yes fairy girl it is wrong for people to do that.. but still i think lack of dicipline is the problem these days..

yes the blue you can see is the English Channel and bit of the sky.. hence why so windy here. whips up side of the cliff and straight over my garden.. thas why we hve had to enstall trellis as fencing or they blow down over winter.. as my new neighbours found out after htey put up 6ft panels.. did tell them..

it was satisfying.. and the path is still comin on. will put up more piccie when i can.. our harddrive went bang at weekend.. so have been busy trying to reinstall everything onto the new one.. and reclaim the lost data on the other one!!!!!

@gardengirl... many thanks. mine are already large and the roots..well they are very thick and fast growing.. so the space i gave them is about right then for the size they can become.

Yes urban that is fine.. it is normal the send who pays and return they send you some seeds back.. so everyone pays for it really.. or some do pay-pal if you do not have any to swap.. best to ask each member whose seeds you are after.

i hae two coldframes made from old greenhouse.. the old windows are sliding and tilting roof and the slatted one is fixed air vent.. wouldnt be without them as said.. they are great for protecting all plants from the harsh winter winds and frost that dont really need the warmth of a greenhouse..

i have got some of my seeds that i did i the swap growing now in the freenhouse.. i do hope they survive the winter.. they are in 2in high paper homemade pots.. which makes it easier to pot up as it doenst disturb the roots.. and the ppaper degrades in teh ground.. perfect..


Still got problems with Forum

thanks swisssue.. it took us a while to build that wall.. it took lot planning to get the design right... and we still managed to stretch the one oval shape.. it used to have a fence along the top of the brick wall.. but woke up one day to find it gone and thrown over the cliff.. so after being fed up with the constant damage we bricked it all up.. it was nightmare keeping all the dogs out that were on leads all te time.. but we want to take it down and re do all of it.. hopefully next year... so the fence posts can come out.

inbetween our wall and the bushes you see in bheind it is the coastal path.. then otehr side the bushes is the cliff edge!!!

Busy-Lizzie.. the back garden is the same side but is lawn for kids climbing frame.. greenhouses, and vegetable beds and drive with garage.. will add piccie of it when i can.. but not so gorgeous as the front..
