Must have natives?

The suggestion of honesty is a good one and has reminded me that sweet rockets are lovely plants too  Shasta daisies did well here also. I like forget me nots, they do self seed a lot but very easy to pull out and transplant somewhere else.

Cold frames and greenhouses

Posted: 21/10/2013 at 12:24

Hello, I'm a cold frame fan myself. The ones I have are not the traditional on the ground type. There more of a sturdy mini greenhouse type design, my oh makes them out of bits and pieces. I'll try and find a pics of one of them for you.

If I had more space and money I probably would go for a greenhouse as well as the only thing with my coldframes is that you can't get in them, so when the weathers bad............no gardening. Up to now I've done all my seedsowing etc in them

Having said that OH picked up a greenhouse frame off freecyle and has constructed a sort of square shaped polytunnel using sheets of thick polyethene. It's near water tight now and it's great to be able to walk in there

I have couple of large beech trees at the bottom of the garden and have found that things like primoses, bugle, campions, foxgloves seem to do well.

Sorry to hear about your cat Zoomer, very upsetting. I have a patch called diggys bed,  it was once where my rabbit lived, someone took him Try and keep it mainly white, that spot in the garden is always diggys bed

 

So exciting!

Nice pic Forester I have a tiny pond, to call it a pond is a bit of exageration really, more like a ditch but things do  find their way, no frogs but I do see some toads from time to time
