Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: Today at 18:46

spent the day at A&E having damaged my knee by kneeling for 3 days making my raised beds in the polytunnel.

No gardening for at least 2 days.

A good intention goes wrong

8 x 6 is the most popular sized greenhouse so they're always available. Some folk "inherit" them with a new house and want rid of them. Some just no longer use them.  New is always lovely, but you might get yourself a bargain.

Fishy, here's a thought, if you can find a cheap second hand one , maybe Mrs F and Dad could get you other stuff, like heated propagators, tools , plant gift vouchers ?

New Pots in bags

I've grown them in 100l compost bags turned inside out ( the black inside attracts the sun and helps warm the contents) and have had lovely crops

look on Ebay, if you're prepared to dismantle one, you might bet something better than buying brand new. I bought an 8 x 12 for £150 a few years ago
