Welcome to the potting shed

 Hi Michael, nice to see a new face,we, like Dove built our wildlife pond last summer and by Spring it was teeming with little creatures , even our first frog spawn.

We bought the liner, with a 30 year gusrantee from Bradshaws, you can get it through Amazon, but its cheaper direct.

They can supply everything you need, most of my plants were through the seed swap thread on here, so it doesnt worknout that expensive.

We did buy a pre formed one first but it nearljy caused divorce! Dont go there!!

Hardest bit is the digging, we had to move a tree because of the roots, nothings straight forward in gardening.

Hi Cornish Clare, I don't seem able to message you - I just get a blank screen.  Am I doing something wrong?

Lena, what devise are using, I couldn't get PM,s on my galaxy tablet, I had  to load  Chrome.

Jo, Had a blond moment and sent you Cerinthe seeds, but will now send Borage and Aconitum together.

I have a hardy fuchsia that has flowered still at Christmas, it's only just coming into bloom now.

Margarettes  are good here now but rabbits eat the Coreopsis.

Sedums hardly out, lots of different  Salvias still good.

gran, did you get the yellow crocosmia seeds going, mine are still in bloom now.

How much....

The thought of Hillman Imp has brought back tragic memories for me, in an accident, the petrol tank at the front explodes, will say no more.

i had a Mini Traveller, I used to put the back seats down flat, sit the baby in his pushchair then put the brake on, no seat belts or car seats in those days, that car went on and on, we did some miles in that.
