Potting shed burglary

Posted: 30/03/2012 at 20:47

Hi Lucy, I'm so sorry to hear of whats happened, I can only imagine how upset you feel. As for why people do it? I don't know. The only think I would suggest is keeping the shed locked up in the future, not much good after it's happened I know.

My young rabbit whom I loved was stolen out of his home last year and I was heart broken, so I can relate you to you,

Don't let them get you down.  M x

I would use it, but I don't grow Veg or Fruit. Can't see that it would cause any problems

I inherited 2 Hydrangeas, both of mine are sprouting lots of new growth,but no flower buds yet. Mine are in a very sunny position,maybe yours would benefit from a feed?

Hello Botticelli,

Thanks for the useful information, I've sown my sweet rocket seeds today in seed trays under a lid & will pot them on gradually.I don't really plant a lot out straight into the garden as I know like you I might (probably) forget where they are.

Am I right in thinking that when the sweet rocket is established I should plant them out into  their permanent positions in Autumn?

I love the fact that when I'm gardening,I forget about everything else that's going on in my life and just focus on what I'm doing
