Newbie needing help

Posted: 25/09/2012 at 20:25

Hello, looks like there's loads of potential there, agree with figrat  about the foxgloves, if you don't want them there, then I would be tempted to move then now to somewhere more suitable. I really don't like oxalis so I would get rid of those. The plants in the 7th picture on the right look very similar to forget me nots, I could be wrong though. I would be tempted to move those.

I'm not a veg grower so can't help anymore, but loads of useful stuff and loads of potential, good luck

Evening everyone- I love SCD, this year looks a lot better line up, less chance for it turn it in to a pantomine which is what I think was going on for the last 2 years. Will have a look at Fern's training. When the series starts proper, I'm an addict for it takes two on BBC 2 every night. I do prefer Claudia to Zoe though.

Tapioca- no way I'm ever going to eat that! or rice pudding but semalina with a jam

Recovering from a mixed weekend- my young female house, unneutered cat, went crazy on Sat- full blown nasty cat attack directed at me! Very very scary, it was something out of Hammer house of horrors! I've got the wounds and bruises  to prove it! Emergancy trip to the vet yesterday, now spaded and so far so good

On a positive note saw Dexys (mid night runners)  in Bristol and they were fantastic,nothing like going to see a band live

Hi everyone, have to say I didn't even think of using the report button last night but will do in the future as well as the ignore option

Thanks to everyone who has helped to sort it out

Have to say though I just don't get the whole spammer,wum or sock puppet thing. These people must lead very sad lonely lives.

hello everyone, I make no excuses- there's no way I can keep up with all the posts here

I'm a pleb too- something In my head thinks that this was a Marxism  theory but not sure.

I've just come on here and noticed there's a lot of rubbish/selling/spammy post on the forum tonight.

I'm going to ignore them and hope they go away

Sounds like it's working for you I have a couple of home made cold frames which are brilliant. I'm a seed grower,this year I started a lot of mine on my kitchen windowsills and then moved them into the coldframes to grow on. My winter was really mild so things did really well.

kate- sounds like my sort of place I'm not going to spend a fortune on grit that is just going into the ground no matter how much it's meant to do the garden good..

Yes Matt we are neighbours, at the moment my annuals are still doing very well, infact coming into their own. I'm hoping for another mild winter here, last year I had a couple of frosts (not hard) and that was it. Managed to grow lobelia from seed in Jan without a heated greenhouse, but you never know what will happen this year.

I love all spring bulbs Sarah, just want you need after the winter
