Growing flowers in my veg plot?

Posted: 05/03/2014 at 21:32

I always seem to have self seeded marigolds in the veg beds; they apparently keep aphids away? Anyway, they attract pollinators which is good.

Why are you leaving the plot fallow for a year?

are sedums easy to grow from seed?

You need to make sure that included is the 'stand' without that you don't have the height to get your watering can under the tap, also included should be the system for interrupting the downpipe. When my builder and I bought from them a couple of years ago, we got a deal which was ; buy one, get one half price.

If you now compare prices with Wickes, B&Q etc, check that the stand and the downpipe adaptor are included; a lot of firms count them as extras. Also check the litre capacity of the butt, they vary.

On another thread this p.m., I have mentioned this; I may change from domestic heating oil to gas cylinders for my Central Heating. These Cylinders need fireproof housing Hooray; I can have a sedum roof. I'm thinking zinc or galvanised steel, covered with sphagnum moss and a little compost. I saw it on a tiny shed of one of my clients, a wooden shed, I doubt if the roof had more than 2" of soil and it worked very well.

Also your local water supplier for water butts; if they are no good, I think I got mine from Yorkshire water.
