As Dave says the flowering season for them is only just starting I have Azaleas and Rhododendrons in containers, give them a specialised liquid feed and water using rain water, make sure you water them well in the summer months too.
One of mine came into flower this week and I'm looking forward to the others following.

lol there seems to be a division on the whiteness of it, I have to agree with Panda though I rather like it.

Debs it's cracked on the underside which is why it was originally in the skip, but I wouldn't want to sell it on anyway. I can't use it in the house as my house either as it is rented.

Also I can't sink it in the garden as there's nowhere that would be possible.

I'm excited to use it as a planter though, I just can't make my mind up yet on what to do! lol Thanks for all the replies, food for thought  

any ideas hanging basket liners?

Exactly. I tend to use baskets where you can't see the liners though, but that's just my preference

I admit I already have herbs planted in pots, and I rarely use them, so herbs aren't high on my agenda.
I have quite a few Alpines also in pots on a little stand too, Dove I have been tempted to increasing my Sempervivum collection, I only have 2 at the moment lol

Great ideas so far  

any ideas hanging basket liners?

I just re-use reversed compost bags with drainage holes poked through.

I have just been given this Belfast sink, it was in a skip ready to be chucked out but luckily I managed to save it! Each side measures about 14 x 18 inches with a depth of 8 inches.
If it was yours what would you plant in it?
Of course I have thought of the usual Alpines & Herbs, but I was just wondering if any of you had some other ideas? I'm going to have a little think before I get too excited and rush things lol

First Year Rhubarb

Posted: 18/04/2015 at 11:10

Good Morning!
I planted some Rhubarb last year that my Grandad's friend had grown from seed.
It has put on some good healthy growth in the past few weeks.
I have read that you shouldn't harvest first year Rhubarb from a young plant, so should I just leave it?
