even the basket got planted

even the basket got planted

went out this morning determined to plant the bulbs that i got in the christmas market 2 weeks ago and i did i even made a container of the basket they came in. i also planted up the red currant plants i got in lidl a couple of weeks ago, there were 6 plants altogether  then i went in and watered the foxgloves and potted up the hostas and redhot pokers and other bits that were in the propagators on the window sill now it is all put away until after christmas when i will be sowing again towards the end of january. i also potted up the rooted hardy fuchsias that had been rooted in water.

i am very happy with it all now so i just have to mind all my stuff that is in the spare room and front hall and of course in the tunnel.

ow, you could aleays try de icer if you needed to get in. it was really cold hazel, i was at my mum and dads for an hour thursday eve and when i came out the windscreen was frozen on the inside, i couldnt believe it. so far the cloches are doing their job everything is doing brill so far, i havent put fleece on the plants yet. also this year the doors are in it instead of just the flaps so it is making it slightly more warm
