The best multi purpose compost this year

Nodlisab, I have had a similar experience with seeds.  I'm a novice with seeds and was putting my poor results down to my lack of knowledge/experience, but maybe the B&Q compost I'm using is part of the reason.  I agree with you it is poor, and it dries out so quickly.

Well I improved my map skill this morning, TT, by learning how to change the balloon - the new found knowledge has gone to my head !   Best leave this alone now and get on with what I'm supposed to be doing.

Morning GG, you need to be registered on Google and signed in to edit the map.  I could put you on if you like.

Thanks Ann & Adam for your posts - always helpful to hear other people's experiences. Thanks 

What's the weather like in your area?

Rain this morning which (for a change) wasn't forecast, dried up by lunchtime and some sunshine this afternoon, but still too bloomin' cold for May.  I am beginning to wonder if I will even get to plant out  this year.   We've had a couple of warmer days but by no means settled yet.

Thanks for your post, Andy,  Very helpful.  I was thinking of getting same size GH as yours and it sounds as though it will be more than adequate, judging by what you use yours for.  

do you do a "Chelsea chop ? if so what plants !

I'm leaving mine as they are.  Chopped them last year and the flower heads were smaller.  Lots of them but smaller.  I prefer them left to there own devices.  I just divide them every couple of years so they dont fall over.

I had wondered whether doorway threshold may vary, will definitely include this in my planning.  I know how annoying this can be with UPVC doors.  One of the reasons I don't like them.  Toughened safety glass is also a must have.

My OH is not at all practical so a shed just won't be at all tempting.  Will have to get him doing some useful digging in order to earn a rest on my greenhouse seat.
