I've cleared out the Greenhouse beds today and am now wondering how best to make winter use of them ?

Ive planted up one with some Foxgloves that were self seeding about the place and sowed some Bean for Sprint planting out. 

Apary from the various pots and cuttings etc I've room for more ! Just wondering what others do ?

I must have planted these up from smaller plants or seeds but for the life of me a name is not to hand . They are nice and doing well in the Greenhouse . Hopefully they are perennial ? They look like Pinks ?

I came upon this carved stone slab today in the grounds of KELLS Priory and ruins Co Kilkenny . The Ruins date back to the 12th Century and later works in the 1500s . The poem is probably later but still interesting to us gardeners today . Try and read the words if you can but clearer images are available from Mr Google .

These 2 were still going strong today and giving beautiful scent . Thanks to Dicks advice I take Rose cuttings every year now and most do well . These 2 are for some Cuttings tomorrow ... before I forget 

The Holly was grown from a little plant I pulled from an old cobbled yard three years ago and is covered in berries already . I bet there's none left for Christmas though !

Willow Hedge

Twenty Five days after purchase my bulbs from Mr Middleton have arrived ! In this day and age that's s little slow . I get other purchases in 3-4 days including abroad ..oh well it's Mr Middletons and Hermitage bulbs loss . 

The willow Hedging has been tied down and it will be interesting to see this develop in the next few years . It should be really sturdy eventually .

The Ricinus is doing well as is the Abutilon. These from a bee friend. The white Cosmos somehow survived today's monsoon showers . Now that the bee keeping is slowing down it's time to garden again . Lots of home saved seeds put away today even if some id forgotten to label when collected !

Hello All , I haven't been away just busy with Honey Harvest and prepping bees for Winter . The harvest was good and I had almost 70 kgs of honey from two hives. The gardening took a backfoot unfortunately but wasn't totally ignored . One of my new bee friends is a keen gardener and a sister is a botanist so I've been getting some nice swops lately . The Greenhouse has produced bumper crop of Tomatoes , Cucumbers and Aubergines and is great on a damp day ! Must catch up with all your journals soon .

I think I have this flower arranging thingy sorted . Actually I dislike cutting my flowers for this purpose but visitors arriving deserve a colourful welcome . Even better when they are all free in the garden . I don't think I could do it full time though .
