I use those plastic type green houses and get good results, just make sure it's secure. They have a tendancy to fly off.

Pallets

Hi Edd, the sides were a 6ft pallet cut cut in half and the rest of it is held together with screws. The plastic roof and sides are attached by nails not hammered in flush but bent over.

That's tough not being able to get on with what you want too Gardengirl, I hope your energy comes back to you. Have you started sowing seeds yet? I haven't yet, maybe towards the end of this month

Thanks, it's huge but I'm hoping it's going to full of plants this year  and is always good to have some extra space. Sorry to hear that you've not been well, you always sound so busy and full of energy. That's a job that can wait anyway.

Not sure what OH will do with, I did ask him but he just said burn them! He likes bonfires.  Hope you feel better soon

Will this plant survive ?

Gardengirl, have you managed any more progress on your shed?

 

Gardening on Our Own

I think so Simon, I love seeing the changes each year. I am addicted to growing from seed and cuttings, just love seeing things grow and of course free plants. I get a lot of satisfaction seeing insects on plants that I have grown specially for them.

I've been out and pottering a couple of days this week, it's great to be out of the house at long last

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

I'm managing to hang off the sowing Fairy but it's getting more difficult. Did some seed collecting which is close Night time temps here are still around 0

OH is constructing me new frame, it looks huge at the moment but I know I wont have any trouble filling it

Guess the plant

Looks like larsksur to me, but that's probably because I'm a little envious as I struggle to grow this one
