I have bought the same offer from the Sunday Express Paper, not received the plants yet, think it said end of May beginning of June.

Plant ID please

It is Lily of the Valley, just looked at a plant in a pot in my garden this morning and it has now flowered and that is what it is.

Geum Eos Seeds

They did have them for sale on Ebay.  I did buy one 4 years ago from there but lost it.

Rubble pile into flower bed?

I have lived in my property for over 13 years and am still digging up glass from milk bottles, nails, woods and all sorts.  Think the last people must have buried things over the years.

Seed Suppliers

I buy most of my seeds from Ebay, you can get all sorts of flower and veg seeds, never had any problem with buying them on Ebay.  A lot cheaper.  I like different tomato plants and they have a wider range than the seed merchants and garden centres. 

Homemade bug sprays

I do not use chemicals from shops, just washing up liquid in spray bottle with water for greenfly and like others have wildlife in my garden, the rest takes care of itself, pick off anything that is big enough.

I bought 3 blueberries and 10 raspberry canes and got free 50 butterfly gladioli bulbs in February.  They always have offers.


Best April Fool Gags

When I was sixteen, a long time ago, my cousin knew I fancied the butchers apprentice so he sent me for an elephant steak for his dog.  What a fool, god rest him he always got me.

My rose

I have grown rose bushes from cuttings put in the ground with sharp sand at the base of the stems, looks like you have an easier way of rooting a rose, just pot it up in compost and see what happens.  My rose bush was very over grown and not very stable in the ground but I loved it and wanted to keep it so hence the cutting, ended up with six rose bushes out of eight so not bad for a beginner in rooting rose shoots.

Value branded compost V branded names

Posted: 06/03/2014 at 19:15

I buy B & Q own grow bags, never had a problem with it, use it for my seeds and tomato and cucumber plants.  I do my own compost which I spread on my borders and veg patch, gives them a good feed every year.  I have never bought the branded compost as B & Q just as good.
