Thanks Pdoc. I have never managed to keep any, but keeping my fingers crossed. Spitting with rain here.

Lily lovely view, see what you mean about looking dead, but I'll keep my fingers crossed for that as well. Think it's still early days, have you had a scratch at it?

Hi Panda & lily & MrsGarden

Dove will the troubles( more than troubles ! ) affect your planned trip with DIL? Geography isn't my best subject and I can't remember which area you plan to visit.

self watered planters- for which plants

Posted: 04/03/2014 at 07:54

Hi Samal. I have Pelargoniums in self watering troughs that are outside through the Summer. I used them so that the weight of water in the bottom made them less likely to blow off the wall.

On the down side they can get waterlogged if we have heavy rain and you need to tip them to pour water from the base.

Must say I'm not a big fan, but they are useful for my purpose. I prefer to judge how much water to give by the weight of the plant pot.

They might be helpful to use for "thirsty" plants if you aren't there to water them. I have also know people grow greenhouse crops in them.

Good Morning. Hard frost and 2C here.

Spent a glorious day in the garden, weeding, pruning, tidying and have 3 125Ltr sacks of rubbish to take to re-cycling centre, stuff that wouldn't compost in daleks. It was dry enough to get one lawn cut. Then ate an early meal and conked. We didn't stop for any lunch so were starving, only thing I had the strength to make was ham and cheese omelettes, oven chips and salad, but it tasted great after actually doing something physical. 

Dove hope you & AP's have a lovely day.

Poddington  have fun in there.

Chicky hope chicklet feels better today.

Stacey, bet LO misses the toys

Gardeng, great bug box and station looking lovely.

Matt won't be long before you have your GH.

Everyone I've missed, hiya  

If the weather stays dry, today will be a repeat of yesterday but in Mum's garden. 

Have a good one everyone
