Pride before a fall!

well done but remember cyclamen like cold room,mist each day and don't let it dry out.when finished plant in garden or keep corm for next year.They do not like heating or over watering (that's leaving it paddling in water).keep going!growing anything from seed is an achievement.

Watterlogged soil, everything rotting

its difficult because any garden that's had the deluge we have had this year could not with out major drainage cope.Plant pots are fine as long as they have the right mix of soil and grit as they become waterlogged too if they don't have the right drainage.If its not your garden you need to ask the owners how they want their garden to be.

Completely new to veg growing

Posted: 30/12/2012 at 10:21

Get a good gardening book to refer to and also refer to this handy site for information.Start with easy veg and fruit and before long you will be expert,The main thing is to enjoy what your doing and learn from your mistakes(you will make some) and ask those who garden locally to you to give you advice on the growing conditions of your area.(good way of making friends).and  of course always enjoy a hot cuppa while viewing your results.

Ooh I love a bargain!

I like the plants that are sold off  in supermarkets,had a few could bargains there,it makes you feel so much better about spending.

Windchimes

I have to say I hate wind chimes that are like doorbells gone wrong.My neighbour ,bless,has these annoying clanging tubes blowing about and disturbing the peace.He does not sit in  the garden and does not have his windows open to listen to the noise of it! I will have to admit to dislodging it one night (with a long pole) where it now lays forlorn  on the floor,he has not even noticed.
