    Can’t cope with that snail picture-just too terrifying! But the plot is impressive, is the fence to keep rabbits out?Just took my first Sarah Raven delivery today-some lovely little plants, carefully packaged, all potted on till my flower patch is ready-I seem to be digging up the remnants of an old outbuilding at the moment so progress has slowed.

      Keep at it!!! Found another snail today…after the little monster had devoured a tray of zinnias. :(

    I find those pot holder tray thingies provide lots of hiding places for snails and slugs so have stopped using them for anything vulnerable. I am growing white borage for the first time, too, and am loving the way the seedlings have got so big so quickly. I think it is going to be THE flower of the season – we are way ahead of the curve! x

      I’m pleased to hear you are using white borage as a cut flower…I was going to ask if you used borage at all. Ours are for the eating but obviously better if we can use them as cut flowers too. x

    The Higgledy Empire seems to be getting ever larger, no wonder with such an efficient army!

      The empire is still no much bigger than that huge Island bed someone has just had dug!!!
