Cold frames

Posted: 31/03/2015 at 20:01

Yes you can can use them as coldframes. I use mine as a mini greenhouse and start my seeds off in them as well. When it gets warmer I'll open the flaps and move the bigger plants outside.

My two new frames were finished off today and I'm very pleased with them

Pallets

Gardengirl, your coldframe is very impressive, looks really professional with a lovely finish.

Very nice compost bin, Lead farmer

Been starting out once again, here's my new cold frame knocked up by my ever versatile and creative partner, with handy shelves Think there's a bit of pallet in there somewhere, made from old bit of woods and some plastic that had radiators in.

Could it be rust? I know that you can some rust resistant snap dragons so maybe they are prone to getting it. Not sure what can be done about it. I stopped growing my namesake because of it. I wouldn't have thought it would spread to house plants, I take it the plant is inside

I like the two tone purple and blue ones. I had some white once, they didn't do as well as the blues

Wooden planters, diy or worth the cost

I think most garden stuff is priced ridiculously high so I opt for home made everytime. My OH has made some  useful and free stuff from pallets over the year, slap some paint/stain to preserve them

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 30/03/2015 at 22:26

Finally yes I have. Started planting my new flower bed and got some fresh annual seeds to sow. Might even have a go at direct sowing this year. Had a very enjoyable time getting muddy in the drizzle

That's a really groovy tent greenhouse davids10, so handy that you can just pack it away. Where did you get it?

Finally got round to some gardening, I'm such a late starter this year. Picked up some cheap bare root lupin and delph and some tete to tete daffs which we going over.

I grew a whole garden from my DIY coldframes a few years ago. You can grow anything in them. Mine were a sort of mini greenhouse type of construction with lots of shelves not the low level traditional types
