    Did a bit of weed spraying in car park to remove grass to have bark chipping instead as pain to cut in summer and very uneven ground
    Bit of digging of plot where I will be planting out verbena B plantlets - grown from seed lasst year and digging to level middle of plot, some broad beans in flower now from November sown
    Could have a frost on Sunday morning so be careful with seedlings - still not sown anything but the 2 x 5 tier gh's are clear and clean and some trays cleaned
    Lizzie loverly magnolia really like looking at them in gardens

    Went and bought some cheap compost to dig into the veg patch and some more wood 8 8ft long pieces, more building in the garden. Just finished reshaping the lawn OH didn't notice I've taken more lawn for my veg patch >:) re covered the cloche and put stakes and wire round to stop the cats also put the onions back in the modules after the bl**dy cats last night.

    Thanks to Nut managed to identify a couple of horrible weeds so I've been out and removed them.  I'm trying to revamp a shady area of the garden with pots so I'll be checking out plants on the internet for some of the day.  I've also planted some penstemon cuttings,  mind you if they are pink and not purple they might have to be moved again. Why doesn't some invent a way of keeping track of what colour your plants are?  Oh yes, they have, they are called plant labels!!!

    purplerallim, I was very lucky I only lost one onion plus the fleece, well I think only one time will tell. I have some plastic coat mesh aprox 2 ft high so put that round cloche.

    I have planted out some beetroot seedlings, also trying some radish plugs for the first time - they are now safely in the soil. Other than that met a man who has now told us we have had too much field so chopping off a good metre or so.
