That was my favorite garden of them all Obelixx
Eeekkk ...I am sooo excited....., off to look at not 1, but 3 possible allotment sites. Have been on the waiting list for 2 years and today got the "phone call" from the site manager so going to meet her on Monday to check them out. (must be like buses, nothing for ages and then 3 come at once!!)Whats great is that this site is just along the road from where I live, so I can walk there and its quite small and cosy and sheltered. She has warned me they are a bit overgrown, but thats ok. Any suggestions what to avoid or look out for. I hope to get a shed and nearby water source. happy digging folks xx
Hi Peat re green slime. I read somewhere to just use tap water and not water butt
water on your seedlings. Hope that helps worth a try!
too right Kef
I have heavy clay soil so use loads of horse manure and leaf mulch and do it every year. Hard work, but it helps
I got the gardening by getting one of these little growhouses for Christmas! Enthusiasm abounded, so we then upgraded to a real (second hand ) glass green house. When my father in law come to visit, he was so delighted with our progress and the fact my glass house was chocker block with seedlings, he bought me a walk in growhouse. All 3 of them get used, especially this time of year.
Most of my daffs have come up, some I have already deadheaded but I've got a few that have come up "blind". I have given them a feed so hope this might help, any other advise? should I pull the bind ones up and re plant ?
