Bottle Garden, any thoughts

I have a terrarium, so not completely enclosed, but ferns, ivy and parlour palms do well in mine

Station is looking great Ggirl - i might have to make a detour next summer to see it for real!

Mrs G - peeps dip in and out every now and then - sometimes life gets in the way 

Forester - have a vision of you in Biggles goggles complete with onion in hand!  Contact lenses do the job for me

Morning Morning - time to get a move on.  A london day today, so train station here i come.  Sleety rain here last night, but just above freezing so it is now wet, not white.  Not ready for snow yet !

What the heck - my purse isn't big enough - but one can dream

Lyn - i have tried the Hayloft plugs - they have made great healthy plants, but i have had to wait 2 years for flowers.  In the meantime i bought a couple of already blooming ones to tide me over (and curb my impatience).  Have to say the plugs ultimately seem to make better plants for me - but i have only ever used GC for the full grown ones, not a specialist nursery.

know what you mean about nurturing the little ones though - gives a great sense of satisfaction

Morning all - too cold for the poor cat to be outside.  This should end the last of the perennials that are still struggling bravely on.  Time for the garden to go to sleep.

do you think anyone would notice if i did the same?  Sleeping til March sounds quite appealing
