Swiss Sue-thanks for that it posed exactly the questions I am now asking myself mainly around the unpredictabily of the whole thing. I will keep my fingers crossed!

GGrandma-that is a shame you can't come, I have baked over 200 pieces of cake and if it rains and/or I don't get lots of people then we will have lots left over which I would be happy to share with fellow gardeners!

Thanks

Not sure really how to reply to all these lovely comments except for the first one but here goes:

Flobear-Yes, am baking like a dervish

Gardening grandma-Thanks, I am actually looking forward to it really

Nut cutlet-yes thanks, I had a quick tour today and seen some encourging signs of growth-in certain areas I am 'planting' some lovely photos eg of last year's summer wild meadow!

Lilylouise- as above-it is quite a rural area so not a lot of competition. Thanks for your encouragment and I will keep you posted.

Are you all seeing these replies or should I be doing it separately? if so how if there is a string of messages?

Help, any advice for a NGS virgin? Am mightily worried about this as many months ago I thought that it would be a great time to open my garden on 7th April which I now realise is very early-and apparently there is snow coming I have a later day in summer but any tips would be great

Hi, I was really suprised about the cherry tomatoes as I thought they needed lots of sun.  Did you grow them in a greenhouse?  I don't have one so they would have to be outside. Also I am in the North West

Thanks I will give them a go.  Have you just started them in a pot?

It is evening so if it is fine then we would probably be outside (or option of going outside) at least in early part of evening.  Also in a heated conservatory.  I like the idea of the nicotiana-I have tried to grow sylvestris but I think it is too cold here (NW lakedistrict).  I could do tubs I suppose but I think that the short , mixed colour ones I have seen in the garden centre are not scented.  .

Hi, I am having a big party at the end of June and hopefully we will be able to go outside or at least have some sort of gazebo thing outside.  I want to plant up some pots with flowers/bulbs that will give me scent at this time of year as well as look good.

Thanks

Growing soft fruit with limited space and light!

Any ideas?
