GWRS, all looking very neat and tidy, you have worked hard!

Gardengirl, have ordered catalogues from suttons, T&M, kings and Sarah Raven ( looking to maybe treat myself flower wise from her site, if not too expensive)

I do get emails from Suttons re offers etc but I do like the feel of oaoer/ catalogue to browse through , am I the only one? Lol

Well I managed to get a couple of hours on the veggie garden and the central area has been rotavated  and covered over with garden plastic sheeting until next year, so pleased with that. Back to work tomorrow so not able to get anything more done til Friday afternoon. Happy gardening those of you who are able to get out there!

Wow you've all been very busy! You can tell from the pics how well you've done BizzieB

Gardening girl, it was seed catalogues I ordered, not any seeds yet, I'm a bit behind

BizzieB...planning a complete overhaul of the veggie garden area. Have only been growing in about 3 beds for the last couple of years....the garden had been left to go wild somewhat when we bought it. We've just been keeping it tidy for the last couple of years but know hoping to completely restructure it. Lots if ideas but really need to get it all down on paper but we now  have 2/3rds of it cleared of weeds and grass. Hoping to buy a new greenhouse as the old one is falling apart, also going to change its location so planning to get a base in over the next couple of weeks.

We have a few pallets to create a composting area and also want to get some bark down for the first of the pathways. 

Hoping to get outside tomorrow if I feel up to it, have a good day peeps!

What a lovely day today and definately a day for gardening, alas I woke feeling poorly, earache, sore throat, crokey and absolutely wiped out energy wise !  

However I've ordered all my seed catalogues online, played catch up with GW on TV and dreamt of what I will do when I feel better 

Sorry Fruitcake but I'm a sweet pea lover too , I don't plant row after row but the odd obelisk or two looks lovely amongst my beds!

Beaus Mum, have visited YouTube and watched Rachel Thane,,,,,I had seen it before but had forgotten about it (must be an age thing)! But it was lovely to watch again and I've written down loads so thank you! 

BizzieB, thank you for the birthday wishes! Hope you haven't got too much wind damage!

Well it's 'blowing a hooley' and raining as forecast so no more weeding today , but hey it's my birthday so I won't feel too guilty.... My house resembles a florist at the moment and the colours are brightening up my day. I would like an area set out for growing cut flowers in the future so as im confined to barracks I think I will take down some notes from the last few GW episodes where Rachel made a cutting garden area.

BizzieB you are very organised, I haven't even sent for seed catalogues yet...am I too late? You can tell I'm a novice .....well that's another job for this afternoon then!

Had a lovely afternoon in the veggie garden, managed to clear the long central area of weeds, other half was well impressed when he got home.....feeling smug lol. Luckily we didn't get any rain until 4pm but it's forecast for tomorrow so doubt I'll get much more done.

hope everyone is keeping well

Wow Gina, your day sounds fab and you certainly managed to get a lot done on your allotment 

Was hoping to get out on the veggie garden tomorrow but the weather forecast looks awful, praying it improves!
