Bad spelling! I can't even talk about it...

Advice for novice?

I agree with Frank. Wait til spring and see what you have. Then you can think what you want to keep or move etc.

If you want to grow veg next year I would suggest you get rid of the grass and any weeds, especially if they have flowers as they will self seed and you will have more work later. You could start planning what you will want to grow there next year, maybe there are some seeds you can start now.

Lucky with the greenhouse! I have a little plasticky thing which is OK for my tom's and overwintering stuff. But oh how I'd love a proper one!!

If you're particularly curious about a plant you could take a picture and ask in the garden center. Or look in the books, you are likely to stumble upon some of yours. Charity shops are good, but don't forget a library too!


Good luck! It will be great fun I'm sure

Thank you all for your replies. My friend has confirmed it is indeed, as suggested by Swisssue, a dipladenia. Now just to find space for it, or a good home

Thanks, i think it might be. I'll ask my friend and see if it rings a bell. She gave it to me in one of those teeny weeny pots, maybe that's why it's not looking so well.

 Hi all, I was given this by a friend who got two of these from her wedding florist as a present. She has forgotten what it is called but remembers florist saying it has pink flowers and it is originally from Japan.

Looks like a climber to me but really I haven't got a clue I did add a photo, hopefully you can see it.


Tomato Ripening

i've never attempted tomatoes myself, but my nan used to pick tomatoes when they were green and wrap them individually in newspaqper and then leave on the windowsil which wasn't even sunny. I have no idea what's the science behind this, but it worked.
