Great Way of Making Some Money Out of this Hobby?

Posted: 16/02/2015 at 10:23

I've sold surplus plants that I've grown from seed in a local market. Didn't make a lot but enough that would cover some Dahlia tubers

Should I plant conifers now (Mid Jan) or wait for it to warm up

I think newly planted roots will have a problem growing and developing in cold frosty soil. I would wait a bit til the ground warms up

Think 30s & 40s are termed "pre war"

"BTW, how old do you have to be, to be classed as antique?"

Only found this out recently but anything from 1950s -1970s can be loosely called "mid century"

I like Monty but again he was the presenter when I started gardening

Gardening is great and I'm sure you will have loads of fun. I like growing from seed or cuttings and grew some veggies last year for the first time.

I would definatley go for veg that you like. I had great success with runner beans last year and found them easy to grow and a great harvest. I'm still eating them now and it won't be that long before I can grow them again. I found beetroot easy too.

Best of luck and this a great place to learn stuff

Great a new seed swop

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 19/01/2015 at 10:47

No now gardening apart from looking out of the window and thinking of nice it will be in the Spring and Summer. Be nice to start sowing seeds now but I've learnt not to do it so early and my new place doesn't have any deep windowsills either
