    Lovely dry day today.......planted 9 bare root Rose's and numerous bulbs.  Hope to finish planting all my bulbs by the weekend.

    Will be doing some jobs in garden this morning in preparation for Anglian Waters contractors who will be cleaning the sewage from gardens this week

    Hope it all goes well @GWRS, especially as its white all over with frost this morning.
  • I sowed more Yellow Rattle and wild flower seed this morning - hoping at least 50% will germinate with resulting flowers next year.  We spread more wood chip over the big flower bed, the border and the tree circles on the lawn - I am sure the blackbirds will appreciate foraging and no doubt scattering the chip.

    Its too wet to do much but I've collected up more leaves and the last of the cosmos and it all goes in the compost, I'm happy to see the bins are steaming in the morning cold air. It's just an excuse to wander the garden with a coffee and enjoy the beautiful sunshine.

    I planted more bulbs in pots, despite a biting easterly wind and OH trimmed the front hedge. I had to bite my tongue as I'd have preferred the grass to be cut!

    Planted Rosa "Albrighton" & a Golden a bit of mulching and more cardboard sheet on the veg beds.
  • Didn't plan on doing any gardening today but nipped to Aldi and saw they had Hellebores for £2.99, of course I couldn't resist so I got 2 along with a Gaultheria Mucronata (also £2.99) and planted them when I got home!

    Very muddy underfoot today. Removed more slate from revamping bed, ( only doing it a bit at a time)
    Mulched some beds with manure,  for the worms to see to. ( lots of worms about)
    Put more support on highest of the apples "arms", and repaired the pergola.
