LesleyK, I am out of bed, but still doing indoor stuff. Perhaps the planting will get done tomorrow.

An alternative approach... could you allocate a small space to them and offer to show them how to grow veg. for their mums?

Good morning all. Sitting in my office ( actually still in bed ) doing my paperwork. Exciting times here. The village calendar has been printed and the  Villagers' recipe book ( both produced by the village Shop)  is finished and will be with the printers shortly. I shan't know what to do with my time when they are both on sale.

I think I might try to get my tulips in their pots shortly, rather than wait.Fingers crossed.

Bulbs should go in now as soon as you get them. Leave tulips to early November, to avoid disease.

Pass, on apple pruning, not my scene. Sorry.

Beautiful warm day here now after a hefty shower at lunchtime. Acanthus, Kniphofia and Veronica rescued from bed about to be cleared and have split them up and now have loads of each, for new beds, plant sales and friends.

Has anyone got Verbena Macdougalii hybrid. Bought 3 yesterday at plant talk on late season perennials.

Can anyone recommend a good lawn edging tool?

Half-moon edgers are still readily available in you local GCs, I should know, I broke 3 when edging my miles of edges a couple of years ago.  One only lasted a few hours.

Best to do it when turf is soft, as it is now.

More and more alliums?, Gg?...Christophii are very beautiful, but watch out, they seed about a lot.

I don't iron, I just kid myself everything is made of linen....

Looking on the bright side, if you can dodge the showers, it is now really easy to dig and weed , unless you have claggy  ( technical term) soil,  .

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
