It is just brilliant that so many people are thinking about this really awful situation.

Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 05/03/2014 at 13:34

Clarington, I have made a rough list of things in my garden I could try to take cuttings from;

Bay, sage, prostrate form of Rosemary, French Lavender, Cotton Lavender (artemisia) marjoram, oregano, thyme, berberis (?) hebes, viburnham, winter flowering jasmine etc. I am sure some of them may be impossible to grow from cuttings, but we shall see. My other idea is; if the gardens/greenhouses are not ready for hot house veg this summer, I can always sell plants at my front gate to enable me to send cash for the flooded gardens

Almost cake - time bump

Carrots and turnips

Posted: 02/03/2014 at 15:06

I always grow carrots in 4 very large plastic pots; just harvested the last ones 2 weeks ago. The height of the pots mean that carrot root fly don't get to them plus I only use spent tomato compost mixed with sharp sand, so no large stones.

A couple of plant I.D's please

Clematis plants in containers

Posted: 02/03/2014 at 14:59

I put 2 patio clematis in 2 large pots last year; they were not very impressive, hopefully they will do better this year. I will be feeding them tomato food.

Where have the birds gone!!!

Victoria, which birds are eating the mealworms? I gave up feeding mealworms to the birds last year as none of them were interested.
