Tidy greenhouse





Well it was nice yesterday of David to help clean the greenhouse for me.



Today he kindly moved the back and front grass which needed doing all I got to do is edge the side of the grass been planting some more plants


One of the plants I planted today was an Amethyst Dream it’s a member of the coneflower family it just coming into flower this come from Mr google .com


I planted two cucumber and a sunflower this morning in my raised bed and 9 sweetcorn in the middle we will see if any come up have 3 more squares to fill


I planted the lungwort in the back garden and 2 pots of Lilly of the valley in the front garden on the side border just before tea

David brought a solar lighthouse we hoping it will work if not it be going back to the shop he also got me some more blubs taken photos so will be on video later

Pleased to say it did work will try and get a photo tonight


Well I planted two containers up today

1 with 3 Dahlia top mix mixed and the 2nd on with 3 Lilium Oriental Mixed plus 25 Anemone De Caen Mixed

So, looking forward to seeing them when they come up still waiting to make my mind up were to plant some more bulbs


I am following Sean from a You Tube channel little and often

At present.



Well we have blue sky’s this morning and the sun is trying to come out a bit cold but will warm up soon I hope still have some plants to plant and labels to write for them.


If you remember last year had some lovely wildflowers but the landlord did not approve of them so they had to go so this year I am only planting perennial plants and bulbs so hopefully I will not get asked to remove them this year and trying no dig with this border as well apart from the planting hole of cause some might self-seed which will be nice.


Well we got a lovely bargain in one off our local supermarket’s they were selling a selection box of different plants for £2.50 each so two were only £5.00 so 2 jumped into our trolley photos to come in video soon



Blue skies sun doing its best to come out so weeding will be on the menu and planting of cause







Bank holiday Monday

Tried to sit in the shade on the swing seat but way to hot I put my wigwam back up and will be planting some sweet peas not sure what colour flowers I will have as were given to us plus have grown some myself meant to be multicolour.


Put my grid back for seeing how much I can sow in a square

Please to say the wigwam fits into just one square very happy about that planted the sweet peas once the sun went down a bit .


I have just sowed Pak choy which you can harvest as baby leaves or thin out for bigger plants in the square foot raised bed

Potted on 6 cornflowers called The Bride (bees and butterfly’s love them)

Put some more soil in one of my containers of strawberry’s

Done a bit of weeding so I could pot of snow drops in plus thinking it needs edging again before I try and do anymore weeding or planting of any kind


Will we called in to new friends on the way back from shopping and apart from 6 strawberry plants come home 4 new plants

We went out in the afternoon to Fakenham which was nice

Enjoy your weekend










I just checked my watercress and apple mint that I placed in water have roots on now

Well what a lovely day we had yesterday both lawns got mowed and I planted up the six new strawberry plants that I got with the plants the other day even though to day will be slightly colder today I plan to get the plants in the ground before the rain comes to water them in for me

I placed the plants where I would like them so it just a case of digging them in to day
