Seeds for next year.

Posted: 04/08/2012 at 08:45

I've been stocking up for next year as well, the vast majority of the seeds were discounted, either half price or less. Think my best bargain has got to be 25p a packet from The Works. I've started collecting seeds from the garden this year as well.

Hi Becks,

Enjoying the photos, it's great when you can see the changes happening. As others have said getting supplies in can be very expensive, much better to keep your eye out for bargains- free ones are the best.

I love pallets, they are so versatile and if you have access to a trailor for transporting them.........brilliant. My 50 ft + wooden fence is made up of them all entirely free! I treated them initially with the cheap Wilko stuff...... does the job. In time I might go for a deeper better quality stain. Love the creative idea re the bits of the bed. Always look in skips, you will be amazed at what you can find and adapt.

Some sweet peas growing up the post would look really good.

Have you seen one?????

No ladybirds, but lots of bees and at long last some butterflies.

To me gardening & the wildlife stuff go hand in hand.

Talkback: Swifts

Kate I know exactly what you mean about swifts, I love hearing them have a good old screech.

I hear them a lot so will do a count

My new project. Where do I start!
