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.


What's the best thing to do with daffodils when the flower has died

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 ?

I used to ride in Epping Forest. It was such a beautiful, magical place.

What shall I be doing out in the yard?

Hi Terrafirma, you could get yourself a little plastic growhouse,(they dont take up much room) and start sowing some petunias and annuals etc for pots and baskets to brighten up your yard, I will give you something to get into and its so satisfying knowing you have grown your own! This is how I got into gardening,
