Mild but Nothing Special

Tuesday continued mild but very dull without a hint of sunshine all day. 

We made another one of those dangerous visits to the garden centre today to find some large pots for our newly arrived nectarine, to pot up our kiwi and for our yet to be delivered apricot. Of course we couldn’t resist the temptation of having a nose at the seeds. We’d watch Sarah Raven’s TV series trying to encourage everyone to sow wild flowers to attract beneficial insect. Some of the areas looked really pretty on TV and of course we couldn’t resist. 
We’d both been thinking the same thoughts that there must be somewhere on the plot that we could incorporate a wild flower mix to encourage all those pollinating insects we need to do their stuff on the plot. After a bit of deliberating we settled on a Mediterranean Mixture and Honey Bee Flowered Mixture.
