well know i can order them but it insists i pay £4.95 postage on top as well.. so not really worth it for me.. that makes £10.55.. so something is wrong with it.. it clearly states on magazine that it is just £5.60 for them..

Hi i am doing a project for tech and i wanted to know how you garden when you have

- limited space

pots at different heights and use the fences and walls to climb plants up or make a wall garden.

- window boxes

plants that do not need much watering and are wind/sun tolerate..

- small garden

borders and paths of different materials with small lawn/patioe area.. create curved borders  and height to make it look bigger...

- small greenhouse

keep what i am growing to what i really want.. and spread things over the growing periond by gorwing plants that seed at different times.

what would make it easier?

being able to afford a gardener...

and what things do you use the most?

hand hoe, trowel, fork, kneeling pad, composter, hoe, secarteurs and  cutters/shears, lawn edger, lawnmower, and lets not forget gloves.

other problems?

foxes, badgers diggin up the lawn, sandy soil very free draining needs constant mulching for nutrients, strong sea salty winds off the cliff batters plants and resticts what will grow here.. neighbours not keeping their weeds under control.

thank you
