Spring Clean

18 degrees today – what an Easter Hol treat!

Sun cream needed for gardening for the first time in 2010.

I have meters and meters of soaker hose – fantastic stuff – it just waters the ground round the plants not the bare soil so less weeds grow. The Veg Plot plants particularly benefit as the leaves do not get too wet. Also you can leave it trickling whilst you are away so neighbours do not have to be conscripted for watering duties so often! It is a must in my greenhouse too.

I have just laid it all out for this year and put the hose on fast to clear the pipes out and to check for any leaks – non found this time  – so all ready for a long hot summer.

The bird of paradise is blooming well
