Just to share.... Been out in my pj's and took some pictures of my hellebores. One from b&q (pink one), and a Niger I think from a lovely lady in the next village that sells her plants. Was a free gift!!

If a PC person could pls help to download and attach!!! I'm an iPhone user!!!

Get down to pound stretcher a 4ft x5ft ish greenhouse is reduced to about 24!! Mine was up last year and going to hopefully put up this!! My tomatos will go on when everything else is starting to come out. That's my master plan albeit not up so its all in my head.

I want my sweet peas to show, it's annoying me now! Nothing at all, not even slight cracks in the compost! I'm worrying I'm going to have a naked arch when my OH went to so much trouble to put it up on his own!!

I don't have a massive garden so its east to potter in my nursery of an evening and morning before work!!! Nursery -aka conservatory!!

Carrots are in a big dog bath that I prepped with used compost, new compost and sharp sand then fleeced over.

Only seeds not up now are the sweet peas. Only thing left to sue is my beans but may weekend is my date and I'm sticking to what my grandad always told me !

My lettuce are in a pop bottle and are now about an inch tall!!! Yay!!! Just neeeeeeeed to get my plastic greenhouse up now!!!

Oh and my perennial seed is not up but only set about 4 days ago!!

That made me smile!!! Would just turn up in my jodhpurs and riding boots, that may do the trick!! You know I have no idea how big tyres or the inside but are, so no clue if would sit on top.

Does earthing up make for bigger crops or just shield from the frost. Mine are in the conservatory and will then go in my plastic greenhouse, so hopefully won't get frost damaged!

Don't seem to have time to watch tv so no clue if blue Peter is on.

Question for you all. I planted tatties in builders buckets and they are just showing. I fancied earthing up but how do I make my buckets taller withou spending lots on equipment. If not poss then I won't earth up. Just wondered if it would increase my crop. Any views or ideas??

I. 'Borrowed' some from mum but they never made it back!!! I would appreciate knowing how to make drip feed water solutions for everyday or while I'm away!

More ideas please everyone, lets share and inspire each other. Especially if it saves us money!!!
