Garden news mag?

Posted: 17/03/2015 at 12:17

I subscribed to Garden News for two years, I have just stopped only because after two years the articles seem to repeat themselves. But don't let that put you off, I found it very easy to read in a bright lively format. So yes, go for Garden News. It works out cheaper if you can subscribe and you get free seeds!

We have Foehn (pronounced fern) effect going on here at the moment. It's when moist air from the west rushes up over the mountains and warm-up coming down the other side. It's 25C in the greenhouse. Spent the morning power washing the patio.

what are you excited about?

Hi all

I have bought too much seed compost, if the bag remains unopened and I store it in a dry warm place, will the nutrients in it last to next year?

Hi Kitty

You could use the clear prop lid turned upside down. As long as its water tight. I did that last year when I run out of drip trays.
