Sounds like good ideas Clari 

Still very mild here

Favourite variety of your plants......

I love salvias and they love my soil, my favourite by a long stretch is Salvia lyciodides, the deepness of its violet blue flowers is astonishing, especially at dusk and it's gently fragrant too, doesn't make a nuisance of itself and just about hardy in my patch to boot

Oooooooooooh nice

Where do i start?

You will get plenty of good advice here I'm sure but one thing I will say is to think of all your needs in the planning stage to save you time, money and trouble, for example, do you need electrics at the end of the garden and a water tap maybe instead of all that can carrying? The choices are your but it's helpful to really think what is practical 

Good luck, best time to be starting

Afternooooon all

Well, I ache a lot and I've not done any gardening unlike you lucky lucky people!

It's been barmy here today. You could believe in summer and when I took a turn around the garden after work I saw solitary bees, hover flies, foliage, my Crocus look A-mazing, lots and lots of buds breaking, 'tis wonderful.

I read back on all your antics but too tired to really string together some conversational replies, suffice to say...I've eaten well with a glass or two of vino and Gardener's World ready to watch later on a series link, so alls good in the world.

Oh...I'm also making a To-Do list for the coming week

Anyone done any gardening today?

The amount of dinners I skip when too busy in the garden

A few years back I actually saw a buzzard swoop down on its prey in my garden! I was just stepping outside the back door, I had camera in hand but it all happened in the blink of an eye. ALL that was left was a pile of sparrow feathers.
