No to everyone who asks for donations ? Do you agree or disagree with this ?

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 12:47

I think maybe they wont donate  because these sort of set ups are sometimes 5 minute wonders.  My grandsons school did a similar project, after a while it was just overgrown with weeds.   People couldnt get in to water , pick or weed through the holidays and it was left to die.

I think these projects should be funded by the schools.

Cleaning plastic plant labels

I get people to save these for me, even though they are free, I still clean and re use.

Thats how mine is, the little bead of rubber strip can go in there, but I dont use it.  I still have lettuces in there from Chrismas, and overwintered lots of plants.

My primulas, i cut back to the ground when they have finished flowering for the winter/spring, they then grow back very quickly and I get a good bushy green plant that will flower through w

ith no tatty leaves or dead flowers. I do this mostly with the denticulata, they will then flower again.

will my new four tier plastic greenhouse work same as a glass one?

Dove, you have given me an idea! I cannot get those plastic greenhouses to stay put, even though they are tied, roped down weighted etc. The best thing for them is to lay them on their backs and use as a cold frame, zip uppermost, make some drainholes in plastic, brill.

Feeding the lawn

You could use one of the feeds especially for lawns, it will kill any weeds and moss you may have.


I prefer Westland, but its up to you. Now is a good time to do it.

You need to buy a couple of packets of both of these, the putty looking stuff kept the draught out, you can buy a roll of thin rubber strip if you want to,  i havent bothered with it though.

I use anything i have got, they dont seem to be fussy here. They are very tolerant, in different stuff every year.
