Talkback: How to grow salad leaves in a container

Ok so their is promotion for Birmingham at the start, but I don't need to see it every time I want to get some gardening advice.

Down here in Bath the garlic growers on my allotment all agree that we are about a month behind normal harvest timings and you should leave them in for another 4 weeks, especially if it stays dry and the risk of rot off is low.  

Overgrown back garden

1. Paint/ Creosote the fence

2. Scrap the lawn, rotovate the lot with as much organic material you can lay your hands on. 

3. Plan borders , lawn, bbq areas depending on which direction your garden faces.Circular lawn in the centre, borders, think about hight, climbers up the fence      

Best Base for Greenhouse?

Posted: 19/01/2013 at 15:56

I have a 2.2m x 4.4m green house and I would recommend pouring a single concrete base exactly the same size as your green house so you don't get a ledge whihc can let in damp through standing water, expecially important as you are going for wooden frame.It is a fair bit of work but it is easy enough to do, dig out at least 20cm and fill with hard core. Get your wooden frame set up to pour a base at least 15cm deep. Hire a cement mixer, get a couple of big strong mates round, and  mix and pour the concrete base.

Open soil nees replacing, you will get diseases, damp and fungal problems which are hard to eradicate. A concrete based GH is easy to keep clean and didiease free. Use big Square pots so you maximise space.


Good luck! 


Talkback: Monty Don returns to Gardeners' World

Monty is an enthusiastic amateur who has broad appeal, if you want definitive advice you ask a professional; Carol, Titchmarsh etc. Allotments are even more popular and a regular or more frequent slot perhaps following an allotment site through the season would be good. Jo and his allotment experience was fine showing how an allotment sceptic could be converted to the joys allotmentiering. Have a slot with an allotment veteran to take viewers through the season will I am sure prove very popular.
