Oh dear far too much.
I need to do my hard landscaping (paving, raised beds etc) but keep spending my money on plants.

For me nothing mega just too many small ones.
My constraint is space, the garden is full all summer and the house all winter.

Am sorry to hear your news Dave, that's a miserable situation, been there myself but its far better to only have what you can afford at the time. Credit card interest rates are just evil.

Awe, sorry Dave! :( :(

Plants I have were bought last year. Bought only slug pellets and Pravado, also the odd Alpine this year.

Sown Calaendula (great show) , and bought other seeds.

I never splash out on big plants cos I'm too mean :oops: Just wanted to say sorry about your job Dave. Moving abroad would only be warmer as the job situation, here at least, is non exsistent. To give you an idea - a new Ikea is opening soon near me and for the 200 odd jobs available there are over 28,000 applicants.
