We spent the morning sitting in the waiting room at the hospital for DH to see the eye specialist. As the appointment was for 9am I didn't take my knitting....we weren't seen til 11.10 so you can imagine how fed up we were.
So, that explains why there has been a serious lack of plot gardening today! But I did do some work in the tunnel (boy was it hot!) I planted out one bed with tomatoes, marigolds, and tomatilloes. And I got another bed ready to put toms in tomorrow. I also sowed seeds of lettuce and broccoli.
Here you can see the little sempervivum collection in its pot. I have stood it with the others by the front door. All the other pots were refreshed this week. I lined the terracotta ones with plastic, and add lots of water retaining gel. This should mean less wilting this year.
The pots look a bit sparse but I have jam-packed them with plants. I like the overblown look rather than being able to see the soil. The plants will soon fill out.
The Sempervivums look a little out of place in the row. But I can't have the big pot in the back garden as Freddie is prone to "anointing" the pot frequently!!!
