Internet purchasing

Posted: 10/03/2013 at 17:50

  I buy lots online.The packaging is so good now that nothing gets damaged. I find that I can get tiny plant plugs much cheaper than buying at GC.

Verdun where did you get your Hellebore from please?

Watering Systems

Posted: 10/03/2013 at 17:38


Last year I tried to set up a system but using all thin tube. I found that water didn't get through to all plants. Would I be better changing to 13mm tube?

What is the maximum number of drippers that could be run off one pipe?

Thank you for your detailed info on this.

What's the weather like in your area?

It is grey on the south coast. Looks as if it will rain soon.

I was trying to decide which to buy on friday- it came as a pot luck choice in the end. Having bought it I went into Lidl where there was a pack which had been opened- I must say it looked very nice.

Noooooooo they're awake.........

I just squish underfoot- but some of the big onesare getting quite hard to do. Think I may get a pair of scissors especially for the job.

New plants but panicking over predicted snow/frost this week!

This forum is by far the best place for advise

just made my 1st ever hanging baskets

If you can unplant it then why not get some pansies or viola and plant it up with these for now. I got a tray of 20 tiny viola for £1.40 earlier in the week in B&Q. They also had larger pansies which could be planted into the basket now very cheap.
