)

Anyways...raining all morning here and ground is muddy in places where I've moved the bark aside to plant. Still really happy with it all though, fingers crossed it stays that way.

Show us all your lovely expensive purchases KEF or whatever you buy. Have a lovely day

Get well soon, all those with colds (seems to be spreading)

thanks for the advice on Lonicera Baggesen's Gold...not sure we will start the hedge now since I wanted to begin the process of growing one before the fencing falls down but OH wants bigger plants in the ground and whilst he says expense is no problem, I'd rather not have another *job* to do this year, so I'll just buy it all end of year.

As for buying things...a new greenhouse is def on the cards as OH is getting upset with all the plants around the house Anyone with experience of wooden greenhouses? We don't want aluminium and price isn't an issue so any recommended companies would be great

Morning forkers.  Yes Hostafan1, Rob from allotment challenge seems like a lovely guy and was my favourite. Good luck today for the knee

Seems like punkdoc needs luck too! My old grandad used to say, change one part new on a car and a dozen more things go wrong after because they're not used to the new bit this was the man who once lost a wheel while driving you gran-pops but maybe not words of wisdom

Blame me for the rain. The running joke in our house is that it rains a day after I've been planting

Hi peeps

I'm back from the shops obviously. Went to pet store to get flynn doses of that medicine that stops him picking up nasties from slugs and snails and woops me, stopped at the plant section of d.i.y store

Now...I know what you're thinking...but I only bought 1 small plant Lonicera Baggesen Gold because I want one for a dark corner but now I'm think another 12 to make a hedge. Does it grow slow or fast? Anyone have experience with this plant as hedging?

OH expects instant results 


Anyone done any gardening today?
