Leaving my garden

Posted: 04/02/2014 at 22:20

Hi lily, I love it here There's lots of things to be getting on with but I have a feeling up here it starts a bit later than what I'm used to. I'm so looking forward to being outside in the quiet.

Leaving my garden

Thanks for all your kind wishes and thoughts There's a couple of small flowerbeds in with plants from my old garden and the space is bigger than I thought so have some more room to play with which is great.

Overall the plants that were dug up and transported seem to be doing well, there's a few things that still need to go in but although I'm on a hill, it's so wet and  it's very stony. Managed to accquire a separate space as well which will let me grow some veg. Be good if the rain stopped now

How lovely, they look beautiful.

Damping off

I like to water the seed trays from the bottom, until you can see the top of the compost change colour, I generally sow on top of this, cover with compost and gently pat down. The compost doesn't seem to get so wet this way and seems a bit more controllable

Great news about your allotment zoomer and what a find the polytunnel frame is!

 

Primroses changing colour?

Posted: 04/02/2014 at 21:06

I like primroses, especially the pale lemon ones, they can cross pollinate into some lovely colours

I sort of know what you mean Dove, isn't there something that you can tell a geranium and possible a foxglove by the tint in their leaves?

That's very exciting Jim, birds of prey are so beautiful

What are people sowing right now?

Posted: 04/02/2014 at 20:53

Not sowing anything right now, although I'm started to get itchy fingers. Maybe in the next couple weeks I'll have a go at starting some flowers, indoors in a propagator and then move out to the cold frame.
