If its an aluminium one you can buy plastic fittings for that, e bay are cheap., if its wooden, tack it on, I cover all of my greenhouse with the bubble wrap. Put it crossways starting from the top so that it overlaps and the damp will run behind the wrap. 

Too late to plant my bulbs?

I second that Nut, my daughter bought some daffs in a sale and planted them in Jan last year, they flowered the same time as the others. No probs.

Same as above, but when you plant, its good to pick out the middle growing tips, this will make them shoot out from the bottom or you will get one tall spindly plant. I planted a row of these in december 2011 , they were 2ft tall bare roots, very cheap, they are now 4ft tall and as wide.

They do make mistakes, trying to plough with the cows was the funniest!  They said to make the bowls out of hard wood such as beech, then chopped an oak log. Even so, i love the entertainment value of this and will be waiting to see how the fodder peas grow later in the season.

Nice to hear from you again. I seeded a few patches in the lawn, hopefully they will take, did you use autumn grass

 seeds. My OH thought it was a bit too late but lets hope.

Use off used compost

If you are going to re use the  compost, i would tip it all out and check it for vine weevils.

That is a bank planted under the farming scheme, the farmer just plonked them in on the stoney bank, they havent grown at all well but he got the grant money, they are assorted trees, hawthorn, hazels etc.

They have been completely covered with bramble, couch grass and nettles, I am hoping that now they are uncovered, I can feed them up a bit and hopefully grow a nice hedge up there.

I do have lots of shrubs and trees to go in the ground in front,  so will look good in a couple of years.

I want to grow again

I will grow pansy again, sweet peas,and mesumbryanthimums (scuse spelling), , also pixie lupins, they bloom from early summer right through to November. I have just pulled them out for a big tidy up but they were still blooming. I am trying to get mostly perenials in my garden to cut down on the seed planting, probably will do just as many, have just dug another huge border that will need filling. next year..

 This is going to be 5ft deep,
