Do you get excited when you have parcels/deliveries arrive at your door? I do! After my spending spree the other week they have all started to arrive!
First was the wood from Buildbase. My neighbour and I ordered together so we could get free delivery!
this is for my veg beds, I have raised beds but not high enough. The sleepers currently being used, will be moved round the garden to edge other beds. Nothing wasted here!
Then came my Cycas Revoluta which I won on Ebay
Then the bulk buy of Perlite and Vermiculite, which I thought was a bargain and I hope will get me through 2 years, but I suspect with all the repotting I shall need to do, may not!
Dandy's delivered the bulk bag of loam. But only just managed to get it off the road! I have a gravel drive and did not read the small print!!!!!
200 jiffy plugs for my seedlings once big enough.
3 Water troughs. These will be the new homes for my bamboos. I dare not plant them in the ground, with my garden only being 13ft wide, I would be terrified of them escaping into the neighbours gardens!
Then my assortment of plants from Madeira, most are on a heat mat in my heated greenhouse, a couple will remain in my house as I think even the greenhouse will be too cool for them.
A spur of the moment buy, I do like these types of plants, so really wanted to know when and what to pot up into etc!
Then this morning B and Q delivered this lot!
I am not sure there is much more to come apart from some plants due April. I want to get holes drilled in the troughs and get them placed so I can move the bamboo's. One of which should have been repotted last year. The big pots they are in will be used for my Maurelli's, provided they have come through the winter, one is looking very suspect.
My builder comes next week to help do the beds and let me know if the wall is good enough to hold the weight of my planned for 'Living Wall'.
Oh yes, my neighbour in the first cottage has had a tree surgeon in to remove 2 exceptionally large trees. The neighbour in the 2nd cottage got a price to have her Silver Birch removed (one of which has lost a major branch) but her partner said, that he would do it!!! I am very worried for my greenhouse and office now!!!
