  • Very very exciting. Now need to make more paper pots to pot on the marigolds. I know it will be a while but I have to make a stock of pots! Have no where near enough pots to pot up!! Ooops

    I've got a major pricking out operation ahead. Always looks as though I've got plenty of pots but they soon get used up.

  • Sad thing is I hardly have any room for things. My partner said that things weren't touching last year so I have plenty if room. But it was year 1 of my perennials, so hopefully this year it will be fuller.

    If not my family will love me. Just have to set to to make my square pots. Wondering how big I need my pots?!

    Also need to save up for compost!

    Every spring before things grow I think 'What am I going to put in all these gaps?'

    By May it's 'Where am I going to put all these plants?'

  • But somehow its addictive as I want insurance policies incase my plants didn't come through winter!!

    Nothing for it, will have to make my boarders deeper. They are only 1.5ft and my other half said he only wanted me to take 1/2 ft of the lawn up! Looks like I will need to creep it up to 3 ft, leaving about a 5ft lawn!!!! Ooops
