What to grow in vacated veg beds....

Posted: 07/05/2014 at 09:23

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.

Got it! Good sized garden then. The trees give it a lovely country feel.

Morning all.

What a horrible dream KEF!

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?

Lovely garden Gilly. Sometimes you have to wait a bit for each stage when downloading photos.

Is that your front garden Chris? Looks big, do you walk across the lawn when you come in? Looks as if it's in the countryside.

The average temperature in Sicily in Jan and Feb is 13° and July and Aug is 29°, so perhaps they grow earlier in the year.

Anybody watching The Big Allotment Challenge

I love asparagus and buy local here in France when it's in season (but it's more expensive) and from South America otherwise. They have to make a living there too and they can provide it out of season. I had my own bed for 18 years though, until bindweed took over.

I enjoy the Allotment Challenge as entertainment, not a serious gardening programme, which it isn't. But I think they could have made it so and made 2 programmes out of it, one being the gardening bit in more depth.

What is it?

Could be a sunflower.

I hate snakes, ever since a viper bit my son when he was 11 and he nearly died.

Sowed a lot of seeds in veggie garden, weeded, sorted greenhouse.

That was perhaps a daft question! I should have looked at david's posts before, lots of lovely photos from him of his garden in Reno, Nevada, a lot of them I'd already seen. An experienced gardener.
