water feature

Did you have any luck with your water feature? I am in the same position and was wondering if you had come up with a solution?

Water feature

Posted: 02/01/2013 at 23:02

I'm not sure where to put this thread so here goes. I would like a water feature in the garden and have two Belfast sinks. My local council has told me that I cant have a pond as its a health risk so I sold everything I had for mine last winter. I have now decided that I would like a feature in the garden. Is a Belfast sink too small? Will the water become stagnant? Should I used a solar panel pump thingy? I have no electric down in the garden but would love to have moving water in it. Any suggestions, advice and help will be gratefully received.

Hmmm, so maybe Im not that bad then lol  Thats reassuring Gardengirl. I go down to the greenhouse every day telling my seeds to get a wriggly on and grow. My other half just shakes his head at me 

Im getting better though. I used to poke them to see if they were doing anything lol. I learnt the hard way

You can also grow peppers, chillies, Cucumbers, Melons and figs in the greenhouse

(I read the thread wrong lol)

Yes. I did. Not last year but 2011. They were great. Had a brilliant harvest and really sweet with delicate skins.

Affected by Rain in the veggie patch?

I lost everything this year due to wireworm. I managed to get some carrots and spring onions but they were lifted well before the weather turned really bad up here. First time in 6 years I haven't had a proper harvest

Hey folks. I planted mine in September as I always do. They are sitting at about 12 inches and very happy. They dont need covered either as its the cold that splits the bulb so it produces cloves or you will just end up with a very large looking spring onion. Still tasty...just very very mild

That sounds really nice. I quite liked that 


My plants are subjected to this kind of stuff quite alot. They seem to like that better than AC/DC or Lynnard Skinnard
