Great plan, didn't think of that!! So just holes in lid? Fill through neck put lid back on and turn into plant pot??

I may try that but unfortunately don't have a perminant greenhouse or cold frame and struggle for space. Lets see if they come first before I start thinking about where to overwinter.

So would you advise sow and prick out or sow in modules and leave for as long as poss!

Any yes I can't sleep, thinking about when to water the lawn with a weed killer!!!!!

Last year I did builders buckets with multi purpose abs tomato feed as soon as I got first fruits. That's what my mum said!!!

I don't like watering straight in to compost! Seems to wash soil off roots. I insert a plant pot or some such and water through that!

Sam - we are the same moved into a little village where the avg age is prob 65-70!!!! I'm 31 and trying to. Improve the garden. The back was heavily landscaped with just a lawn abs some pots on the wall sour rounding this then a dog kennel and a hot tub!!!! Hot tub in an excouncil village house!!!! The front had a silly statue lawns and standard plants in pots lining the drive. All looked pretentious.

We are making beds and trying to soften. I made boarders in the small back garden and really want the cottage look. Going to widen the boarders from 1 ft to poss 2 this year. My other half in not enamoured as its cutting down the lawn!!!! But I will wait till he is out!!!

We still have a smaller dog run but swapped the ugly dog run concrete for a raised veg bed. I have photos on here if you want to take a look. It's a thread called photos of my garden (I think!!!) it's just 1 year on and not much but I'm working on it when money and time permits!!

Oh! I just love the little rigida. Wondering if I should have a furtle around at my cuttings and see what's happening. Have you taken cuttings before then had leaves go partially brown but then just stay in that state??? It's most perplexing. Been around 2 months with no changes and no sign of new growth!!
