What is the best way to remove seedlings from a propogator?

Posted: 07/05/2014 at 09:30

You ease each one out carefully using a pencil or a plant label to dig it out with, holding by the leaves, not the stem. Have little pots waiting filled with compost. Make a hole in the compost, lower the seedling in and gently firm the compost around it. Then water using a fine rose. This is called "pricking out". Takes a bit of time, but I enjoy doing it.

Laying turf on hardcore

What to grow in vacated veg beds....

I would make a salad patch, an asparagus bed and a strawberry bed. All have been said, but that's my choice.

Potential disaster - vole appearance!

Oh dear. Are you against poison for voles? I have moles in my big border. Have caught some with traps but they never go. They make tunnels under plants. Then the plants get too dry and die.

Verdun's reminded me, 5 weeks or so and we'll be on holiday in England. Heading for Shropshire and David Austin's rose nursery. Anyone know of any good gardens to visit in Shropshire?
