I logged on to the account online where you trade in your tesco points for tokens. I am going to try it out tonight but seems the best deal so far for it

Thanks for that I was looking at tesco offer on it. 3 months for ??8 of tesco vouchers, which I think works out as 50p a copy?? Then once that expires if i don't like it, I don't have to remember to cancel.

It is wet at the moment but hoping the sun comes out! Hope you have a great St Patrick's

Hi, to fill in the gap between gardeners world coming through my letter box, I was looking at the garden news mag. Anyone have this or know what it's like??

Veg growing/New fencing/Greenhouse treatment??

Yeah it's a cedar Alton greenhouse.

Goodie about the fences, I thought I read somewhere they had changed the chemicals in pressure treated wood

Veg growing/New fencing/Greenhouse treatment??

Posted: 14/03/2015 at 08:39

Hi All

I have recently moved into a new house with a lovely 130ft garden!  The previous people loved their garden and left an old Alton greenhouse.  Its looking a little worse for wear but may hopefully do me a couple of years.  The guy mentioned that they had recently treated the greenhouse and summer house, but at the time it didnt occur to me to ask what he used.  I am now wondering if he used the same treatment on the greenhouse as the summer house and wondered if this would be safe to grow veg in now??

Also I am trying to size up the best area for growing my veg but next door recently replaced their fencing, and we are going to have to redo ours.... Are fence panels safe to grow veg near?

Many thanks

Hi All

I just gone to dig up some of my potatoes out of my big potato buckets and as you get down to the bottom of the bucket, where we have had so much rain, the compost smells stagnant.  Is this normal and will the potatoes still be ok to munch???

Sowing grass

Hi All

Two weeks ago, I put down an oversowing of grass seed.  Since I did we have had nothing but rain.  Will the grass seed have just got too wet and rotted, and will I need to oversow again?

Complete weed and feed near veg

Hi All

I am probably worrying for nothing but I am someone that does not use weed killers as I like to grow my own veg.  Unfortuantly the new OH uses weed killer and I have a few pots of potatoes, strawberries and peas in tubs up near the house.  Whilst I was at work he thought he would be helpful and put complete weed and feed on the garden lawn so I can have a nice lawn for the summer.  My question is that will him sprinkling that around hurt my veg and will I still be able to eat them??
