Propagators, is it worth it?

Posted: 06/03/2016 at 08:39

Beautiful pic davids10 No snow here and have finally got some gardening done. Just a clean up/tidy really. Still had a few lurkers that I hadn't planted in Autumn so I've found some space for them. Thinking of this has a clean up, prior to the main event, which will be seed sowing in a couple of weeks

There's a little alley way at the back of the houses, so I have engaged in a little guerilla gardening there too So good to be outside, feels like it's been a long Winter

Be very careful and gets some training would be my best advice. They are very dangerous. My partner does ground maintence and tree felling work. He was trained with a local authority years ago. I don't know much about them, but he swears that Sthil? are the best

I'm a hands off slowly slowly gardener. I'm really chuffed if things self seed and turn up in unexpected places.

Wow Busy LIzzie, that's looks amazing. My mum gave me a cutting but I couldn't get it grow. I've started getting back into houseplants

Hanging off sowing runners until a lot later this year. Bought some early sown plants last year, no good

Anyone else strapped for space?

Posted: 27/02/2016 at 09:46

Yes as much I don't like to admit it, there's not much to be gained by early sowing. OH is planning a tidy up today of the garden, he's got plans for a new improved coldframe system

Healthy looking plants there flowers, like your milk cartons. I have a few mini coldframes/mini greenhouses, it's amazing how many plants you can grow in them
