Hi from the North East

Hi Mark welcome to the forum. You will deffinately get plenty of advice on here. There are some very knowledgeable people on this forum and you will always get a good reply and everyone is very friendly no matter how often you come on here. I too love Japanese Maples and most of my garden is in pots which makes it so easy to weed. 

Cucumber seedlings

Posted: 09/04/2013 at 17:46

I haven't sown my cucumbers yet but I got mine from Lidl. £3.99 for 4 seeds is very expensive. I paid just 99p for 10 seeds, I have grown these for the last two or three years and I have had wonderful cucumbers. Hope yours are ok though good luck.

Who pays for Things

I don't care who paid for Monty's greenhouse I think it is lovely and I wish I could have one that size but my garden isn't big enough. 

Feeling good

I have been in the potting shed these last couple of days sowing seeds and potting on and although it was really cold it was great to be out in the garden again. I heard on the weather forecast this afternoon that it will be warmer next week, mind you I am in the south so it might take a little longer to get to those of you in the chilly north.  It does make you feel good though to see the sunshine.

cats!!

If Jeyes works that will be on my shopping list. Cats make such a mess of the lawn. I've got curry plants in the garden that is said to keep them away, well no they don't but the plants smell really nice when it's been raining so thats a bonus.

I've got Mrs Popple, I've had this in my garden since 2003 and it never lets me down. It is very hardy and flowers very well. I cut it back this time of the year and it quickly sends up new shoots. I love it.

Windchimes

Posted: 12/03/2013 at 18:31

I had a wind chime in my garden that sounded lovely during the day in a gentle breeze. But at night it really got on my nerves and one night when it was really windy I got so fed up with them I got out of bed and went out side to remove them, now they just hang in the greenhouse.
