The little one loves to water my allotment she also does sowing seeds and planting and she is only 4. 

Ground Elder

my allotment was covered with the stuff two years ago and I used round up ultra 3000 on it and after repeat applications it is now clear but the cost was two bottles at £40.00 a bottle,mind my allotment measures 100 feet long and 30 feet wide.

I only used two bottles because the first application i used a strong measure and this just burned the leaves so no liquid was able to soak down into the roots.

if you are going to use round up only mix what it says on the bottle.


Greenhouse Glass

I pay £3.00 for a 2 by 2 pane of glass

lawn help please

builders rubble is the worse, it will burn the roots of plants including grass make sure all rubble is removed I would leave the small stones as it will improve drainage as long as no cement is on the stones.

do not cut the grass too more than a third of the lenght of the grass.

do not water at night.

do feed twice a year 1st in the spring then in the autumn

water in the morning before the sun gets to hot,best to use a water timer on your hose.

Don't want my greenhouse blowing down..

I agree with bob and my green house was put up this way,I also added concrete to all corners of the base when the greenhouse was fitted.


Like bob says measure corner to corner it all should be the same size if it is not you will have problems fitting the glass

All potted up.

I have a plan and a design.

I have about 22 different plants most are perennial.

large part of my garden are for perennial plants which I have only just cleared the lawn off it this year.(soil is now perfect after a lot of hard work)

I do have a lot of pots and hanging baskets which will be filled with the annuals

Had a busy week with plants.

I have had deliveries every day for the past 10 days and in total I have 596 plants,

these are all flowers some perennial,some annuals and a few shrubs.

This year I am changing the look of my garden,so should have some good photos when garden is finished.

I have received my plants off two companies one is jparkers who are the best and the other is thompson and morgan but these are very poor young plants.

easy fill

Has anyone got any easy fill hanging baskets?

I have just been to my garden centre and these look great,but at £7.00 each a bit expensive so I came home and searched the internet and found the same ones for £12.99 plus £4.99 delivery but this was for 4.

I did order them after I watched a video about them,and you can get 17 plants into one basket.

I did say I may be wrong!

but I would use round up gel, and not the spray.

Top soil needed
