GWRS. I have quite alot of different varieties and add to them each yr, would hate to lose them.. 


I'm getting better at storing them too. ..and split them this year to make more plants..

Gg. I thought grass paths was the way to go until the strimmer broke...😟...


I had some flower beds this year but they were mainly annuals and bulbs like, dafs, iris, gladioli and alliums. 


Dahlia's are still doing well but high maintanence, will need to dig them up soon. 


Just potted up some ranunculus...!

Excellent progress, Caroline. It"s a good plan to get as much done this  side of  Christmas, if the weather turns cold the ground soon freezes.

Gg. Some parts of my plot are looking a little over grown.


I've some autumn/winter jobs to do. Some will make the plot less high maintance, the stumpery was one, with permanent planting, bulbs and flowers to attract pollinators, ferns to cover the ground.


Was going to extend rubbarb patch with new varieties to extend the season.


I've acquired alot if flagstones so the plan is to make more paths to cut down on grass paths, will be mindful of the wildlife though, I heard grasshoppers last year so will keep some grassy area's.


Some baby frogs hopped out from a pile of decomposing vegetation under plastic at the weekend.

My onions were a french variety and as a back purchased a mixed bag from Wilko's. 


I've 30 spare ones which will be planted in modules as a back for any which don't grow or get taken by mice.

Spent a few hrs on the plot.


I also got in garlic, shallots and onions. Dug up an old rubbarb patch too, and made a stumpery, planted some ferns and bulbs and started a bug hotel.

You are ahead of me, haven't planted any onions or garlic yet. I find autumn planted ones do better than Spring planted ones.

Hope you are feeling better Gg 


Just watched GW, missed the last few.


I'm thinking of moving some fruit trees and bushes. They've been planted  to close together and in the wrong places. They were planted about two to three yrs ago so still young enough me thinks to be replanted.

They are in an unheated GH, I usually dry them but have only dried ripe one's.


Do green chillies dry ok and keep well?
