 I'm especially interested in colour at this time of year and not from flowers! I have plenty of design work to do still, so happy gardening to you all


Hi everyone.

Well my garden is as dry as a bone with some very obvious gaps showing too and the odd pot I forgot to water but oh well...I am busy dodging the spiders this year planting spring bulbs on mass and adding pots for a more lived in feel.

Lovely to catch up here.

BTW Victoriasponge...I divided my scabiosa very easily in the spring. Even the tiny bits took well in my soil, if a little slow to bulk I now have 7 full sized plants from one over three years.

Morning all. Hope your eyes get well today OL.


If bekkie is nuts, then I'm the wicked one with no rest because my day off today will be spent doing more landscaping  But first...strawberries for breakfast

Talking of Astilbes...mine was divided last year and replanted in dappled shade with a shed load of meaty compost and growing marvellously this year as a clump of three, but no flowers yet...

Also, dug up the rest of my second early spuds. Forked a few that I will have for tea tonight, but not a bad crop given that my soil is really undernorished. It's very thin and was eaay to move by the trug load to my new raised bed, but I'm only half emptying the old veg bed, since it still has onions and carrots in it, and only half filling the new bed, since I need to add lots of organic matter as well.

Once the onions have finished, I will landscape the veg plot for more raised beds and better design, plus room for greenhouse w00p w00p. Then, and only then, I think I can join the grown-up gardener's club and get seriously early seed sowing next spring.
