Planning ahead

I have just ordered my spring plug plants from Gardening Direct’s Spring 2010 catalogue and it has really put a smile on my face. It has been so nicetn_garden-065 planning the garden inside a warm house whilst outside it is still so bitterly cold. Having been blown away with how wonderful my garden looked last year I am so excited about using plug plants for my second summer.

Following on from last years successes I have ordered Gardening Direct’s Begonias, Impatiens, Petunias and Geraniums. I am trying out Verbanas, Marigolds and Lobelias for the first time along with the Echinacea Collection, which are a collection of bee loving plants.

Looking through the catalogue and planning the garden for the summer months certainly proved a successful task for me in brightening my gardening spirit through all this cold weather.  I am probably more excited about the garden this year than I was last year as I know what to expect in terms of how easy it is to grow the plug plants on. Knowing that even I can have huge successes with the plants does make it significantly easier to plan the garden.

I have also ordered the Potato Successional Collection as I loved the taste of my homegrowns last year but unfortunately didn’t quite get to grips with the whole 1st Early, 2nd Early and Main Crops system. So yet again I am going to use Gardening Directs expertise completely to my advantage and take full credit for all of my successes!
