Success Rain. Great table.

You're not the only one with 'wash out' planters/baskets this year. In my case it was my dahlia pots, the sweetpeas & all the vegs!!

Next yr nemaslug again! J.

Hello plumstrudle I had no luck with sweet peas, last year loads of sweet peaS.

I use nemaslug not cheap but does work sometimes but a lot of rain might have wasted my first lot, made it a bit watered loged for them to work most of veg got eaten by slugs they like the wet weather. Not fair

It was raining or hot sun this year, I guess you painted the shed in the sun - it must have dryed fast and that might be why paint peeling already.

What colour did you paint the shed?

My honest seeds started from a seed swap at Whitchurch potato festival last year in january- normally the last weekend of the month.

So from seeds swap to my garden to grow and then collect seeds. Then off to seed  swap which is a good way to keep growing plants for youself and to pass on to others.

Thanks to seed swap if not I might not of grown honesty seeds.

Hi sam

I have got your seeds already to send tomorrow 2nd class post so you should get the seeds in a few days.

Thanks so far so good with sending seeds. Good way of getting seeds that you do not have or have not tried before for not too much money.

Enjoying seed swap so far

Hello Sam Glendinning

I am up for a seed swap with you

I have nasturtiums seeds (climbing) orange, red and possible yellow mixed and honesty seeds all collected from my garden. The nasturtiums are really good for bees.

I would swap for your delphiniums seeds (Blue, white and purple collection)

Let me know if you want to swap

Thanks gardengirl..

Hello

Really like the Petunia's hanging basket that how mine should of looked but did not a nice ball of differnt colours but will have to try another time, they all look nice.

I think the table looks good as they do look slightly different colours.

I have a cream raised bed which looks good but when it rains the dirt splashes up the sides so needs a wash and paint every so often, but when the grass gets put down around it might be better less dirt looking.

I have a purple raised bed like the colour on the end slat of the table nice and bold.

Wow!  What an amazing table.   The baskets do look good when fully flowering. 

Was the table painted with sample pots?    

I have painted my raised beds in many different colours after getting sample paint pots.
