Think 30s & 40s are termed "pre war"

"BTW, how old do you have to be, to be classed as antique?"

Only found this out recently but anything from 1950s -1970s can be loosely called "mid century"

I like Monty but again he was the presenter when I started gardening

Gardening is great and I'm sure you will have loads of fun. I like growing from seed or cuttings and grew some veggies last year for the first time.

I would definatley go for veg that you like. I had great success with runner beans last year and found them easy to grow and a great harvest. I'm still eating them now and it won't be that long before I can grow them again. I found beetroot easy too.

Best of luck and this a great place to learn stuff

Great a new seed swop

Anyone done any gardening today?

No now gardening apart from looking out of the window and thinking of nice it will be in the Spring and Summer. Be nice to start sowing seeds now but I've learnt not to do it so early and my new place doesn't have any deep windowsills either

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning everyone Beautiful but frosty day here, but very much looking forward to doing some gardening again, roll on Spring. Have already noticed that the days are drawing out ( even if it's only a bit).

I've moved house again, life on the hill was just too expensive, cold, dark and hard work!  Think I've managed to catch up with people living in the 21st century with heating, hotwater and internet. I've got a small but great blank canvas of a garden which actually gets some sun. My last place only had sun on the garden for 6 months!

I never get the chopped bags of onions, even worse.........chopped frozen onions, just don't get why you would buy them.

Have a good day everyone

Not sure what to do with early growers

My wallflowers are growing quick and quickly out grow small pots. They will be fine outside, either pot them up in bigger pots or maybe plant them out. Don't know if you know this but if you pinch out the growing tips you will get a lot more bushier plants and flowers next year.
