In Or Out Of The EU Garden?

Posted: 06/03/2016 at 11:35

Sounds like my daughter, Frank, she gives me a plant when it's way past it and wants me to resurrect it. 

My son in law just says, don't worry mum, every generation has their problems, always has, always will.

Put a different plant there, one without berries, difficult to stop birds doing what they do.

Gardening on Our Own

I am just the same as Holly, lots of seeds and cuttings going on, love it out there on my own, we are miles from anywhere so completely peaceful. Days in the greenhouse are especially nice.

It still is, it must be good, there's about six threads opened on it in the past few days.

Why not just change your sleep pattern, who says you have to sleep from 12 to 8am? 

My sleep time is from 4am?

if you want to sleep longer in the morning and can't do that through the night, then do so. Don't lay in bed getting annoyed because you can't sleep, get up, make tea and toast, take a blanket, sit on settee, watch a film, read a book, then sleep until you wake up, whatever time that is. There's something to be said for eat when you're hungry and sleep when your tired. Be a free spirit, do what suits you. 

Failing that go down to the supermarket and buy a packet of Nightol

Can you do a 'quote' runny?

Propagators, is it worth it?

Posted: 05/03/2016 at 22:56

You wouldnt put pricked out plants back in the propagator, there in is the problem. You can put your seeds in there, they will germinate quickly, then comes the problem of where you will put them, its ok if you have lots of warmish places to keep them. You still can't plant them out until probably early June living in north Scotland.

the other downside is if you want to grow lots, how much can you get in there, I would need one about the size of my carpet.

I have tomatoes and peppers here, sown a few weeks ago, no propagator, they are all pricked out and growing well. 

I suppose if you want to grow some exotics it would be handy but for everyday plants that I grow, veg and flowers, I don't need one.

I bought some bare roots a few years ago from Hayloft, in the Autumn, potted up and kept in the greenhouse until they had plenty of growth on them, planted out following summer. Good mulch in the Autumn.
