Welcome to my garden Hebe.

Welcome to my garden Hebe.

After the usual jobs as planned earlier today,i spent time in the afternoon looking at a veg garden.On the way home i called for tea to friends and they both were out gardening at the time.When asked if i wanted a Hebe,that would be not used there,what could i say only three words,i sure do.Tomorrow evening a place will be arranged for it.This evening i soaked it and left it then in a tub of clay until then.Sometime tomorrow evening at some stage i will see to that first off,and then head to the vegetable garden.If all goes well later on tonight,an hour will be spent in the tunnel.

What a bonus John. Bet you didn't think you'd have that this evening. Was well worth calling in for that tea!

Hi John.   Just looked at your photos of the cold frame.  Where did you "find it"?What was it in its previous life do you think?

Brilliant thinking, John. I am sure it will get great use.
