    Today I washed out a tray and lid for seed sowing - still more to wash out yet

    I fixed up a few bird boxes the roofs - I covered with spare roofing felt as some of the wood starting to crack they are now ready for the community garden

    Not a lot.

    Far too cold at the moment and soil saturated from all the rain.

    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
  • New shed arrived today !!  birthday present request - sad but true.  Looking forward to fitting it out.  A nice high stool bought for sitting seed sowing and pricking out.  

    New greenhouse ordered as Doris really took a dislike to the old one.  Will get someone to erect though.  Ordered loads of heavy duty wind break to give some protection to new one.  

    Itching to start seed sowing now.

    Got 2 pyrancatha and 3 clematis that I want to plant out. I need to run some wires across the fences which I'll do this weekend too... I'll sow some annuals in trays.

    Will also try and mulch everything this weekend.

    Sowed 30 different lots of seed. Ordered a couple more, as you do!  Repotted cuttings And a large Azalea.   Cut down 1 Buddlea, other stuff in the borders, several grasses, and planted 100 nerines, repotted all the strawberry plants.
