Sourcing Extra Large Plant Pots

Posted: 16/12/2017 at 15:12

For something as large as 130l you could make them from pallet wood. Old pallets are often free for collection, with a membrane inside they'd last a good while.

Thanks pbff, we're hoping for at least one clear day so that we can get a view from the top of Pen y Fan. We've been up it in all weather and it's always been clagged in at the top.

Merry Christmas to all

 Not in a jam jar but this Amaryllis is giving some colour to the house.

Hope to see a few next week, we're off to the Brecons for Xmas. We do get the occasional sighting here in Kent and they're definitely spreading closer.

It's 'common' around here.

I would dispute that it's rare for cats to defecate on lawns. I've witnessed it a number of times. They may prefer to leave their ' messages' in bare soil but they don't mind using the grass either! We get regular deposits on our front lawn. 

Greenhouse Monitor

There may be such a thing for commercial greenhouse use. I can't see there being much need for the amateur gardener, generally the greenhouse is close enough to the house for you to see conditions first hand. Remote temperature sensors are numerous but one that encompasses all your requirements would probably come with a hefty price tag, if indeed it exists.

 Lovely wintry scenes on this afternoon walk, perishing cold out of the shelter of the trees though.
