@Rob and Wintersong. Managed to salvage sunflowers but the other seedlings were just too small and fragile   The puppy was the only one who had any fun!

Never mind, nothing more I can do about it now.....onwards and upwards

@Gardeningfanatic and your greenhouses look amazing, im sooooo jealous lol. I came home to a disaster today, As well as a small greenhouse, i have one of those mini ones with the polythene covers. Unfortunately a couple of days ago the zip broke and the 'door' has been flapping about so I turned it around to face the wall hoping to protect it but alas today it all blew over, seed trays and seedling everywhere and the puppy having a great time running through the lot  As I was behind with all my seeding anyway this has set me back even further. Think my garden will be an embarrassment this year! Can anybody loan me a fairy with an efficient wand????

Hi all, lovely to read all your posts. Those on holiday, I hope you have a great time. Kate, enjoy the wedding and hope the flowers arrive intact after all your hard work.

Dean...some great work going on there, well done.

Excitable boy.....Thornbury Wyevale is about 5 mins away from me so you must live close! I went there between Xmas and New Year and bought several bargains in their sale including a beautiful Hellebore for £3.50 which has flowered really well. At the moment the forecast is not too bad for us this weekend so will hopefully beable to spend hours outside

Some great pics been posted!

Had several lovely hours outside today, started off sunny with a chilly breeze but later it warmed up and I was down to short sleeves, amazing. We've had our young helper in for 2 days and the front garden is gradually taking shape. He built another low stone wall for us and the pathway is now finished. he also cleared away all the old negelected lavenders which were choked with brambles etc.......the previous owners had let it all go. The soil is beautiful and I have an area which will be ready for turfing once the new water supply is connected to the extension, then buried. A new larger bed is now screaming out to be filled, im staring to get quite excited. My sister brought over 3 small boxes of mini plug plants that I had ordered a couple of months ago so i have potted them on til they get a little bigger/stronger. I had 1 box of cosmos, 1 busy lizzie but cant remember the 3rd and dont recognise it, my memory is getting worse lol. Well whatever they are im sure I'll be pleasantly surprised ! The forecast for tomorrow is rain for us, and in fact for the next few days so I wont feel so bad having to work on a Bank holiday. Im hoping to finish at 1pm so if the rain does arrive I will treat myself to a wander around the garden centre followed by a coffee and piece of carrot cake . Hope you all have a good day x

@ Jude, lol very good response!

Figrat, love the piccies, amazing work jealous of the progress of your veggies, at times like this I think was my holiday worth it when Im so far behind . Managed to get a couple of hours out in the garden, this clearing is back braking and hardly seem to be making a dent in it. Hpoing for another dry day tomorrow, fingers crossed. Enjoy your  weekend peeps x

Hi all, joined the forum last night and am still trying to find my way around but did manage to introduce myself to others via a 'thread' so am receiving some great advice. Look forward to reading your posts
