Hi, if it helps my polyanthus have flowered better in the shade. Primroses might be different so take Dove's advice. Just thought I'd mention the polyanthus

hi, I bought a lime green dwarf conifer last week, I have noticed the top has started to droop. The rest still looks green and healthy. Is this just a settling phase? I have never seen this with my other dwarf conifers.

seedling fungus

Posted: 07/03/2014 at 17:40

hi, seedlings on a north facing window sill have developed a white fungus at the base. The prop lid has been off since germination. Is this damping off and can I cure it. I'm off to the GC tomorrow

I had a dabble in Feb. with snapdragons they are steading growing in a mini GH in the main GH. Last Sat and Sun saw us sow;

3 trays of French Marigolds
1 tray of Lobelia (Crystal Palace), Dianthus, swan river daisy, viola, pansy, bedding dahlia, all HHA in the house

We'll sow all the HA the end of March in unheated GH

I should have said, this is my idea for our village flower show in August, I like to plan ahead. I'm exhibiting under the category, 'Recycling' where you have to use a tin can and garden flowers

Create your own beer garden

A new definition to the term, 'Beer Garden'

Take two soup cans, remove the labels. Drill drainage holes in the bottom of one, and glue (metal glue) this on the top of the other one so the water drains through to the bottom can. Paint them both black (Metal Paint) Paint a golden harp in the middle of the top can, and plant white Alyssum in the opening in the top.

You should have a pint of Guinness. Make three or four of them and put them on your patio table with beer mats,
