If you have to have your hair cut, I couldn't imagine a better place to have it done.

Seedlings and propagation

I don't put the radiators on just for seeds! They all germinate in their own time, no fuss gardening here

i have always used one of these, you can make though sands of pots and loads will sit in a seed tray, no root disturbance when you pot on or plants out.

Some seeds last for years, my Roma tomatoes dated 1995 all germinated.

Divide your trays into four Aym or sow in smaller pots.

That's funny you should say that, because I was going to offer you some of those plants!

Cooked veg water was my dads treat, I used to eat the cabbage raw, but mum would always say...don't eat that, it will give you worms. I never understood how that could happen, and I think maybe she said it because times were hard and she couldn't spare it.

What is your weather like?

We're in for another good one Hosta.

Everything goes on the heap, it all rots down, mixes in, I do agree that Avacado stones don't rot down that quickly though,.

I don't put tomato seeds on there, fed up with loads of little plants springing up over the garden, but apart from that, anything you've got. There is absolutely zero waste in this house, all paper,  card, junk mail goes in, but I am finding now there's a lot of paper with plastic coating on the outside, I have sat and peeled it all off but bit time consuming this time of the year.

Thank you for the reminder Richard.

Uploading images from ipad

Thanks Daniel, but I didn't think there was ever a problem with uploading from the iPad, I know it doesn't work from an iPhone, but lots of people use iPads.

J Parkers let down

I don't think Parkers do try to specialise in everything, I bought a tray of primroses from then once and they came direct from Jersey Plants. 

I wonder if they don't just buy in trees and plants from other specialist growers.
