End of the season thoughts

First I must get all my seed posted out.

Finish  sowing all seed  into trays for next year

Then Borders to finish weeding,.plants to be dug up and rearrange in Other part of garden ,plant out bulbs, all pots of plants,repot tubs ,collect all late ripening  seed,tidy out/clean-up all five greenhouses,begin the steady rake up of leaves for leaf compost.

All in all a general tidy up.

  1. Then hopefully shut the door on winter and browse the seed , and flower  plants on the internet for  next year s garden  as the cycle starts'   once more.

Moles in my compost bins.

I've never heard of moles in the compost bin, but I have known of rats in the compost bin.

I also thought that moles habit was tunnelling and traveling around - not much room for tunnelling in compost bins I'd have thought

But then again I could be wrong

Why am I so special,to,the forum?

Meconopsis Lingholm (Himalayan Poppies) seed

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 01:16

Are these so different from other poppies?

The majority of my poppies  appear to flower first year from a spring sowing,  I have never tried  t he.   blue poppy , but it looks worth the challenge! 

over winter succulent

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 00:43

I bring mine into a cold green house anytime now before the frosts.I don't water them throughout winter I find they usually have sufficient water in he surrounding compost  as they are all in a gritty free draining mixture I stand them on capillary matting  .

I drape a treble layer of fleece loosely over the entire plant or plants if they are put close  together tucking it round to keep them snug. 

Might not work for everyone but it works for me.
