When do we remove the lid? Is it as soon as the seedlings start to appear?

I have a rather large clump of primrose but for some reason it hasn't flowered. Anyone have an idea why that may be?

Rats feeding on bird food! What to do?

Posted: 28/01/2015 at 15:26

We had a problem a few months ago  and the little blighters were even coming out to play in broad daylight!

I hung a plant saucer underneath the squirrel proof feeder using cable ties and that catches any dropped food. In addition to that I added an inverted long flower pot and small washing up bowl to the pole. This stops the rats from climbing up (not the squirrels though). Also bought some Rat Repel on line and sprinkled it under the sh


eds and we've not been  troubled since.

I haven't done anything yet but I think I might give word or publisher a bash as it would be easy to add photos and scanned in bits. 

I think it would be useful to have a place where I can see what I've done, where and when then document the results.

Does anyone here keep an online garden diary/journal or just an old fashioned manual one?

To cut back or not

Posted: 07/10/2014 at 17:16

I have a lot of plants  (plugs from GW 48 Perennials


)potted on and now in the green house to overwinter. The Achillea Cassis look really leggy. Do they die back naturally or should I cut them back or leave them alone? The catmint has gone a bit mad and the Geum are quite big too. Also do we continue to water the plants in the greenhouse other than just not letting them dry right out?
