Hello , like the idea of growing radish between carrots will give that a go , great believer in Companion planting 

Never had much success with lettuce until bought this planter made by students at a Mencap garden we visit at Stack pole near Tenby 

keep it by conservatory door and keep sewing

Hello all my wife used to work for a charity about 20 years ago and attended Chelsea , Hampton Court and Gardens World live regularly 

Chelsea always was Corporate , Gardens World was for ordinary gardeners like myself and Hampton Court a bit of both 

Only been to Chelsea once and it was fantastic , been to GW live lots of time never been to Hampton Court in fact that was the one my wife liked the best

Good morning , extremely windy , heavy rain forecast this afternoon 

Just took 2 potatoe sacks out of g/h , no more room for soil and foliage nice and tall , certainly look promising but never know until you empty it , grow these in compost for village show 

Have a good day in garden

We are off on holiday from Thursday so no gardening for a couple of weeks 

What is your weather like?
