Is the checkerboard terrace black and white or 2 other colours...I'm thinking just black and white plants. There is a recent thread on here, started by Verdun I think about black plants. That would give you a very modern, stark look.

What have I got here

Nut, I know you don't grow veg, so it can't be Chard can it?

Have they got one of those clear plastic lids on? If so, they should not need more moisture than was added when you first sowed the seeds.

xHose ~ any good?

Is xhose that strange wrinkly kind of hose? If so, a friend has one and he likes it I think because it doesn't kink.

Personally, I have a hoselock one on a reel to which I have added some ordinary hose to increase the length. This does kink sometimes, but it is about 13 years old.

You ask how often to water them, do you mean when they are actually in their final growing situation? I would just make sure they don't dry out if there has been no rain.

Soil quality and safety

Dove, that sounds so sensible and I bet a lot of people will have had that problem. The only thing I would add is to wear rubber gloves when cultivating the soil for the first year or so at least and to always wash your hands well after gardening; this applies especially to pregnant women.

gardenjeannie, we can only do what we can do. I hate the thought of you worrying about this. Perhaps we should all put on our thinking caps and try to improve the situation.

When it comes to plants though, as they are a perishable item if not nurtured, it may be as well if the gardeners down in Somerset are not inundated with too many plants all at once.
