Mini Greenhouse/Growhouse

I use these and hand made similar versions. Yes you can start off seeds in them. I use a propagator lid to give the seeds some extra warmth, once up I take the lid off.


The main thing with them is make sure they are secured firmly. Many people have lost theirs in high winds. When it's warm make sure you open the flaps to give the plants plenty of ventilation.

Weeding My Boarders

Posted: 14/05/2016 at 09:16

I've not got so many weeds in my beds at the moment, I packed them full of plants last year so there hasn't been much light on the soil. For any that do get through, I use a long handled hoe to knock the tops off.


At the moment my hot bed is jammed with honesty, sweet rocket,sweet williams and bugle. Some will have to come out  once they have had their time but they have done a great job on surpressing weeds

Fab pictures Hefty, so cheerful I bet your planting gets loads of admirers. I've done a little guerilla gardening in the past too. There's a mainly unused weedy alley at the back here so everynow and again a few tough stragglers get planted there

Ponds with rock edging and pebbles

Your pond looks great Lucid. I think the main thing to consider is to make sure there's an easy exit for things like hedgehogs if they stop by for a drink.

If I'm feeling particulary lazy on the day I find them, I just chuck up in a pot and cover with soil to deal with later.


I've just discovered blood fish and bone so everything gets a sprinkle of this

Should I did up or leave ?
