Watch out for cabbage white caterpillars, mine got shredded last year, although i did squish them and have some nice healthy plants for spring this year, will make a nice flowery show.

Sowing Poppy Seeds

I always sow poppy seeds in trays, pot on then plant out, they do just fine.

Treat them a

s any other annual seed.

Am I correct in thinking that every photo that is posted on a site, automatically goes onto the open internet, or is it just this site?  I suppose that is why  we are told not to post pictures of our children on any site.

If you 'right' click on photo's and click google search, you can see all posters photo's there.

Does it really matter though, unless they are making big money at our expense?

I have just had order delivered from Scotplants direct, ( not the first time I have used them)

I bought escallonia plants in 4" pots about 14" tall very compact and bushy all in leaf, £2.45 each, (Could have got 10 for 18.50)

50 very thick 7' canes for 13.45 and 50 x 4" flower pots for 2.45.

they do charge 7.99 for postage but if you do a large enough order, or get together with friends, I think it is still good value and the quality of items is superb.

I bought  several laurel plants in winter 2012, they have romped away, all very good.

A lot of companies are tied up with each other, I ordered a tray of primrose plugs from Parkers, they came direct to me from jersey plants.

Hi, folks

Welcome to ‘Camera Corner’.

I know we already have our ‘Garden Gallery 2013’ thread and it’s great for sharing pictures of our gardens.

However, I (and others) feel there is room for a thread where we may share other stuff, so with this in mind I’m starting this one that will hopefully be more photography orientated.

Perhaps we could post pics of gardens & places we have visited, wildlife, macro (close-ups), sunrises & sunsets, patterns, landscapes……the list is endless.

I’ll start things off with this pic I took earlier in the year of my local bluebell wood:


David! I have just seen your photo for sale on the internet (Lots of money in photography)

Anyone have a garden blackbird?

Posted: 28/02/2014 at 10:17

For years we had a blackbird with white feathers on one wing, sadly he's gone now, but still left his offspring.

When they come to mate, they will probably fight for Mrs and one boy will get chased off.

What to put in cleared terrace border?

Some of the blue geraniums would be nice, slug free and take to most positions and soil types. A nice blue carpet that will flower for months. You could put some bulbs in as well.
