I'm trying them this year for the first time, the seeds have germinated in my cold greenhouse (with a  propogator lid on) but are still very small.Looking forward to seeing them grow whenever we get a spring or summer this year!! still very windy here in Gloucestershire!

woke up to a gale force wind blowing all my daffs about. A big branch from our Cedar tree has broken off and landed on my island bed and another branch has done its best to wreak my rose arch, the top half of it was waving around in the tree!! what a start to the day!!



How tidy is your garden?

I love having my garden realy tidy as we are overlooked (we are in a g/f flat and have the garden) I find doing little and often helps.  As I like having the wildlife too, I made a" wild" area with lots of rotting logs and a small pond for the frogs,

I would love to see more gardening programs, I am currently watching ABC of gardening on Catch up when I get fed up with all the tv trash we have to edure these days.

Would love to see the Victorian Garden again to see what the "Old Boys" used to do (in their suits and ties!!) Imagine gardening dressed up like that now!

Looking forward to seeing Monty and Carol on GW, love their enthusiasm!!

tomato plant pests

I have some seedling tomato plants, a few of which are being munched by what I can only describe as tiny, thin, white spiders. They are eating the leaves, and the infected plants I have thrown out. They are in my greenhouse, but I had the same thing last year on older plants that were growing on out doors.Has anyone else had this problem? any suggestions as to get rid of themwould be appreciated

Potting shed burglary

Posted: 31/03/2012 at 11:36

So sorry to hear of your break in. i had a garden bench stolen once, it turned up in next door's garden as a prank!If your shed is on you property, try putting up beware of the dog signs, burgulars rarely break in to property with a dog around as they are too unpredictable!
