Website problems?

..I've found it almost unusable at times.... if you want to view photos you have to get in quick, during it's better moments...

granite chippings how to use?

..oh that look's ok..

..does it have to be wood? Are you interested in metal sheds at all?   I have one of those, they're not cheap, but I don't have to worry about maintenance.   It's huge, I keep all my wheelie bins in it, not mention it's use as a 'great escape' should the need arise...

no windows though, I don't think you can have these in metal sheds... but if I cannot see out, then no one else can see in...

...oh, of course I have the door open - for air...

New climbers

my advice would be to not unwind them at this stage, you can remove those little sticks later on...  It'll take off soon enough just as it is...  presumably you have suitable support for it to grow upon, it is quite vigorous...

granite chippings how to use?

granite chippings sounds to me as though they may be a little large for the purpose, I'm not sure of their size - which does matter I think in this case... 

I use horticultural grit which seems to work very well.   I buy small bags of it from the 'pound' shop, or is it 'QD' I can never remember

my tomato seedlings are doing very well covered with this..

of course the garden centres have more choice and larger bags which may be more economical,  and we should be supporting them.... plus you also need a person with muscles to lift them....

..impossible to be sure Lizzie without seeing a photo and even then it could be difficult.  Perhaps you could get back to us in August with a nice picture if you haven't found out by then...  unless your neighbour is the type of person to seek out more unusual types, then it may well be one of those you mention which are more readily available. 

I used to grow this one in my last garden, but you don't see it everywhere..

..pitch forks and barbecues are not to my taste, but plants, and a good selection including the more unusual certainly are... I'll pay the price... a cafe is a bonus... but again it needs to look inviting... if I see a scone that looks stale, I shall walk out the door..

..refreshing and very nice to see when people make the effort like this.  I especially like all the pots of bulbs as seen ''from the kitchen door''...

perhaps we could all move in to that house in Harrow, on page 6
