Where are you Peanuts (I don't think your profile says) and what plants do you actually want / need? Perhaps there's a couple of members who can help / know of a company that might.

I was always told that "pears for heirs" meaning that you plant them more for the next generation than yourself as they are often quite slow growing.

I'm having a lunch time meeting at work in 15 minutes for which work have provided a huge feast of food of course I can eat precisely - non of it.

Weather for the week ahead, Brrr!!

Well I needed to have a tidy up in the greenhouse anyway. Looks like I've extra reasons why so I can put all the tenders in the plastic greenhouse within the greenhouse. I might consider putting a heater in there on frost guard if it looks very bad as I'm not sure the tomatoes will fit (that'll teach them to try flowering so early in the year).

We've had it surprisingly gentle this winter - no snow and very few frosts. I'm sure we'll survive a bit of drab weather!

Remember of course that we're approaching a bank holiday and weather reports HATE getting our hopes up that it might be nice weather!

I've just been told (aka three minutes ago and have rushed on here) by an allotment holder that if her garlic goes yellow she puts epsum salt on her plot as it indicates the garlic is lacking in magnesium.
