Today I have continued planting up two year old


Herb plants in 13 inch square plastic tubs using old
compost with Gerbil litter, Horticultural Sand, Fish Blood
and Bone granules, to create a good supply of fresh herbs
for cooking later on, handy for my kitchen on the balcony.

I have surrounded each plant with half price bulbs on buy one get one free, 12 pink Angelique 18" tulips, and 12 soft shades collection Battenburg 14" tulips.
Interspersed with 8 Parsley plants in each tub to grow on.

I also got 12 Chionodoxa bulbs 4" high Glory of the Snow for £1.24 which I planted in the front of my balcony half baskets.

Its a good time to go shopping !
