What Type of Garden is Yours.

Posted: 20/03/2013 at 14:57

My garden is quite small and as it was a new build when we moved here 19 years ago all that's in it and how it looks is down to me, except for the pond, which is my husband's pride & joy so I leave that completely to him.

I've only taken a big interest in gardening over the past couple of years so because I understand a little bit more about what I'm doing now lets just say it's a working progress and is evolving nicely, even if I do say so myself

Violas or pansies. Which is superior?

Posted: 20/03/2013 at 08:54

I much prefer violas because of their daintyness. Pansies are "a bit in your face" for me

Morning all. Not seen the forcast for today yet but looking outside there's no frost and it's dry although a little dull so I'm going to get my work done then hopefully put my new mini green house together and sow my chilli & sweet peppers. Have a good day everyone x

Flippin well said Brian! Couldn't have said it better myself and I for one will be posting here again tomorrow and I hope not to be the only one.

I don't give a jot what the thread is called but what I do know is that when it first started this morning I quite liked the feel of what it was all about and where it was going and felt it was something I'd like to contribute to and to be honest I'm astonished it has cone to this!

Evening all I trust you've all had a good day.

Thank you BrummieBen for the advice re my sweetpeas. I'll leave them be then and see how they go. I've done loads so even if I loose a lot I'll still have enough to add some colour and fragrance to the garden.

The weather has been relatively ok here today and no where near as bad as the forcaste predicted. 

I went to the garden centre but resisted the temptation to buy, instead I went to Wilkies to get a replacement cover for my mini greenhouse and much to my annoyance found they've changed the size of them so ended up buying a new one plus a replacement cover for it! Oh and I bought yet more seeds.....heaven knows where I'm going to put them all  Going to have a bash at growing chillies and sweet pepper

Morning everyone  I think I'll take a visit to the garden centre (1st visit of the year) so see what in & what's not! Then sow some more seeds before I take my daughter to the dentist.

I'm contemplating should or shouldn't I re sow sweetpeas...I'm a relative novice to garening and someone suggested I sow sweetpeas in toliet roll holders but when I checked them yesterday I saw the cardboard is going mouldy and don't think it will do the plants much good. Shame really because I can just see the little plants beginning to emerge 

Supermarket seeds

I have had lots of flower seeds from Morrisons and they have always come up well for me as have Wilkinsons seeds. I have sowed today some I got from pound stretcher which were I think 79p per packet or 2 packets for £1   there wasn't too much variety on offer but enough for what I want so a real bargin as long as at least some of them produce what they are supposed to

I have a young plant which I bought last year, repotted and it has been kept in a plastic covered mini greenhouse over the winter. It looks like it's over wintered pretty well. I am wondering if it will be OK in a pot 13" wide trained up a 4ft support?  

Please correct me if I'm wrong but I believe these plants don't grow quite as big as some Jasmines???

Wow thank you for the link!

I suppose mine has been a tad neglected for the past few months (as has the whole garden unfortunately!) I have been out today to have a little tidy up and noticed it seems to be growing up out of the pot. I only bought the plant last year and had 2 flower heads again this year So after reading the link I'll definately leave them be and hopefully get a couple more flower heads next year.
