Secret tricks of germination

Posted: 11/03/2016 at 11:04

Only sow them in small containers , who wants 200 of one variety, I sow in rice/ yogurt pots, that way you can grow 200 different types instead of 200 of one type. No secrets here, Bung them in the pots, taking care to note which seeds should be on top of compost and which need covering, stand back and wait.

i don't have a propergator.

There are no signs of my Black and Blue at the moment, so maybe lost it, but I have lots of cuttings from it.

The Hot Pink hasn't lost its leaves over winter so seems the most hardy, lots of cuttings from her also. 


Gabion walls for sound-proofing garden

You can't build a wall that high, but what I have found works quite well is a very high brow classical music cd with  the speaker facing their way.

I did this with some next door neighbours years ago, they played their music way to loud, so I put the speaker facing and almost touching the wall, they did turn there's down when they realised how sound travels, failing that, you can remember their conversations then discuss it with them , like , so, so and so's doing that now is he, or fancy her going to the hospital for that,  they won't like to think of you listening in on their conversations, and may tone it down a bit.

Google Earth have updated, the pictures of mine are from late last summer, the hydrangeas are in bloom and the pond is there.

Italophile , is that caused by irregular watering, the split, I mean not cat face. They take in the water too quickly and split the skins?

We are still using one of the original iPad, 2010, the problem is though now, you can't get the youtube app, although you can watch you tube, and it doesn't have a camera. Apart from that, it's working well.
