Happy new year to everyone from me too.

New Years Day flower count

Posted: 01/01/2013 at 17:43

Happy new year to you all. Did my very first new years day flower count

Erysimum 'Bowles Mauve' still going strong, primoses, violas, different types of wall flowers, but the cloth of gold variety really strong and a daisy type thing.

Hi Sasha, have a great evening and let us all enjoy some drier days. It feels like it has been raining for weeks.

Some happy cats there Maud, I've got 2 kittens maybe they are a bit young for that sort of thing

Just noticed how I can use the christmas smilies, I did know that I was short sighted but not that much!!

What's the weather like in your area?

It's finally stopped raining tonight- last night there was very strong winds- so strong that some of my wall flowers were coming out of the ground this morning. Looking forward to some promised dry & sunny weather to start 2013

Just thought of another one- stake tall flower plants as they are growing not after they get bashed and fall into a messy heap. I know it makes sense.

SantasLittleHelper & Nutcutlet, I'm going to sow some white tall snapdragons seeds tomorrow. This year I will not sow the whole packet into 3 small trays and then prick them out and try and and off load them to any one who will have them

Very good new years evening to all. Showed my face at work, but left promptly after lunch. I'm very excited at the prospect of a dry and sunny day tomorrow, will be sowing my first seeds. I know it's early but just can't wait any longer

 Flo re the ironing shedule. I am blessed with a strong allergic reaction to ironing, to the point that I am unable to have one in the house

Caz- yes I too have to pay 5p for a carrier or 10p if I want a really strong one! I've sort of got to used it now.

Watched the making of the new Snowman with Raymond Briggs, really enjoyed it. Saw the whole programme after....... lovely, something about animation drawn by hand.

Completely new to veg growing

Posted: 29/12/2012 at 18:48

Have consulted OH who will be creating this space, and have been informed that "Of course we will be growing runner beans"- so thanks gardengirl and artjak  for the info. Very useful. I have been informed that we will also be growing some tatties.

Dove- I've not heard of French beans before, they look do look nice and tasty.The plot is one of the sunniest places in the garden (if the sun shone).

Bjay(?)Tinkle- that's why I've been thinking about sugar snaps, I love them but there is no way I'm going to pay £1.50-£2 for just one fork full of them Square foot gardening is something I will be looking into.

artjak- I've never eaten a globe artichoke and would struggle probably to name one if I saw it but it's size as you describe it would rule it out,now if that was Cosmos Purity plant.......

unfortuneltly I do not like fresh tomatoes at all. There was a point in my life that I couldn't even bear them to be on my plate. Real shame as I think they are really easy to grow if there was some sun.

 I've only had a garden for 2 years and have only grown flowers, feels like I'm embarking on a whole new world
