The challenges of a smaller than average garden

thanks for the reminder, watched beechgrove a couple of weeks ago, and liked it, so will return to it.

We've got lots of seeds, it's just a matter of improving and breaking down the soil, it's still compacted and unsuitable to sow in. Another week or two, but I'm very very aware time is marching on!

I must admit I didn't know it was such a slow provider. If it does take so long, then I don't mind prioritising something else that will give results a little sooner, as the aim is to get as much in now as we can, so we don't feel we've wasted too much time this year.

I just think it's nice everyone who's a regular, without a personal vendetta against certain aspects of GW.. ahem... respects each other, which I think it really important and the main reason I now I have a stab at helping some people's questions. I wouldn't have dared to do that to begin with. I've grown in both confidence and imagination in regards to my gardening thanks to y'all!

I've been unable to source any seeds in GCs, but if I ordered some seeds online am I too late? The info I've seen seems to suggest so. I thought I might be able to find some plants at my local blooms but I have been totally unsuccessful, which is a shame because I'd have loved to have put some in at the allotment this month.

Another one for next years list methinks!

The freegle one Rose? The Worcester one is fairly inactive, the freecycle one however is usually quite good, it's just getting to a post before it goes! It's given us so far two pallets for the lottie, and umpteen pots for potting on seedlings. Not too bad!

This is the first thread I've correctly problem solved, so thank you Pops3! Hopefully it doesn't cause you too much concern, I'm quite fond of cuckoo spit, it means summer is coming to me!

If you're brave if you move away the bubbles with your finger you can see the tiny little froghopper, I think they're quite sweet as bugs go!

Something I know!!

It sounds like Cuckoo spit, it's just a little green bug that excretes the bubbly substance, as far as I know it's nothing much to worry about, I've got it all over a hedge, and so long as you don't sit under it, it's no problem at all, the rain usually washes it off.

Have a quick google for more info
