veg garden planning software

Posted: 27/08/2012 at 19:14

I haven't used any veg planning software.

For me, I've seen enough of what you have to say to be my first ignore on here, best thing to do with the likes of you. Very rude but also very sad

My Thompson & Morgan seedlings

Hello yvette, they are small when they first arrive, but after potting on they do really well. Kate is right for finding a sheltered spot for them outside, over the Autumn & Winter.

You could make a coldframe for them or get a little mini greenhouse (cheap at Wilkos & B&M at the moment) or shelter them outside somewhere not exposed, depending on where you live.

I'm sorry jean, my words should have been to you. Lungs is a great album, dig it out. I'll be looking to get her next album from what I have seen tonight.

Kasbian is now on- not a great fan but some of their tracks I do like.

Flo- if he likes Pink Floyd............he can be talked in to all sorts of stuff..

I love Kate Bush- for me Florence has similar appeal

Evening everyone, I'm all for long hand English I thought I knew what OH meant.......now I'm not sure

Watching Florence at the Reading Festival- that girl can sing,brilliant performer. 

I've had a few things in the past on the keyboard- somehow the quote button would be substituted with a question mark and vice versa. Always worth checking that the keyboard isn't put on to default US.

Buying spring bulbs online

Posted: 22/08/2012 at 22:21

I get some cheap ones from Wilkos & B&M if I want to get the show going. I also buy from a local nursery.  I'll probably buy a bag of cheap daff bulbs as well.

Lavender Lady- I 've looked at Sarah Ravens site a few times. Whilst I'm in no doubt that the quality is great, it  is very expensive

My lavender plantlets arrived at the end of May. I have been growing them on, I'll be planting them out next Spring

Keeping cosmos

Posted: 22/08/2012 at 21:49

Hello, I've just started collecting seeds to sow for next year. For me, collecting seeds from annuals are not  worth the effort, unless you  have the space and time  to grow them on/ or live in mild weather conditons. The seeds are really cheap. Ive been growing Cosmos Purity.,. did very badly in the lack of Summer.

Jean- there's loads of seeds to be collected in the garden. I still haven't cut my foxgloves off.

DIY Cold frame

Posted: 22/08/2012 at 21:12

Hello eveyone, I love my coldframes, they do so much. Most of  my plants have been grown in them. So economical to build.

Tessa- great freebie, I accquired  a smallish glass panel a while ago, it  was very heavy.

I guess that my coldframes look a bit like sturdy mini greenhouses.
