New Garden Project

Posted: 20/05/2015 at 16:29

Hi Carlos and welcome

What an exciting project!  Can you tell us which way the garden faces please?  Which areas get the most sun/shade etc.  Have you any idea what the soil is like under that paving?

Why use a seed tray

Well, you can with the bigger seeds (courgettes, sunflowers etc), and with the middle sized seeds (e.g. tomato, calendula) you can start them two or three to a cell and then thin them out, but it's pretty hard to sow individual foxglove or nicotiana seeds in pots, they're so tiny.

Weird one for me - help needed

I know Panda - I'm so chuffed   They do know that I'm a regular customer - and of course they know OH - I've just been told that I'll get my Privilege Card 10% discount too

Not only half price and free delivery, but I think it's the one already fitted out with the hooks for tools etc

Guess what OH and I will be doing on Monday - that's right, levelling the ground and laying the slabs - but it won't be too onerous - it's only a little shed

HELLO FORKERS!

Second hailstorm here, this time with thunder.  Just heard from Wonky that she and her father are sheltering in the garden shed with his power tools! 

OH has just phoned from work - the farm shop where he works is in the grounds of the garden centre where I ordered my shed the other day.  The man says it's out of stock and the suppliers have a big backlog of orders

 

Would I like an ex-display model from the GC, already assembled and painted the colour I like?  ............... For half price ...............to be delivered on Tuesday?????

Would I heckaslike!!!!!!!!!!!

......how do the police/council know what your doing? I live in a village and have never seen a policeman, (to be fair he did live abroad) would a neighbour complain to the authorities? ......

Possibly ... people complain enough when farmers flail hedgerows at the wrong time of year.

My lawn is sick - please help!

I think most of us probably have the same initial thought as Dave and are waiting for Amelia's answer to his question before offering advice.
