Plantsava watering systems

How long are you planning to be away and what are you growing in your containers?  I find that moving containers into a shady corner and giving them a good soaking before we go away gives us about 10 worry-free days and the plants are fine when we return.  Last May we even left tomato plants to cope on their own for a week, and they were fne too.

Good morning everyone   we saw lots of magnolias with lovely fat buds yesterday - travelling inland from here in the east you can track spring arriving 

Ear's on the mend thanks Lily - still sore and itchy and needs a salt-water bath each day but so much better than it was 

It looks like a gardening day today 

Eggs, and cooking with them

Lots of ideas for using up surplus eggs here 

Runner beans

Posted: 13/03/2014 at 07:05

I've done both, depending on the weather - if it's a late spring I start the beans off indoors and move to the coldframe before planting out.  If it's an early spring like this year, I may well sow direct in early to mid May - I'll just see what the weather's like.
