Mail Order - Perennials

I have bought plants form that sectret gardening site. marion recomended them, you don't have to pay the yearly subscriptions there are offers on there anyway.

but they were good sized plants, very well rooted though, but with a bit of teasing out should be fine.

the problem with growing perennials from seed is that you won't get big enough plants this year so you have to nurture them, protect them etc until next Spring then you will get flowers next summer.

some people like the the instant  garden, if so you have to buy them in big pots about now.

Plants and gardening ideas needed urgently

I am not certain but I think maybe Lou got that picture from Pinterest by her wording.

if  it is her garden its beautiful and those plants go so well together, and I wish Gardenlover would stop peddling his wares.

I do know my pop groups Hosta, I was trying to get the Reply back on track, I don't know what newbees make of us, they look in for their answers and see a plate of food or an inuendo

I like wood to be wood coloured, dark is nice but not painted, just wood stain.

i have bought some from Hayloft, not bad at all, all my original Penstemons came from there, I dare not mention J.Parkers, people will come down on me like a ton of bricks, but when I started my huge garden I couldn't afford anything else. So Hayloft and Parkers special offers were all I bought.

Chuff, chuff, chuffed!

How do I ensure an even germination of early seeds. They are in pots in a sunny windowsill but some seedlings are big enough to prick out and others are too small to handle

 

Sue, I would start a new thread on seed sowing, it will be noticed more that this one. They've gone silly now, 

A Gardener's Hands

I use those vinyl gloves as well, my son gives them to me he has them for handling gunpowder. They do get a bit sweaty inside but they're not on for long, only for delicate jobs then thin cotton for other things.

i like a nice hand cream that disappears ,have a few that work and I can knit all year round.

The blade on the Bosch we have can be turned over and used on the other side but it's made of something that can't be sharpened saying that, we are only just on our second blade and we have a very big shrubby garden, so it gets quite a bit of use.

 

with regards to your greenhouse, can you just get new panes of glass cut and get some clips from Amazon for now it would be cheaper.
