Will put in some fertiliser and see how we go. It was bought as a standard, not my idea but looked stunning when I bought it all those years ago. Thanks for tips

Well if he tried to garden in the house I would have kittens. But if I want to do it I know I will be careful and not slap compost about or let the dog snort in the compost bucket and it go everywhere.

If he asks I took the torch to the shed!! Don't want to encourage bad behaviour!

Bought 2 skummia's abs 2 hebes yesterday and some soil improver for my ckayZ I got v excited when I opened the bag, its lovely black stuff. Soil improver excites me, I think I need to get out more!!

I agree. Sign of the times. I tend to go for the veg grow bags now as they are tad larger.

I turn growbag s on the very end bang soil down and cut open then roll down the sides then plant beans in and put canes up in a tripod. You only need 3 growbags. Just remember to add drainage holes.

Tumbling toms for hanging baskets. Or a nestursion (no idea how it is spelt) but its an edible flower to top up your salads

Will get the thermometer in the conservatory. Just stuck the tip in my dahlia tray. It's sitting on some of that fabric capillary matting and I water from the bottom. It's currently reading 15degrees but the heater hasn't come on yet. In the day it's rather warm in there. The sun hits it and when I get home it's toasty warm. Will try and check the heat in the morning and when I get in from work.

Yes that's what my dad was advised to do especially as was windy at my front when it was planted. Just hoping it picks up and puts on
More growth this year. Will turn in some chicken pellets and water ASAP!
