Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 07:38

gardenj, glad to hear your computer recovered and brilliant about all those seed packets.

Sweet pea, it does look awful; perhaps google Horticultural Societies in the area? Or just Gardening Clubs and there maybe an Allotment Group /Club /Society?

Orchard Lady, whereabouts are you based?

Rosie, I seem to recollect that you travel a bit for your work, are you ever near Northampton?

Lyn, it wasn't just the flooded houses, I think that far more gardens were flooded and also some gardens were bulldozed to create a barrier against the rising water.

New to gardening need advice

cleverduck, welcome. As it is your first year, I would recommend buying small plants from a nursery to get you going; for example I don't think strawberries are normally grown from seed.

I get Verve compost from B&Q 125 litre bags; I get it 10% off with my 'wrinkly' card, so if you know a pensioner persuade them to come with you!

Very small seeds, it is worth seiving the compost that you cover the seeds with.

In the main, the instructions on the packet will tell you quite a lot of useful info.

Hope all this helps
