Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 14/02/2014 at 14:40

Artjak, what a great idea, what a lovely person you must be.

Wish I could help, but not very practical living where I live, France.

Roses

I haven't started mine yet, usually raining too hard. Ok until well into March to prune.

Greenhouse base

Posted: 14/02/2014 at 14:27

Mine is on an aluminium base that was supplied with the greenhouse. It has fixations like big tent hooks and where each one is I had to dig a hole, fill it with concrete and put the big tent hook thingy into the concrete when it was wet so that it's set in.  The aluminium greenhouse then screwed onto the base.

I have shelves and a potting bench on one side, wooden (treated) pavers up the middle and earth on the other side that I grow things in, tomatoes etc.

Snowdrops are all out and other bulbs starting. Some hellebores too.

This is a daffodil wood in March which turns into a bluebell wood in April, near where my daughter lives in the North of France.

Good morning all. Lots of things I'd love Dove, Marmite, peanut butter, a good wander around Waitrose, my favourite supermarket, but I'm too far away

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Panda and Clari, those things jumped into your baskets because they are very good buys, you are such clever girls. I wonder if Aldis in France have heated propagators at that price. Perhaps I'll have a look tomorrow!

Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

Posted: 13/02/2014 at 18:38

I've sown more since last post, gazanias and 3 sorts of petunias. The Busy-Lizzies and Lobelias have germinated. They are tiny.

Rhododendron

Posted: 13/02/2014 at 18:31

That is exactly what happened to my dwarf rhododendron in a pot. The drainage holes blocked up and the leaves went droopy and then fell off. Wished I hadn't put off dealing with it (it was heavy) because it died. The soil was quite smelly.

Onions sets in modules

Posted: 13/02/2014 at 18:26

I would remove the whole module. How wet is your garden? Wouldn't want them to rot. I don't plant my onion sets until the end of March, or even early April, straight into the ground in the veggie garden, you will have onions earlier than me, but mine ripen when the weather is warm in summer and they store very well. Didn't need to buy any onions last year.
