At last I've managed to tidy up the greenhouse but the glass has still to be washed yet --(house windows first in line for that though! Very Happy )
I thought that the 3 plants in pots containing 'busy lizzies' weren't growing very well but when I took a closer look it wasnt 3 separate plants I had bought it was 3 tubs of seedlings and they were just crying out to be transplanted.
Now instead of 3 plants I've now got over 36 -that's if they grow.
Really pleased with myself getting all that done.
Next time at the garden centre I'll definately be wearing my spectacles!!

Nice to hear good news. I saw the title greenhouse and thought that you were going to tell us that the frost was so severe that you lost plants in your greenhouse.

I'm really pleased at how the plants are coming on in the greenhouse. I've still to plant out the tomato plants yet. The disappointment I had was with the tagettes seeds I planted-not even one of them has germinated so I'll need to start with them again.
This year is the first year that I havent used my own tagette seed collected from last years plants. The pkt of seeds I planted were bought at my garden centre. I'm so annoyed I forgot to to collect the seeds -(I thought I had d'oh! Think maybe they're in one of my safe places d'oh! d'oh! Very Happy )
Must try to get a photograph of all the plants in the greenhouse.

I will look forward to the photos, Emmy.

I'm just waiting for the deer to start chewing down my flowering buckeye. It's a pretty young tree yet. Every year they chew the leaves off and of course, when they do it the flower buds are eaten as well. The flowers from this tree are beautiful and a draw to my humming birds.

Several of my peonies have already bloomed and many more are getting ready to.

We've had some chilly days in comparison to those 80 degree ones last month.

Shame about the deer doing that to your 'trees' is there no way you can protect them from the deer?

Its good that the tree attracts the humming birds.
