It doesn't work on an iPhone Steven. You may not have the tool bar on your devise.its just across the top of where you are writing to us, next to the quote marks. 

Anyway, those roots, I just laid then on a tray of compost and lightly covered them they will soon start to shoot out.  When they have grown on you can plant them out, you could be sorry, it springs up everywhere.

Plant containers

The cheap plastic ones usually just come with the impression of a hole, you have to drill it out yourself. Be careful, I have split the bottom right out of them before.

Secret tricks of germination

Posted: 11/03/2016 at 11:04

Only sow them in small containers , who wants 200 of one variety, I sow in rice/ yogurt pots, that way you can grow 200 different types instead of 200 of one type. No secrets here, Bung them in the pots, taking care to note which seeds should be on top of compost and which need covering, stand back and wait.

i don't have a propergator.

There are no signs of my Black and Blue at the moment, so maybe lost it, but I have lots of cuttings from it.

The Hot Pink hasn't lost its leaves over winter so seems the most hardy, lots of cuttings from her also. 


Gabion walls for sound-proofing garden

Posted: 11/03/2016 at 10:54

You can't build a wall that high, but what I have found works quite well is a very high brow classical music cd with  the speaker facing their way.

I did this with some next door neighbours years ago, they played their music way to loud, so I put the speaker facing and almost touching the wall, they did turn there's down when they realised how sound travels, failing that, you can remember their conversations then discuss it with them , like , so, so and so's doing that now is he, or fancy her going to the hospital for that,  they won't like to think of you listening in on their conversations, and may tone it down a bit.

Google Earth have updated, the pictures of mine are from late last summer, the hydrangeas are in bloom and the pond is there.
