Half hardy annuals

Bathroom, bedrooms, anywhere!! Best put some paper or cardboard down first though, you dont want a divorce over it.

Cosmos grow so quickly theres no rush to sow them, I sowed some in June for late flowers. They can go in as tomato plants are going out in the GH. Not yet though.

Narrow Border - Help please?

How about a compromise Paulie. Make one wider border at the bottom, could you afford some  1ft paving  slabs, not over the lot, but you could put some tubs/pots of nice things on those and in the gaps put climbers. The baby has to have room to play.

The plants you have there already are looking lovely, let them grow and spill over the lawn, they will soften the edges.

You do so well Marion, I have missed some of your thread but trying to catch up! 

Some lovely spring flowers out there. I love that red shrub above a brick wall, really bright.

My son is similar to yours, he wants a text every morning on update, daughter is very practical and seems to be coping well.


When to put plants outside?

Posted: 18/03/2015 at 15:51

Gro bag trays are good, I use those for that very same thing. Sometimes on offer in GC or can be bought from Amazon or ebay. Pricey to start with but last forever.

Or even..... no musnt get silly!!!

seedlings grew very tall!

When you pot them on, plunge them right down in the new pot, right up to the first leaves Even curling round. I have never used a propagator, they come up just as well if you wait for warmer weather, unless you are growing hothouse exotics,

I cant see any advantage in dragging plants up in Feb, you still cant plant out until May, and late March or April sowings will be the same size by May. But stronger plants. I know others wont agree, but it works for me.
