Hello again gardening friends and welcome to my first blog for the month of April!
First of all thanks to everyone who ordered from the gardening show on our Birthday weekend, hope you all enjoyed the special deals and exciting new plants and products as much as we did.
Our 17th Birthday was the best yet (and I’ve been to all 17!) and I was so pleased to be a part of it. I actually worked quite a few extra days as I didn’t want to miss out on anything, but that did mean I had to sacrifice a few of my gardening days last week. However, as I was mostly on the early shift I did manage to get a few odd hours in the evening to do a few bits and bobs and the weather has been really sunny later on in the day so it’s been really nice to potter about early evening
I had ordered the patio sweet peas with pots last week from the Sunday Show as a present for my mum and they arrived really quickly so potting those up was top of my list. The quality of the plants was excellent and everything arrived very safely as always. Looking forward to seeing my mum soon and giving them too her, I know she will love them
Last week I pictured my narcissus looking fabulous but sadly because of the intense sun these are going back a little but the tulips are now in full bloom and looking wonderful so the garden is still looking really good for the time of year, even if I say so myself!
Thanks as always for reading
All the best
Ps One final important point- if you ordered lots of things from Sunday’s show or from any gardening hour don’t worry if everything doesn’t always arrive together in one go. Plants and products are sometimes sent In separate parcels for various reasons but often to make sure the plants are as fresh as possible.
