Nottingham - I'm a tad bias, but as a nottingham lass I'm chuffed that a nottingham company is being used and acknowledged for excellent service. Have I said nottingham enough times in this message?!! Nottingham Nottingham, Nottingham! Love it me duck!

I built mine up with horse poop, cheap compost, a bit of sand n grit, and top soil. Put it down in the autumn to give it chance to break down and mix up. Got fab results. Good luck with it.

Autumn Lawn Care

On moss I used an Arthur j bowers one last year and it worked a treat. Not the most expensive brand but very good. A also use treatments from good old wilko's. Always get good results with their stuff.

On the scarifying front, I used a good take-away and complete control of the TV remote for one night; worked a treat on getting my other half busy with the rake!

When and which plants in pots to but in the greenhouse over winter...

Hello, when it comes to plants in pots, which ones need to be taken in over winter for a bit of protection from the cold please? In particular, an azalea, rhodedendron (sorry about the spelling!) and a cameallia (yep, again soz on the spelling front!). 

Thanks muchly.

Plant catnip plant outside in Spring or Autumn?

Posted: 20/09/2014 at 17:41

It's pretty tough stuff so if you get it out now it's probs still warm enough for it to bed in. It dies down over winter anyway. I cut mine right back to the ground and it makes for a stunning display in late spring and summer. Really really easy to propagate so you could take a cutting from your plant just incase.

gardeners world theme tune

I totally agree. I love the theme tune. Seem to recall them showing the recording of it a few years back.

I also love love love the first words which are Monty's "hello"! My other half does a great impression.

Agree that 9.30pm is a bit late.  Looking forward to it being on earlier next week.
