Grade II Barn backing onto neighbours garden

it might also be worth checking if the barn is listed..... i don't know a lot about planning etc but there may be something to say you cant move the down pipe, if thats the case there isn't anyway they can be upset.... although I suspect that if it's just guttering then you will be ok to move it, is there any wayyou can move it onto your property and harvert the water for your garden?

Thanks Lilylouise & bunnysgarden, I'll give it a go I'm expecting the much belovveds assistance putting up the greenhouse in the next couple of weeks... maybe just a tad excited! ........ well actually, I can't wait!

I'm also in the northwest, (Lancs) I've had limited success with herbs, up until this year I've never had a greenhouse, technically I still don't..... it's still waiting to go up! I've tried growing on window sills all round the house and also waiting until later in the year and and just sowing straight out.

Tarrogon went well, as did Corriander, chives and parsley.

Thyme, Rosemary and sage where bought as small pot plants and went into large containers... doing well thanks!

However Basil not so clever! although it might have been a bit too soggy this year...

Borage did well and the camomile is quite happy, and I swear by lavender wherever you are, it's such a roughty toughty!

I do plan to use the greenhouse this year though. I've found the temp and conditions in our house aren't great for garden plants,

Good luck and let us know what you decide.

I spotted some seeds on the Internet for sale of a couple of plants I'd quite like to grow in my garden, nothing controversial just some bell flowers, however on closer inspection the seeds would be posted from Hong Kong.....

Does anyone know if it is leagle to import these seeds for my own use?

Any advise?

Thanks Santas litle helper!  I might have nipped off the pod too early, it had started opening but hadn't fully opened..... but I'll give it a go.

It sounds like from what you've all discribed I've got the conditions licked in the conservatry..... it's really cold (in comparison to the rest of the house, I water once a week on a Saturday morning as I'm cleaning up and it does get a bit of condenstion in there when we are cooking, the kitchen leads straight on to it with no door so there's always a bit of steam build up!

Burghill ~ the pod has started splitting which is why I noticed it so fingers crossed.... and like I said earlier, anything from cutting or seed from an existing plant is a bonus for me because they are free!

See I knew you guys wouldn't let me down! Thanks

I don't think I can take any of the credit for the seed pod to be fair, house plants a bit hit and miss here! I'll let you know how we get on, my theory with collected seeds is nothing ventured nothing gained.... it's not like I've paid for the seeds so anything I get out of it is a bonus and if it doesn't work I've only lost a couple of minutes out of my life when potting up!!
