I am pleased to report I have an embryo tomato-we will need sunshine soon or it will be another bad year for greenhouse crops

The £10 was in my hand one minute-now it has gone

My badge has not arrived-is that the jet stream again?

You may now water to your heart's content and fill the swimming pool

Slugs ,slugs slugs it is always slugs--or snails- especially in wet conditions-use pellets or whatever means to deter them-it is a war out there

how to cultivate moss where there is grass

Posted: 13/06/2012 at 14:22

If you want to grow moss and wildflowers you are going to have to reverse what most gardeners want and that is create poor soil-it has been known for some to remove top soil to achieve these conditions.

It is a lot of work but I know some posters on here have created a wildflower patch-hopefully one will pick this up and relate their experiences.

Kate-you made it back from the jungle- were there any wild animals out there?

The mimulus are mixed colours-it was like a jumble sale with all the old biddys fighting over the bargains

Am off soon to cut the oldies grass

Biennials to be precise-usually things like wallflowers, foxgloves, sweet williams you sow now and they flower in around 12 months-you do not have too keep them in the greenhouse in fact it is best they are grown outside- then if you have nice sturdy plants they can be planted out in the autumn

Actually I went to Homebase first they had loads of reduced plants some of the tomatoes were about a foot high all leggy for 50p -not really worth much-the trouble is they have bought these plants in and the weather has put a damper on it-I have now got 22/24 mimulus plants -not sure they are all going to make -they are on life support and the next 48 hours will be crucial
