Bucket and container gardening

Posted: Today at 07:02

This method is fascinating and if you enjoy studying go for it. Everyone can do with learning more.

What I would suggest is consider the plants you want to grow; some plants don't require a complex maintenance system. 

I would use this method for growing fruit and vegetables rather than flowers for display.

Obs; I get fed up of my betrothed after four days you must be a much better person than I!!

Awful weather all day and I swear as I stood looking out the window you could see the grass growing.

What has happened to me?

B3 can comment on normal.

I can assure you I'm in my very early 30s so it's not all grown ups on this site.

I remember at secondary school we had a week to view homework type diary. Sometime similar would be fine in my opinion but perhaps you want something you can add photos too?

Manure and tomato plants

Posted: Yesterday at 08:29

Well rotted manure is brilliant for growing vegetables (and many other plants too). All you need to do if you're concerned us keep the tomatoes from physically touching the manure and of course rinse well before consuming.


5 fruits grafted on 1tree - Your opinion & advice??

I agree with the others; the theory is great but in reality it doesn't work well and will be very difficult to maintain.

Morning all!

The only way I can get photographs a low enough resolution on here that they are within the size restraints is to screen shot them and upload that. Does mean the quality of the image is lost but fortunately I tend to post more for amusement than to educate / inform.

His lordship family are over today; yesterday was a bit of a zombie day for him but I think he's about recovered now. Apparently in Japan they don't consume much dairy so he seems to be on a bit of a mission to stock himself back up.

What can I plant in containers on roof terrace...?

When you say how how large do you mean? Big plants need big roots so I wouldn't want to suggest something inappropriate to your pots.

The not having to tidy up after a plant will be tricky. Everything tends to regenerate as is the way of life.

Have you considered trellis?
