I love ferns especially the shuttlecock fern, I always think it is at its best when it is unfolding and so easy to grow and multiply, the only thing is they prefer shade during the summer and I have mine in full sun!

I bought this Azalea last year during the summer after it had flowered for €3 in a low budget garden centre, it looked extremely healthy but had no tag so had no idea what or what colour it was going to be - so am pleasantly surprised with the lovely pink colour.

Just wondering is this a mountain ash or what is it?

Is it normal that the allium leaves all look crumpled & tatty or has my dog got at them?

Here is a picture of my recent pulsatilla purchase, I believe it will either love me or hate where I have planted it, but I won't know until this time next year to see if it flowers again, exciting times.

The girls went gardening mad last week and wanted to plant a bit of everything and they labelled them - we even found seeds from last year which we did not plant called Warty's - anybody know what they are, I think they are from the pumpkin family but quite ugly looking, I must have thrown away the packet! It came in a childrens pack of seeds which we had last year, we did grow the white stock (put it in a glass of water and food colouring and they changed colour over night - great fun), the sunflowers and some others.

Courgettes & Broad Beans
Courgettes, Broad Beans (thanks Rachel), pumpkins, cucumbers all doing well, can't wait to plant them outside. When I came back after a weekend away I can see outside my carrots, potatoes, garlic and onions are all coming up, I can't believe it having never down this before!
