Morning all

Can't seem to stop yawning this morning, head full of PPPs (possible planting positions)

To move or not to move, that is the question.

Some plant need a  better spot but their growing larger every season and well, I haven't thought of where to move them too yet . I don't mind leaving them in bags until I find the place, I've got an exposed kniphofia sitting on my patio since autumn, it's still alive despite the frostings, it won't suffer before spring but where to put it?

Anyone done any gardening today?

YES! YES! and Oh Yes!

OOOooooOOOOoh damn, KEF spotted my stealth purchases

Not sunny today, but still doable in the garden. Didn't get anything actually planted because I had to make Cheesy-Leeky-Potato-Thingy this afternoon which I've just gobbled up with butcher's sausages I was starving!

and there's leftovers for tomorrow

Win win aye?

I indulged myself...

Seriously, what was the company you ordered from?

I think I'm peeking way too early. I don't normally visit the GC at this time of year

And I have never begun jobs or done any planting before March before but well, then I always end up with not enough hours in the day so...I'm trying to stay ahead of the rush

Got a pergola and trellis to erect in the spring and one whole area of garden to landscape...gonna be sooo  by summer

Hopefully spring is not far away and we all know how curative gardening can be

Back from the GC!

  • 3 new bird nest boxes as promised,
  • a new feeder for meal worms, 
  • a new litter picker for the front garden
  • some training wire and eyes for my pyrancatha
  • two more Lavender to make a row of five in total (can't wait for that flowering moment!)
  • and my guilty pittosporums, Abbotsbury Gold and a duplicate variegatum just because I have admired these shrubs for so long. They never get boring!

Coffee in me first, then more planting

Talkback: Informal planting
