Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 19/03/2014 at 18:33

philippa, I just had visions of GJ unable to get out of the house, with a mountain of seed packets covering her front door.

Are these the big pumps from Holland?

Spring soil.

MrsG, I use gravel boards (pressure treated planks) covered in chicken netting to walk on so that I don't slip.

Please help

Rosie, any more news about the flooded gardens? Are they starting to drain?

My only experience of paper pots was that they were very slow to rot when finally planted in the open ground, so I used to cut them down opposite sides with scissors before planting, so that the roots could get out.
