is that  just planted in the top or in the sides? it is amazing


Now, this is something for another year. my best results have been from sowing the seed directly into the baskets in autumn and overwintering them as the others. Probably two packets of seed in that basket.

 I was asked recently about the hanging basket sweet pea 'sugar and spice'.....this is quite a good example.

Runny lives in a horizontal world  I think it is the devise she uses as it's too early to blame the sherbert.  

Me too...the doctor says I must try to give it up.

Sorry, forgot to say what a good pic of your amaryllis, Runny  Would have looked even better if you could have rotated it.

Listen to aunty Dove.

Potatoes should be planted so that when they emerge from the soil, the danger of frost has passed. Many gardeners plant their potatoes far too early in the hope that they will raise an early crop but frost is a major enemy of emerging potato plants and will cause them significant damage.

Lesson according to uncle David.

Tesco have runner beans at this time of year....they're grown in Kenya.

Sow your seed in the open on May 12th, they'll be ready to harvest as soon as anyone else's.
