We had a reasonably good day today, some sun and not too cold. I cut back my Penstemons and started on edging the lawns. BIG job in our garden, like the Forth Bridge! Henry was very annoying and kept dashing into the stream, gettimg stones and chasing them round on the grass - he wrecks it doing that! In the end I had to put him indoors to save my sanity. Didn't go anywhere near any Nurseries or Garden Centres as I have maxed out on spending on plants this last few weeks! (Worth it, though, Non, je ne regrette rien). :-) Well done on not over-spending!

Did I miss something Irish, tomatoes in hanging baskets ?
Would that work for runner beans and save all that messing about with canes ?

Your B&Q branch sounds a lot better than ours, Irish. Have had opportunities to visit several branches in and around here, but not found a thing I'd like to buy (good for my "wallet" though).
