I have just put my runner & dwarf beans in my mini greenhouse and am on standby in case I need to sow more.

Rocket is easy to grow and lovely in salads. I also love sugar snap peas - yum!

B&Q M.Purpose Compost Issues.

Posted: 04/05/2012 at 14:07

I have found both Homebase and B&Q seed sowing compost to be reasonably good, but homebase MP compost to be fairly poor, especially used in containers. Always get a greenish layer on top and have hit and miss results. I usually mix it with my sandy garden soil for perrenials in containers but might have to mix some in for bedding plants too.

I have just ordered a composter and shall endeavor to make as much of my own as I can. It's worth checking your local council for offers on compost bins. I did this on directgov and found my council (Suffolk Coastal) has special offers.

I too an am impatient gardener and sowed runner and dwarf beans in peat pots indoors on 18th April, not knowing how long they would take to germinate as this is first time. All germinated in under 2 weeks. Also have giant tomato plants in my tiny greenhouse taking up all the room... will know better next year. I guess being a good gardener is a lot about experience.

I have loads of these at the front of the house and they do really well. We have sandy soil which is perfect. I didn't soak them before planting.
