Can anyone tell me what this is

Posted: 03/02/2013 at 14:11

I took cuttings form someone else's garden of some kind of large twiggy thing, did not have any leaves on then. I rooted them in a small plastic pot and leaves are coming and have rooted well, I am not sure what it is and would like anyone's thoughts of what it could be please - pictures below.

Sure birds are back a bit more today saw a small wren and lots of others, may be because the weather bit better and I was not out bird counting.

Anybody seen more birds out and about yet?

Seeds are up

More of my honesty seeds have come up bit by bit I think these seeds appear, still waiting for the proper leaves to come up. Long time for those seeds to germinate nutcutlet I suppose if fresh they germinate quicker

Train Station Gardens

Hello Kathy

We started Sholing station in September, there is a lot of people in your group of volunteers ours here only has 2 or 3 sometimes not many - but after a while of clearing the garden area that was unused for a long time before we started gardening, South West trains did a shrubbery cut back which helped with the brambles, still had to do a lot of digging and gardening that had to be done but we can see lots of bulb heads popping up flowers will be arriving.

 Here's some daffodils popping up and a foxglove.

It will be good when we get to see all our efforts we put in. We still have lots of weeding to do and will enjoy the rewards of the plants in flower and the time gardening as well. We also have our own garden to keep enjoying as well. 

Interesting video link - gardening does get some places colourful, makes spaces look better don't you think?

What a good lot of volunteering everyone does - so well done all.

Hello Catherine

Try this link below, we are swapping seeds here online if you want to join in with us you can. I thought that the magazine was going to be like that as well but just buy seeds and have help instead which is nice as well.

Composting and wormery

Posted: 30/01/2013 at 19:34

Managed to add another layer to my wormery now, when I looked in the bottom layer seeds were growing don't know what they are - have now moved to another part of garden, the compost must be good for seeds to be growing I guess.

How's your compost heap going?
