Minor successes



I am very excited about my tulips this year.  I have bought some from Sarah Raven this year and planted them in pots and they are doing great.  Last year the ones I planted in the border hardly appeared at all, though they are doing abit better this year.

The rain has got the better of me again today so I have retreated in doors.  I cant even do much in the greenhouse until I can move some of the seedlings out to the cold frame for harding off and I cant do that until I can plant the hardened off seedlings out!!  I have some lovely Pak Choi plants waiting to move out in to the big wide world, well the cold frame.  I havent decided what to plant them in yet.  I will try a few in the border but the rest will be in a container of some sort or a grow bag.

I live in Malvern, Worcestershire and am a very keen gardener. I started the Patient Gardener Blog in January 2008 as a way of recording what was happening in my garden and connecting with other like-minded people. I started a second blog PatientGardener 365 January 2013 in order to try and post a photo a day to capture what is growing in my garden or places I have visited
