I love shopping … and I love buying new plants and gardening things! When I went to Ferndale on Saturday I also bought a plant stand – I’ve wanted one of these forever. I see so many of these in gardening magazines and they look so great when they have lots of lovely plants on them. They delivered it yesterday and within minutes, we started putting our empty pots on it and pots we’ve been collecting for the day we got our “plant stand”. And I added the few “unplanted” plants I have – and look, its already full! Well almost … of course now I want to organise everything properly, get some plants to put in the little pots and make it look pretty! (= more shopping!)

I added my new Tomato Plant to it and I’m going to plant herbs and things in some of the little pots. I have seeds – Coriander, Sweet Basil, Chives and Parsley, so this will be my first attempt at planting from seed. Should be fun!

Here are the “before” photographs:
