I line them with an old compost bag inside, but my main problem is the magpies pulling it to pieces to make their nests!
The ones at Arley Hall have made it through this mild winter. There were also loads of them growing at Ness gardens
The stick ferny ones are Sundew
Parsnips won't be ready until the end of the year, carrots it depends but they aren't instant and neither are beetroot.
Radish are the only things that should be ready about 4 weeks after sowing
It depends on growing conditions and variety, usually more than 6 foot in a greenhouse
Lamium maculatum 'White Nancy' is good ground cover, its a dead nettle with white flowers and silvery leaves. Geranium phaeum 'Album' has white flowers which will shine out from the shade
It should stop them from growing out sideways
So don't pinch out the tips only remove side shoots
I think they require peat based or just peat compost and rain water
I do what Verdun says too
