The postman brought me a parcle today - really the perfect day to get a parcel as it was sleeting and snowing all day!

I asked about root-training pots a couple of weeks ago and got good advice so they got ordered online and were delivered today!

Now I have to go get my Sweetpea seeds! 

The weather was so horrible today that I couldn't even go out and fill the pots with compost - but hopefully tomorrow will be a bit better!

Love to see Mr Postman coming with gifts, even if you did order them yourself ha ha......

I usually sow my Sweet Pea into the pots that the Clematis come in. They are usually nice and deep. I put 3 seeds to each pot and they do really well. 

I got caught out with my dogs in that flipping snow yesterday and the wind was blowing against us too....freezing...definitely not a day for the garden. As you say hopefully today will be warmer! Good luck with the Sweet Pea!

No snow here Hazel. A bright sunny day. Look at the increase in the length of the days. Spring is here, on St. Brigid's Day.

Those root trainers look the business Hazel, your Sweetpeas are bound to be fabulous! There's no thrill like receiving a parcel in the post.

They are brilliant with plants . You get a lovely full root plug

Well they are planted now - keeping them in the house for the moment ....
