Another Day Another Garden Centre – Sat 7th June

Posted by

A glorious morning, although we knew heavy rain was on it’s way so a brief bit of pottering this morning led us to find that some old tomato plants we’d given up on were started to bear fruit so tomorrow when the weather’s better we’ll try & mend our upside down tomato grower and see how we get on (less earth this time so hopefully it’ll not fall down).

Oops! The result of last night's cat v puppy pre-bedtime chase!

Also discovered that last night’s epic pre-bedtime puppy/cat chase resulted in a smashed pot!

A wee trip to Pentland Plants and we ended up with some lovely scented Vanilla Lady, Nemesias and some Silver Falls Dichondras for the ‘wells’ at the front of the cottage. Some Heathers and a couple of Saxifragas for the rockery, and a Lavendar plant, some ornamental grasses, another tomato plant and some grass seed. It’s an expensive business this gardening lark!

We'd given up on these scraggly old tomato plants but they're bearing fruit

Tomorrow will be mainly gardening followed by a lovely big bbq and we have guests staying over to help out – not sure if they realise this yet!
