What to sow in January

Posted: 03/01/2013 at 11:08

@nodlisab last christmas I had a propagator and started it going in January. As sotongeoff has already mentioned it is a bit of a problem as once the seedling were ready to be potted on I soon had a problem with lack of window sills.

I started with dahlias, lupins, delphiniums, gaura and euphorbias

I have a book on dreams I keep trying to conjure up the lottery numbers too

I have found someone who is selling rotted horse manure at 25p a bag, is it sad that I am excited by this?

Composting and wormery

Posted: 31/12/2012 at 12:12

I bought my worms from a fishing shop, it must be quite common because he offered them as soon as I walked in. The advantage of a wormery is that it is contained so you avoid the rat problem, mine is also on a path so I can still put stuff in on wet days.

New Gardener . . . New House . . . What would you plant?

I would go for lots of Lavenders and Rosemary, they will love your conditions, they smell great and will require limited maintenance.

If you want high impact colour and are prepared to put in a little work Dahlias would be wonderful.
