Thankyou WW, it wil probably take me a good few weeks to get the blog how I like it and then it will be a next few weeks before I post my first thing on there, as I want to experiment with different writing styles to find out which one I prefer.

Also, I was hoping to advertise on here, I dont want to compete with GW and obviously know I'll never be that big, but might get some people reading it. And then theres Facebook and Twitter. I have already got a page called 'Keeping It Green' on both, so will probably call the blog the same

Need Bees This Year!

Posted: 31/03/2013 at 15:10

That is a real, shame, as I do love bees (and butterflies) and was really hoping for huge colonies to take to my newly planted garden. However, I suppose it gives me more time to get everything sorted before they start coming out and taking over then

At the moment, I have all the time in the world, I'm too ill to go to school and it doesn't look like I will be returning  

Would you be able to post a link to your blog, as I'd love to see what you've done

Which Delphinium seeds?

LeadFarmer, theres no harm in trying, I've sowed some foxglove seeds that were meant to be sown by 2005 last year (given to me by an old bloke I know) and some grew, some didn't, but it's worth having a go and much cheaper than buying them in shops

Thats amazing Frank! I'm rubbish at poetry, so here goes...

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

Gardening is my passion,

And I hope it's yours too!

Basic, but effective haha

Well I thought of doing:

Plant of the week - with sowing and growing instursctions

A Q&A section (obviuosly I will have to learn things off the net and then reply)

Jobs to do that week that suit the weather conditions (similar to GW, I know)

A new space saving idea weekly

Links to different plant offers...


Thats all I got so far. I've just turned 16, but have been gardening since I was 9/10, so have taught myself a lot of stuff  

And yes I have thought about it, however, I won't be able to apply for atleast the next month and a half, as I've got depression at the moment and Lyme Disease, so that why I've been on here a lot and sowing seeds

I was going to hand my aplllication form in and hope to either geta  job or and apprenticeship, I don't mind either way, but would like to earn some money to put towards my garden.

Hi everyone, I'm thinking of setting up my own gardening blog. I know there's plenty already, but I would like to start one off, as it will help myself to learn more about plants and I will be able to take examples of my blog into any interview I get to work in a garden centre.

Do other people think I would be able to do this? And does anypne have any ideas what I could put on it?

Thsnks Verdun and Rosa, I am going there now, only because it's around 10 minutes away from poundland and mum said she can do the weekends shopping in there Hope I find a bargain, wish me luck!

There are loads of people saying they've bought lots of plants cheaply at Morrisons. my nearest one is around 30minutes away and I was wondering whether it would be worth going for the plants and gardening stuff. Has anyone bought any plants from Morrisons recently? Do they have a good choice? Is it worth going? Sorry for the questions, but not sure whether to go or not
