Bubble Wrap Greenhouse

Posted: Today at 15:10

I bubble wrap all of it, starting with the sides and then the roof, allowing for a slight lip over each piece to stop heat escaping.

Garden Design Course in GW Mag

Posted: Today at 08:48

I received my new issue of the Gardeners World Mag yesterday and inside it mentions a Garden Design course you can do from home with a money off code for readers.
I was just wondering what you all thought about it? Whether it seems worth doing or if you have even done the course yourself?

We've had a fair bit of rain over the past couple of weeks so I haven't been watering it. I shall keep an eye on them.

This year I bought the 'Dianthus Crimson Rim' from T&M (I have it as my display piccie) since getting it I haven't really had any issues and it has put on good growth in some tall planters sprawling all around with blooms  

However the plants have now started yellowing at the base, and I'm not sure what to do, I am tempted to cut back, what would you recommend?

I agree it sounds like Lacewings. I noticed a couple in my shed when I moved into our house but unfortunately they had died before we moved in.
Don't kill them!

I noticed today that my Crocus bulbs that I planted a few weeks ago have started growing too.

What are these?

I was going to say I've only ever seen black pollen beetles before.

I'm a bit bemused as to where they've come from as there were no signs of eggs or anything on them yesterday they just appeared today lol
Will have to keep an eye out
