    Morning all, not a bad morning…. still trying to get rid of a mountainous amount of garden compost!! Managed to get all my spuds in last weekend. Yeah !! Onions and garlic are looking healthy so can start to sow some veggie seeds. Not sure what’ll be 1st to sow yet. HAGU all :cool:

    • Hi Sweet Pea, beggar, I missed you again. I have my spuds in…..but there were only 10! My shallot are in too and lots of seeds sprouting in the conservatory and greenhouse…..no idea where the flowers will go :lol:

    Morning all, today’s tasks are weeding, pruning what roses are left, still mulching and thinning out the tomato seedlings plus potting up. There that should keep me busy :lol:

    Morning Peeps!! Suns shining, birds are singing , must be spring!! Thinning out snowdrops today and planting them in the woods. They’ll be a great display next year….😊

    • High Sweet Pea, MUST get some for next year and dig them in deep so the squirrels can’t eat them again! :excruciating: :lol: :rose:

      • Actually Squirrels cannot eat Snowdrops as they are poisonous to mammals.

        • Well thank you for correcting me Eric :-) I didn’t know that. So now I wonder why my snowdrops, or any other tiny bulbs for that matter, have never survived in GG :confused: ? :rose:

          • Crocus are very edible to mammals.
            Scilla are very poisonous indeed.
            What other bulbs have you lost?
            Molluscs can and do eat them off at ground level with no ill effects.
