Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

My vice is plants. Honestly, I even try and save the half dead ones on sale ! I buy and propagate more, even when I have no spare space.

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

I did manage to get the garlic planted out yesterday. It's a milestone moment for me, as it's the first ever thing to be planted in the new spot (previously hardstanding) :)

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

I'll be transferring my garlic to the main bed this week hopefully (if it ever stops raining) Theyr are a couple of inches high in the troughs I planted them in in early Jan. Am desperate to sow some seeds, but holding back as long as I can!

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

yes, I noticed the forecast was to be quite chilly tonight. Must remember extra protection for the poor little things that need it.

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs.

Yep, chucking it down again here, we did have some late afternoon sun, and I got a bit of painting done under the patio canopy. The lawn is a quagmire, I've ever known it to be so soggy.

Re: King Seed Supplies

I ordered my supply from simplyseeds and growseeds last Autumn. They took weeks and weeks to arrive, but I didn't want a repeat of last spring whenI couldn't get anything I wanted from anyone! They are all tucked up in an old biscuit tin awaiting sowing time.
