Welcome to the potting shed

Posted: 05/07/2012 at 10:26

i had 600 small plugs from Mr Fothergill, petunia, verbena, lobelia, antirrhinum and i only lost about half a dozen. they were planted into cell trays and kept in the greenhouse (no heating but bubble wrapped) until they were big enough to put out in pots and baskets and some in the garden, considering how wet its been they aren't doing too bad but i am hoping we might get some better weather soon

i keep mine in a plastic box with some of those little desiccant packets that come in packages with electrical  goods, cameras etc in the bottom of the fridge

Coverage of Hampton Court Flower Show

Posted: 04/07/2012 at 09:31

I tuned in to Hampton Court Palace flower show and got such a shock to find it was all about flowers and gardens. Ayls is an author and has articles in a wide range of magazines she may not be to everybody's taste but her points of view are as valid as anyone else's, i agree with the gentleman about lawns i prefer not to waste my time with one,and i expect if you added up how much you would have spent in labour and have spent on materials for your own garden you might be surprised
