Four...five, six and seven.

That's 1 pyracantha (moved since last week) 2 Group 1 Clematis planted 1 Geranium, 1 Acer, 1 Spirea, and my trachelospermum jasminoides up the arch.

In for coffee reading all your exciting sowing, potting, planting that's going on and the exciting new plants arriving in the post.

Spring! Spring! Spring! Oh how I love thee so

One, two, three plants in the ground so far

Just time to read the thread while warming up with a cuppa.

Ground is wet and darn cold but my soil is sandy so its easily workable.

Right! Off I go again...think I've worm Flynn out already

(someone remind me why I'm not waiting until warmish spring to do my planting? When the days are sunny and the ground is warm?)I've never started so early before now, but then I do usually get a mad rush on come April...

It's my birthday

Getting my willies on now

Can I actually put things in the ground today instead of dithering about so much?

Have a nice day at the Ps Dove, oh and I forgot to mention yesterday, I understood what you were talking about with your daughter's MS. My husband is in recovery from what they now call CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) same symptoms as MS and caught the same way. He had a virus that he just couldn't shift. So I'm totally on the same page as you with that one

And Lesley..lots of plant buying please I think it was you who mentioned a GC visit due today?

BM, it was doing the same thing to me last weekish. I was spam-posting until DD pointed out that I might be using the refresh page option while inside the thread. So now I go back to latest posts and enter the thread that way

morning Forkers

Clear sky here this morning but no frost. woop woop.

Now what can I say about mine and others' days today?

Oh yes, hope anyone off to work has a good one

Dogs...ah yes, BM, my dog thinks he's clever playing that game too. He goes straight for an area he's not supposed to be and just looks at me with his food face

Bekkie you're a bunch of giggles and Bill stay cosy indoors for now!


Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 16/02/2015 at 16:03

Overcast day but dry and not too wintery. Tidied up a lot today, so many areas looking tatty or littered by previous gardening.

So many tulip and alliums showing through now, Hellebores out and Saxifrage and Hebe pinguifolia flowering a bit

Pruned lower parts of Laurel to clean up the stems, (in a few weeks I will be pruning the top so it looks like a tree) and finished chopping back my Group 3s.

Still need to decide on so many PPPs (possible planting positions)

Do you come in pocket size Verdun?

Got out in garden this afternoon for a bit of pruning and tidying up. Also potted on some houseplants.

Lovely dry day, putting my feet up now
