Thanks for the tip Fairy re FBB, have a good day. Oh and enjoy your trip Liri. Hosta I bet you'll be glad to get back home.

Fishing for sympathy!

Missed this thread Steve, sorry to hear about your unscheduled birthday pressie.  Hope you recover soon.  Good idea about a second birthday.  My daughter had to have her appendix removed the day before we were due to fly to Cyprus, if I remember right full recovery was about six weeks, so take it easy.

Morning Chicky, I'm on the starting blocks too with seed sowing.  Have them all in order in my seed box ready and waiting.  I always start them off in a propagator on the conservatory window ledge.  Mind you Secondborn is still using it as a bedroom until the house purchase is completed.  It looks like we've been burgled (is that a word?) and the blinds are left down all the time, I just shut my eyes as I go passed on the way to the kitchen.

G'day Ginger, I forget you and Pat are around too.  I use Fish, Blood and Bone as a fertilizer.  I'm never sure whether to dig some in before I mulch or after.

Morning Dove, Yes I know I'm not normally around at this time of day but woke with a headache so made a cuppa and thought I'd check in while I drank it.  Bunny was spotted again late last night in the garden.  Neighbour came round and I told them to get on with it, I wasn't going out there in the dark searching.  No idea if they caught it.

If that rabbit touches my plants Lily your dog will be greeted with open arms and a big bone.

Evening all, spent most of today trying to catch a rabbit.  Next doors bunny has, apparently, escaped into my garden.  I'm just worried the flipping thing will eat the plants.

Nice shirt Flumpy.

I do Fairy, haven't watched this weeks though.  I read all the books and loved them, think the authour was Ann Cleeve.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Can't remember the last time I posted on this thread about real gardening.  Pruned the Wisteria, potted on some blue poppies and tidied up a border.  Felt great to be outside in the garden again.  Short lived though it's raining again now.

Thanks for all your comments re Sissinghurst I will check that hotel out.  Gardening today has inspired me.  Ive checked through my seeds and planned when I'm sowing them and ordered some new Verbenas Lanai (Vintage Rose and Pink Twister) so I can take cuttings from them.  I'm feeling so positive.
