Composting and wormery

Posted: 15/01/2013 at 20:00

It has been a lot of hard work with my wormery it took a year to get right but I am getting somewhere with it now, much easier to have a compost bin I think as the worms just come up from the ground and water drains out nicely.

That nice of your neighbour to give stuff for your compost heap.

I am not doing much out in the garden at minute as a bit cold just sorting out compost bins and wormery and a bit of bird feeding and having a quick look a plants seeing what bulbs have popped up.

Hello Sam getting any where with your compost heap?

I think I will have to add another layer to my wormery as getting a bit fuller and the worms need to climb up another layer, so I will be able to use the compost from the bottom layer in spring may be great if I get to use the compost.

Seed Sowing Calander

Hello Sam

I write notes of what I have sown in a little book then I can look at when I sowed it to see how well and how long things take. sometimes it is good to note down - helps me any way to remember when I sowed it and to see when it is a good time to sow it again if I still have seeds left.

But I sometimes think I want to sow seeds just want to start sowing seeds and pick a pack to start off as long as I have some left just in case it does not grow well sure some things are up to when you want to garden.

Had quite starling about today and collared doves the squirrels about and lots of small bird and even a Jay they like the monkey nut I put out for the squirrels. I can sometimes know the birds sounds - not all the times long tailed tits sound nice

Seeds are up

Hey Sam I have managed to find my seeds of Larkspur - (the seven dwarfs) ones it's a new pack got miss placed but I have just found them. Few more seedlings of both Liatris purple and honesty have come up that's good

I normally sow a few seeds but most of them wait until March when my plastic greenhouse goes up.

Do I sow seeds of Larkspur in April like on the pack says outside or now?

Hello Sam

I can understand most of it - as learn Latin words of plants a bit when watching TV or looking through seed catalogues. Looks good but what a lot of seeds the chart shows for January to sow.

Like the chart says some seed packet instructions are different as to when to sow them depending on where you buy your seed packets from what company.


Can you understand the chart?
