Rootrainers, are they worth it

This is my first year of using them, so can't comment on durability yet.  But the inside of old loo rolls do the trick too, and you plant the whole thing.

Not my bellis daisies, they were Busy Lizzies - it just reminded me of your thread

Lovely pic Jack - but not an expert so can't tell you what it is.  Saw a red admiral here yesterday - never noticed one in this garden before so i was v excited.  Lots of peacocks and tortoiseshells And yellow ones too.

GH now washed and sparkly - plus half the "stuff" moved back in.  How does a GH get filled with so much "stuff" ???

Another lovely weekend, feeling a bit sunburnt.  Plus i have been spoiled by the Chicklets  Lots of flowers around here now - i love simple daffs for the garden, but think the double fancies look great in a vase

Advice for a small garden on a small budget!

Posted: 30/03/2014 at 11:05

My tip is to buy the clematis as small plants (the magazines/newspapers often have "free" offers - or the GCs do them 4 for £10 sometimes).  They get established much quicker than the expensive, bigger ones.  And plant them about 4 inches deeper than they were in their pot. Have fun - it looks like an exciting project

Morning all - won't it be lovely that it will be light til nearly 8 this evening .... Bliss

Today i need to wash the reconstructed GH and organise everything inside so it is just like it was, but backwards, if you see what i mean (in its new home it makes sense for everything to be swapped, like a mirror image).  

Had a dream about my Mum last night - funny how the old subconcious works.  She was on good form .

My chaenomeles has been beautiful this year, and stems last well indoors in a vase
