Lumpy, uneven flowerbeds

Posted: 17/02/2017 at 12:02

I came on earlier to say dig in grit, manure and compost to improve the drainage and the soil, but laptop went on strike! Now Mark has said it. I don't think top soil is necessary unless your soil is very thin.

What now?

You will need to harden them off first. Put them outside in the daytime to start with, in the pot.

You don't need to start tomatoes so early. As you have a greenhouse I think it would be more practical to look into ways of heating it. Does it have an electrical supply? If not, there are paraffin heaters. If you get your seeds germinated that is only the start, where will you put all the baby plants? You need a frost free greenhouse. When the weather warms up seeds sown later will grow better and faster.

A second lovely day, but I was too busy with other things to be out gardening.

Clematis

But Montana clematis is category 1, which doesn't need pruning. It flowers on old wood. If it has got far too big and outgrown it's place you can cut back and trim after flowering.

I expect it's OK then, feathers can flatten. Maybe it needs several viewings before making an offer!

The snowdrop is "Grumpy" that I won in a gardening club quiz and the hellebore is one of the babies that self sowed.
