    Did a bit at home today in preparation for the allotment.

    Strengthened my home made greenhouse staging, it was weak at the back and sagging so have cross braced it. It's made from tanalised sawn timber so has lasted well so far and is screwed together with brass ( and some stainless today ) screws.

    Sown 70 x Leek - Toledo & 50 x Onion - Sweet White Spanish in modules. Makes a nice change for the greenhouse, have mainly grown Tomatoes in there over the years we have had it

    I love the galvanized buckets, great find!

    The Agapanthus are a bit of a challenge. At this time of year they ought to be nearing the end of a long sleep, whereas those ones look like they've been up all night.

    I think I would keep them cool but away from frost, get them outside when it warms up a bit (April, probably) and let them get over it. Probably won't get any flowers this year but if they settle down and put some healthy growth on in the summer you'll get a good show next year.

    I dug up more brambles. You probably think that's all I ever do in the garden and that my garden is really an overgrown jungle...................well, you'd be right on both counts.
    But I'm getting there. One day soon I'll start on the nettles
