Free plants

a good way of getting plants is of course to pass some of your unwanted plants on to other gardeners in your area or to family and friends and they in return give you cuttings.The sun flowers seeds I pass onto my daughter who then gives them to the school and her friends,in return she gives me cuttings or plants.I also get cheap plants and often better plants at the side of the road sales.

There is a severe frost here ,which makes me thankful that I covered my vulnerable plants and put my pots away,looks pretty ,the frost that is.

May I introduce myself ?

well,thai who ever you are ,you stirred the pot here,I think which ever little plot of land you have ,its up to you what you create,whether it be with great passion for organic hippy type gardening or to plain ordinary stereo type ,whose right or wrong?help each with the knowledge you have,no one has to except what you say its not a religious revival and george hamilton ,monty don or percy thrower are of their time as we all are.god bless you.

yes thats right ,I have hundreds ,I planted some out and they are fine ,some I have in the green house ,just in case and will pass them on to other growers.you will find that they look stunning grouped together in a border rather than single.

Talkback: How to make a composting trench

Posted: 30/11/2012 at 15:17

my husband does a trench each year in a different spot ,this not only helps to spread the compost to each part of the veg patch  but rotation prevents the spread of diseases.

Don't  take to heart what people write on this page, we are all keen gardeners and love growing things and sometimes we get a little misguided by things.we all have op ions and voice what we feel ,it does not mean we are not interested ,we are.If you like we are all gardeners of the world responsible for the way  we farm or garden.We can learn from you and you from us in how to help each other that's what is important.so do keep in touch .

Hazel

Posted: 30/11/2012 at 12:53

My grandchildren planted some Hazel nuts some years ago and they all survived and grew into little trees.I did not like to dispose of them after such loving care and offered them to my daughters ,also to a young girl who was getting married and who wanted trees to plant in memory of her special day.I planted one myself which is the tree in my garden now ,and planted some into my sons hedge I was making him.This Tree has been more than worth it .Providing entertainment from the Squirrel who borrows  the nuts in my flower border to the birds who nest in it.It also provides me with nuts (when the Jays and squirrel are not borrowing them).I did think of cutting it down but I would lose a good Tree that provides a lot for wildlife and me.

just heard in the garden that clacking sound of the red wings they have arrived! I also saw in the churchyard a group of Jays sitting on  a tree,they are so colourful and normally they are quite shy but I got a close view today.
