Have you got yours yet?

Not sure what you mean about a cut of nine million pounds? Is that the reported figure of how much these leaflets cost? All the junk mail that comes through my door goes in the compost heap.


A new career.

I think a job in doing some sort of conservation work would have suited me. These days I'm happy to do as little employment as I can. I have a small business and I love making my own cash. I feel I'm very fortunate that in the main my time is my own. I'm in my early part time retirement

That's nice, used to have them in one garden. Lovely things

Can you have too many different plants?

Posted: 05/04/2016 at 17:54

I often have too many of one particular type and not the place to put them. They usually find a home in the end though

Looking good sparkles. I think those ones on the bottom might struggle with light levels. You could rotate the trays but it won't be the same as being in natural daylight.

I dont' grow what you are but it might be worth starting to harden them off. You've got the mini greenhouse and there's a bare table right next to it   Just make sure where ever the green house is it's really secure.

If only I could get paid for doing what I love!

How Many Have You Got?

  nut and Dove. The thing is with pots, at the start you need loads of little ones but that changes as things grow. I  seem to run out of a particular size. I've also got a bit of preference for black pots rather than the orangey ones. I just think the plants look better in them I will use the other ones, just look for a suitable black one first

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

They look great Jimmy. No gardening  for me other than to pop out to  check progress and the temp in my seed house. My partner bought me one of those huge Wilkos thermometers, I love it!
