Sowing The Seeds Of Love

Hi everybody! It's less than a month 'til the official start of Spring which is super-exciting! Already plants are pushing through the ground, buds are appearing on shrubs and slowly the garden is waking up from its winter sleep. Let's have a big stretch everyone as it's time to dust down your seed trays, rummage through your seed boxes and get sowing. If you've never sown seeds before, don't worry, I will talk you through the process, making it super-easy. Plus you don't have to have any fancy equipment as I have some neat alternatives to share with you. Come on, let's do it...

February Gardening - Daddy Guest Post

Lulu has granted me temporary custody of the blog for today as she's helping sow some vegetable seeds with her mummy and I'm sure there'll be a blog post about it soon. In the meantime you're stuck with me.

Winter Jobs In The Garden

It looks like Spring hasn't arrived quite yet but you know me, always desperate to get outside in the garden. There are always jobs to do, whatever time of year it is. I know 'cos Mummy is always telling Daddy all about them ;) So here is a list of things that can be done, both for grown ups (ie Daddy) or for littlies like me, in between rain showers...

Get wrapped up cosy and get outside. It's fun!

An Apple A Day...

Hi everyone! All my regular blog followers will know I love apples, especially the ones you can pick straight off the tree and eat there and then. There is nothing quite like picking your own apples and eating it right away. If you're not as lucky as me to have apple trees in your garden, don't worry, now is the perfect time to plant your very own apple tree and you could be picking your own this summer! The clever people at The Telegraph always have lots of excellent tips on gardens. Here is their lovely insight into the best apples to grow...

Lulu & The Sunflowers

As I might have mentioned last week, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! I am now a big, grown up two year old. I don't know where the last year went. Mind you, at least I can read back on my blogs to see what I have been up to ;) Anyway, M&D threw me a wonderful party at the weekend and my lovely friends came along to celebrate. At the end I gave them all a party bag which contained something very special indeed...

I wonder if I can grow this
many sunflowers in my garden!
