I had a good day in the garden yesterday despit it being so cold. I had some trailing Geraniums that needed putting in my tubs, I got those in and I potted up one lot of Begonias ready to put out later. This year I am using some water retaining mats in the tubs to help keep the tubs moist and to save on water as we are on a meter. We do have rain tubs (4) but still run out if its a dry summer. These mats come in pack of four and cost about £4.00 but I read at the weekend you can use babies disposable nappies for the same purpose so will give it a go as they will be cheaper.
I have 14 more Begonias to pot up and quite a few Geraniums so will not have to buy many plants this year.
