Where do i start?

Posted: 08/03/2015 at 17:39

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?

Thanks Dove, just hope I haven't offended too many robins in my day

The sun has got his hat on....

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.

Dove, I read that you can tell robins by the crest on their heads??? Is it called a crest? If its curved its a guy bird and V shaped is girl and I only remember that because V is for V**gina am I wrong?

Hi everyone!

Lovely to read all your activity in the garden with the sun out. It's been beautiful here in Kent, sun is still glorious and I've been fed and watered and will take a leisurely stroll just to figure out some planting positions for next week maybe...

My part of Kent is glorious, buds popping all over the place, roses have first leaves in the most sheltered parts and large Acer is blushing early. Warm with no wind

Congratulations BL, I'm sure your garden will amaze and delight

Weekend weather predicted at 17 also and I shall spend most of it trapped inside a little room baking donuts Oh well, needs must and I do get to enjoy today although my mood is rock bottom at the moment and not sure why.

Rubbish people have been for first load, looks like there's a half load to go yet but that will make the largest space I've had down the bottom since...oooh...ever!

Not sure what I feel like doing in the garden once they are gone, maybe punkdoc's PPP from yesterday? We'll see later at summing up time

Have a great day everyone
