Winter prep part 2


Well here we go again, decided to lift the standards and put away for winter. Much appriciated advice from members, so now they are potted up and in there winter home.

I Have a light fiting to hang above, but unsure of what tube to put in?? warm white, cool white or ??? any ideas. I know an ordinery won`t do the job.
also moved most of the tenders in onto the racking only a few left to pot down.
“OH” relented and allowed me to keep the cuttings in the conservatory, so they should be safe. She has a heart after all “bless”.

So this is possibly the last I will see, Blacky and Swingtime.

So looking forward to next year.
Also had a result in B&Q went in for some name tags (yes name tags) I am learning from all you great teachers out there. Anyway I popped out to have a look at whats on offer and the garden guy was doing some tidying up. So I paid him a compliment saying how well he kept the place, and he asks am looking for anything in particular, so I say I like Fuchsia and he takes me to the reduced section and icks up a Tom Thumb and a Delta Sara, marks them down to £1.00 says have them on me. So there really are some nice people out there.

Now a question, any one reconise this one;

Hope everyone is having fun in there gardens.
Bye for now
