Shady space question

Posted: 19/01/2014 at 22:03

Tracey, I grew loads of fruit and veg in pots in 2011. I had lettuce and peas in guttering, sweet corn, beetroot, strawbs, raspberries, carrots, celeriac, herbs, beans, radish and rhubarb. Oh, and blackcurrants. Harvests were amazing! Although, I did get a bit bored of it, hence loving flowers now!

Haha Tracey  How have you done so far? Mum made us a quorn spag Bol, as I suggested it the other night and it tasted like soil! Won't be having that again!

I would say so as a general rule Blubell 

I may have just purchased 300 snowdrops in the free for £21.50! Accidently, obviously

What are you saying about slimming world tracey?!  My mums also called Tracy, but she's without the 'e'. She's been a slimming world consultant for 20 years, glad she's not on here haha

Greenhouse renovation?

Posted: 19/01/2014 at 21:17

Agree with edd, hate carrier bags, find bits everywhere all the time! 

Landgirl, thats a truly amazing greenhouse, what I'd give to have that! All I've got is an 8x6 bought for £50 a couple of years ago, apparently it was about 20 years old when I purchased it, and is missing the railing to keep the door in place and a pane of glass on the door too, can't afford anything decent. Please do keep it 

Thanks everyone

I'm guessing the answers no to that one nut 

Im with you though Tracey, everyone's so lovely on here and are happy to help with anything. I joined around last year and have been on and off, but nothing changes, it's still the same down to earth people on here 

Am I a sillee billee?

Am I a sillee billee?

ME! Every time I go out i come back with Atleast one more plant, they all get stacked up in my courtyard and have to wait weeks before being taken to my other garden (nans). I had to drill some shelving onto my walls  outside it got so bad. Can't help it though. My mum always complains, so I always come back with 'most people on my age spend there money on alcohol, drugs, or fags, think yourself lucky' and it always seems to work 

No compost reviews at B&Q

Posted: 18/01/2014 at 21:07

I always buy verve, £5.98 for 125 litres, and I ask me nanny to come with on Wednesdays so I get an extra 10% off! It's not brilliant, but you wouldn't expect it to be. Haven't had any plant deaths or anything, but I did find a nail, which I wasn't very happy about. Think B&Q must have had a lot of complaints, there was no disputing, they gave me a £20.00 voucher, which I spent on more compost! Obviously itd have been a different story if I had kids or my dog in the garden, but this all happened down my nans.
