    Thank you all for your get well wishes, wife is better today and I think we have turned a corner thank you  :) But it's always a long process as she has PPMS and everything just takes longer

    I did get just half an hour at the allotment this morning while the carers were in looking after the her, just time to pick up some seed trays, compost etc and have a quick look / check around.

    The new seed order arrived this morning so will get on and sow a few tomato and cucumber's I also have some brewers hops I'm going to try and grow from seed if it works I will use them to cover the 6' wire fence at the back of my plot, and maybe start brewing my own beer 🥴🍺🍺

    Good to hear the wife feels a bit better @Hampshire_Hog , everything seems to be better for a couple of bright milder days, hope it lasts but it's a bit early for spring weather yet. At least its given everyone the impetus to start planting.😀

    Absolutely glorious day, bought some polyanthus at the GC and planted them out. Dug up a rather sad looking hebe and replaced with a nandina l have had in a pot by the back door. Cut back the hebe, potted it up and put in the coldframe. Sat on the bench with a cup of tea and breathed in the saraccoca perfume while watching the bees. Bliss, had to keep reminding myself that it's only February! 
  • We gave the front garden a big tidy this morning.  Not a breathe of wind - a real suntrap. Removed a couple of dozen Spanish bluebells - bulbs included, admired the few snowdrops in flower, picked up a barrow load of twigs for shredding and pulled out another barrow of weeds.  Job done for a month or two. This afternoon I fed and watered all my pots which are full of flowering spring bulbs or evergreens. Feeling satisfied.

    Beautiful flowers Tinpot.  I re-potted the small plants I had in 9cm pots, foxgloves, cowslips and sage. Watered them well and replaced in porch for anor few weeks I think.
    Was really pleased this morning as we popped into Homebase to have a "look-see" and they had a sale on of various pelleted fertilisers, slug pellets and rose food, so I stocked up.  I also bought a new garden cart as mine has a hole in the bottom through being bashed too often on the steps.

    Making one of the borders wider so i can plant some polyanthus in and this autumn buy some more crocuses to put in between.

    Finally planted my garlic, sowed peas, turnips, lettuce and spring onion indoors and pricked out the rocket, then ordered 2 blueberry bushes. Bulbs are growing but no flowers yet... glorious weather!
