I think there is a bit of a problem at the moment WW, they are probably updating site, normally you can just click on your name by the login box then click on my posts, I am getting oops! at the moment, but it will be righted soon I should think.

This is what happens when.....

I took the advise of some young gardener in AG mag to set tomato seeds in January, my dad there sniggering away, 'Thats the way to do it these days dad' I says!

'Go on then' Says he.

Well, now my plants are 9/10" tall, no way they can go into the unheated greenhouse, and thinking never in the garden.

i will probably have to pot them on yet again, and so have to house 10 x 6" flower pots in the conservatory.

I have learned my lesson, listen to the oldies, they know best, dad has been gardening in this garden for 26 years, who was I to think I knew best.

OK Geoff, you win on this one!

Me too, wait till you see some shoots, they may have died over this cold winter, even the ones they say are hardy, are not always, I couldnt leave my annabelle outside.

Have you checked the roots for vine weevil.

No! I love the snow, deeper the better, coats, hats scarf, mits, love it!

the weather

You must have had some good weather in the past 14 years!

you can garden in all but pouring rain or when the ground is frozen.

We have about 4/5 weather threads on the go, perhaps you could pick up some tips from there.

I would give anything at the moment to go for a walk in the snow, we had just a bit in Jan, then none at all.



experiences with free offers of plants

Posted: 25/03/2013 at 14:30

But they are not free, by a long chalk, I saw 2 clematis plugs free +  -P&P £5.60. thats 2.80 each.

I bought 3 for 1.99 from Parkers last spring, only plugs last year, but good plants this year and will go out when weather is better.
