Your barrows look just so good, The Estate, as do your cinerarias. :D What's your secret for keeping the barrows going so well?

replanted twice a year, all the old potting mix taken out and and given a make over, get rid of all the old roots, weds ect and then a big hand full of, B & B, manure, dynamic lifter and top up with fresh potting mix, the very old old potting mix this through into the garden.

P.S. your not far from me can always save a barrow, but will have to paint yourself, have given a few good ones to new homes.

Thanks, Thee - I do have one going at the moment with succulents, which seem happy so far. That was after trying bulbs, and then a mixture of lemon balm and allysum. The latter might have worked if I had remembered to water a little more often... Perhaps even watering it might have had an effect. :roll:

My barrow certainly isn't as pretty as yours - as it's decorated with cement...

Wow, that's a pretty creative use of wheel barrows, very impressive.

The whole garden looks very nice and now I see where you get your Avatar from.
